NC Wildflowers

Have you ever been on a hike and wondered what was the name of that pretty flower on the side of the trail?  Do you enjoy going on wildflower hikes in the spring?  If so, then the North Carolina Literary Map has quite the list for you!

Botanist, writer, and professor Timothy Spira focuses on the western part of NC with the aptly titled "Wildflowers and Plant Communities of the Southern Appalachian Mountains and Piedmont".  Experienced botanist and writer Bruce Sorrie focuses on the eastern part of NC with "A Field Guide to Wildflowers of the Sandhills Region".  Both books are part of the "Southern Gateways Guide" series and are highly-acclaimed.  They contain color photo keys.  The various plants described therein are organized into different ecological communities.

Interested in learning more?  Then check out these books at your local library or bookstore!  Happy reading!  Enjoy your wildflower hikes!
