This guide to common wildflowers of the Canyonlands, a region in the center of the Colorado Plateau, covers portions of several western states. Nature lovers will discover a variety of microhabitats that provide environmental conditions for a number of plant communities, sure to intrigue visitors to the area. The guide is divided into sections based on the color of a plant’s floral display. Each section includes color portraits of common flowers with their common and scientific names, descriptions, optimal bloom times, habitats and ranges, and comments on characteristics, origin, or history.
