A former First Lady, collaborates with a leading horticulturalist to present information on preserving and growing native wildflowers

Perseus Publishing
With page after page of breathtaking photographs, this highly praised volume is a veritable bouquet of hundreds of America's favorite wildflowers, arranged by region. In the text Lady Bird Johnson, in collaboration with an eminent horticulturist, makes a compelling argument for the preservation and proliferation of the natural beauty of our country's native flora. Since her childhood Mrs. Johnson has loved wildflowers, and on her seventieth birthday she founded a research center, now known as the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, with the aim of encouraging the use of more native plants and flowers in gardens and landscaping. This book includes a foreword by Mrs. Johnson, as well as up-to-date information about the Center.
The book also deals with such practical matters as how to establish your own wildflower meadow and where to get the seeds if you need them. Wildflowers Across America is an invaluable guide to one of our country's most varied and lovely resources, written by one of her most gracious ladies.
