Review quotes
“An excellent field guide. . . . a must-have book for both plant lovers and folks who are curious about the natural landscape of this region.” —Coastal Home  

“A functional field guide that promises to be useful to both professionals and amateurs interested in New England flora.” —Choice

Wildflowers of New England, written by Ted Elliman, a botanist and plant ecologist for the New England Wild Flower Society, and published earlier this year, is a great tool that can enhance your enjoyment of the outdoors. . . . Elliman describes the plants in clear, concise language. Like his prose, the photographs offer clear close-ups that aid in identifying plants.” —Portland Press Herald

“Chances are, any plant you come across in the region you’ll be able to find in Elliman’s 448-page guide.” —The Providence Journal

“This book not only has beautiful and helpful images—the introduction is a veritable course in botany. . . . Wildflowers of New England is a substantial little book, in many ways, but the heavy, shiny cover, complete with ruler marking, is tough enough to take on hikes for frequent onsite referrals.” —The Recorder
