A new, updated edition of the classic key to identifying wildflowers that grow in the range of the Coast Redwood tree, Sequoia sempervirens, along the coastal fog belt of California. Organized as a dichotomous key, leading the user first to flower families and then to the species. Includes flowers of sunny openings, fields, and streamsides, as well as flowers of the forest floor.
Heavily illustrated with line drawings that clearly show important plant features. The key format encourages users to look closely at plant structures, leads to accurate identification, and is fun to use. Names and flower families have been updated to conform to the latest edition of the Jepson Manual.
