The rich tallgrass prairies of Iowa are home to some of the most spectacular pollinator-friendly plants in the US Midwest. These include Ironweed, Black-eyed Susans, various asters, and state flower Prairie Rose. Almost 2000 species of plants grow in Iowa across its prairies, dense forests, floodplains, pothole wetlands, and river valleys. Those who look to plants as an entry point to understanding different ecosystems often need a starting point such as the portable reference Iowa Trees & Wildflowers. This beautifully illustrated collection features 140 common and familiar trees, shrubs, and wildflowers and includes an ecoregion map on the back panel showing over 20 botanical sanctuaries and learning sites. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is the ideal companion for educators, learners, naturalists, and botanists who wish to forge a more meaningful connection with the land through its diverse flora.
