She discovered two previously unknown plants, which were named for her, and devoted sixty years of her life to this endeavor, producing over 1,000 illustrations, most of which are now housed at the Bowdoin College Library.Plants and Flowers of Maine: Kate Furbish's Watercolors presents nearly 1,300 of Furbish's color paintings, all printed full size.
