More than 500 Great Plains wildflowers can be found in this classic plant guide for enthusiasts and horticulturists. Author Claude A. Barr has spent decades observing plants in the wild and growing them for his nursery, as well as studying scientific sources. This edition of “Jewels of the Plains” incorporates this scientific information, as well as an introduction and notes by botanist and horticulturist James H. Locklear, adding a new and contemporary perspective. This is an interesting read and great source for any horticulturalist, filled with an index, glossary of terms, colored photos and detailed information on each plant.—Breana Roy
