The best identification book of the most colorful Rocky Mountain wildflowers is now available in a convenient Pack Guide. * Superb photos of the most "showy" Rocky Mountain wildflowers* Excellent descriptions by horticulturist Jim EllsThe 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 an array of stunningly beautiful wildflowers. Rocky Mountain Wildflowers includes 150 of the most "showy," beautiful, colorful, and striking wildflowers based on years of observation. The range of wildflowers runs from the deep red Plains Prickly Pear in the foothills to delicate purple Fairy Slippers in the deep moist subalpine forests. 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 it may be found
Jim Ells, retired associate professor of horticulture at Colorado State University, has spent a lifetime identifying and cataloging Rocky Mountain wildflowers. Photographer Marlene Borneman has worn through several sets of boots and cameras collecting stunning images of wildflowers up and down the spine of the continent..
