ROCKY MOUNTAIN WILDFLOWERS

* Superb photos of the most "showy" Rocky Mountain wildflowers * Wildflowers from New Mexico up through Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and Alberta. * Excellent descriptions by horticulturist Jim Ells The Rocky Mountains, from northern New Mexico through southern Alberta are collectively referred to as the "spine of the continent." Along the flanks of this spine you will find a starting array of stunningly beautiful wildflowers in the life zones from the foothills at 5,000 feet to alpine zone at 11,000 feet. Rocky Mountain Wildflowers is the author's selection of the 150 most "showy," beautiful, colorful, and striking wildflowers based on years of observation. The range of wildflowers runs from the deep red Plains Prickly Pear to pink Showy Milkweed in the foothills to delicate purple Fairy Slippers and the pink Woodland Pinedrops in deep moist subalpine forests and to the Alpine Buttercups and Yellow Avalanche Lillys at treeline. Every great Rocky Mountain wildflower is included. Each plant is described by its common name, its scientific name and then by the appearance of the stem, leaves and flower and the most likely plant life zones where the flower may be found.
