This beautifully illustrated guide identifies nearly 300 common plants in Indiana's most prominent ecosystem—the Eastern Deciduous Forest. For ease of identification, the plants are arranged by flower color or growth form, providing a convenient way to distinguish a great majority of plants in any given woodland. Generous treatment is given to all major vascular plant groups of the forest, such as wildflowers, ferns, shrubs, trees, grasses, and sedges. Michael A. Homoya not only helps with identification, but also offers information on a plant's habitat, flowering period, familial relationships, biology, and connections to Indiana. For the garden enthusiast and habitat restorer, there is a section on landscaping and natural community restoration using native forest plants.

This is the best Wildflowers book I've ever seen. I'm a beginner naturalist and have a hard time identifying trees, shrubs, and wildflowers in books that cover larger regions, like "Eastern US" or "North America." I think this book is easier to use than others for two reasons. 1. It only covers plants that are in this region so you don't have as many to look through. 2. It uses pictures instead of drawings and the pictures are also from this region. In the wider-range books, sometimes the only picture they have of a given plant is of the wrong variety and it's hard to be sure that you've got the right plant just by reading the description of the one that grows in Indiana.

The book covers more than just wildflowers. It has a nice section on trees and woody vines/shrubs. I've been able to identify nearly every flower, tree, and shrub I've come across out at St. Pat's, Rum Village, and Fernwood with the use of this book.

The book also includes descriptions of 12 different bioregions in Indiana and an introduction to plant identification that describes flower structure.
