Hands-down the best wildflower guide for the PNW!
Debbie Teashon
When I am out in the field, I want a book that makes wildflower identification as fast and effortless as possible. This guide accomplishes just that. Wildflowers of the Pacific Northwest is divided into sections by flower color, and then further divided by the number of flower petals, followed by family, genus and species.

If you live in or are traveling through the Pacific Northwest, this is the gold standard for flower (and plant) identification. Arranged by flower color and subdivided by number of petals, this is the field-guide I go to first when I encounter a new-to-me flower. Turner is an excellent photographer, and his descriptions are very helpful. Along with Pojar's "Plants of the Pacific Northwest," this is the book I keep in my backpack and on my desk.

This is my most recent pick of guide books. I still have a lot of unidentified plants, but that's because I'm drawn to the unique places and the rare things that don't make the cut for most guide books. Still this one seems to cover the most ground and give good descriptions that can get me the flower I seek, or something very close.

Great for quick in-the-field ID when you don't have the time to formally key out a species. I love that it is organized by color/petal number instead of family. This is a great feature for quicker identification.

A great field guide- has helped me identify many plants in my yard. I don't always find the layout the easiest to use. I have several other books I use as reference in addition to this field guide, for when I find I just want an easier or quick answer.
