Everyday dandelions or showy orchids--wildflowers come in an amazing variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. The flowers all of us enjoy in our gardens and from florists--roses, irises, and orchids--were all developed from wild species. In their natural states, wildflowers add color and beauty to even the harshest of landscapes. Always a joy to look at, wildflowers also display some incredible adaptations to extreme environments. From snow-crested mountaintops to hot, arid deserts, to the lush heat of the tropical rain forests, beautiful blossoms have found a way to thrive. Inside this book, readers will discover wildflowers from all over the world--from far-off lands and nearby roadsides. WILDFLOWERS provides a close look at some of the most gorgeous and fascinating flowers in the world. Exotic orchids, blossoming cacti, and floating water lilies are all captured in over 80 brilliant color photographs. Gardeners, nature lovers, and anyone who appreciates these interesting plants will enjoy this book.
