Wildflowers of Montana, the first comprehensive wildflower field guide devoted entirely to Montana, is brimming with beautiful color photographs of more than 350 plant species. Plants are conveniently arranged by common family name with a special section on flowering shrubs. Descriptive narratives provide identifying features and give the plant’s range in Montana. Schiemann notes the location and month of each photograph so interested readers can visit the author’s favorite sites at blooming time. With Wildflowers of Montana as your guide, you’ll find fringecup–-a rare beauty in Glacier National Park; rock clematis at Crystal Lake in the Big Snowy Mountains south of Lewistown; and pygmy bitterroot in the Gravelly Range south of Ennis. A key of thumbnail photographs, arranged according to flower shape and color, helps readers locate wildflowers in the book.
