Lately, there seem to be many wildflower guides being published with glossy color photographs depicting the most photogenic species of a particular region. These guides are targeted for the local amateur naturalist or homeowner interested in knowing a few of the wildflowers in their neighborhood. Such a book could also find its way to the shelf of professional botanists or naturalists in the region as an occasional reference.

One hundred seems to be the magic number in making a list. There are the 100 best movies, the 100 best books, and now we have Teri Dunn's collection of the 100 Favorite Garden Wildflowers. And a handsome volume it is, obviously designed for a coffee table with over a hundred color photographs, a graceful, well-written text, and a lavish use of white space — always a sign of a "class" publication.
