Great Smoky Mountains Wildflowers is helpfully arranged in blooming sequence. The hallmark of the Great Smoky Mountains is its tremendous diversity of plant life. In the span of half an hour, your automobile carries you from the lowland flora of North Carolina and Tennessee to the top of the mountains where the vegetation is reminiscent of northern New England and Canada. With pen and camera, and over a century of combined experience in the Park, the authors describe over 225 of the many wildflowers you are likely to encounter and give helpful suggestions of “when and where to find them.” Once you encounter a common species and find its page in the book, the surrounding pages’ flowers are found blooming at the same time. Revised and Expanded Fifth Edition.
