Identify weeds in eastern North America with this pocket-size guide.
You can appreciate and enjoy nature’s plants and wildflowers—even during late fall and winter! If you’re curious about the dry, non-woody plants that you encounter, then Winter Weed Finder by Dorcas S. Miller is just what you need. With the handy, easy-to-use booklet, you can identify common native and naturalized herbs and native ferns throughout much of the eastern United States and parts of southern Canada.
The book provides a dichotomous key to identifying non-woody plants in late fall and winter. Simply answer a series of simple questions about the shape or appearance of the dried structures that remain after frost, such as pods, dried flower heads, seed capsules, and burrs. Along the way, professional illustrations by Ellen Amendolara help to guide you to a positive identification.
