With over three thousand plant species, South Carolina is rich in flora. Alpine forests in the Appalachians differ markedly from the bald-cypress swamps of the bottomlands. There are also coastal barrier islands and pine-covered sandhills, each with their own unique plant communities. For many people, plants represent a major aspect of a landscape’s character, so it helps to get acquainted with the most representative species. You can do this with the portable reference South Carolina Trees & Wildflowers, which includes beautiful illustrations of 140 common and familiar trees, shrubs, and wildflowers, as well as an ecoregion map 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 are keen to improve their plant identification skills and forge deeper connections with plants and the fascinating landscapes they occupy. Made in the USA.
