Collins Gem Wild Flowers will enable anyone who is in the countryside, whether on a walk along the coast or in the mountains or a ramble through woodland, fields or wetlands, to identify hundreds of flower species.
Each wild flower entry includes:
• Identifying illustrations and description of appearance and colour
• Size, type of habitat, geographical range and flowering season
• Herbal medicinal uses
The introduction has sections on the parts of the flower, stem, leaf and fruit, and information on the common and scientific names of wild flowers.
