I got this to help ID some wildflowers I photographed during a recent vacation back East. While I was there I relied mostly on the Peterson and Audubon guides to the eastern US, which are decent, but lacking in some key areas upon which this guide improves. Like the Peterson guide, it approaches comprehensiveness for the region, and like the Audubon guide, every single species has a color photograph.

Of the many flower and plant identification books I've tried, this one was the easiest to navigate and had the clearest pictures.

I wish there was a book that was as well organized as this one, and had equally clear photos, but also told you a bit about the plants. What are they used for? Where did they come from? Are they edible? Is it a bad idea to touch them? Maybe that's too much to fit in one book.

This is a wonderful field guide to most of the wildflowers of the northeast US. Unlike other wildflower field guides to the region, Clemant's book has photographs of every flower along with range maps. Clemant's descriptions are easily followed and the language used is written for the neophyte not the professional botantist. The most complete field guide of wildflowers for the region. Highly recommended.

I didn't read this so much as just look at every flower on every page. This book is awesome for identifying Northeastern plants by their blooms, organized by color and then by flower shape. There are color pictures of every flower and their leaves/plant bits along with a map of the areas they commonly grow in and what season they bloom in.
