Flora of the Yellowstone is a 408 page, full-color book by Author Whitney Tilt about Yellowstone's diverse vegetation.
All proceeds go to benefit the Gallatin Valley Land Trust and other conservation organizations.
The Greater Yellowstone Region is a land accented by wildflowers—from diminutive orchids to plants that flower once every 60 years. Taken together, their forms, colors and habits are diverse and compelling. Included here are more than 400 wildflowers, grasses, shrubs and trees readily found in the Greater Yellowstone Region, including Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.
Designed for easy use, this guide presents a clear overview of each species, complete with photos and illustrations, botanical description, preferred habitats, and interesting tidbits on the plant’s ecology and cultural use. Species are organized by family, and a quick-reference guide in the front displays flowers and distinctive fruits by color.
Whether you are hiking, camping, enjoying a walk, or just driving through, Flora of the Yellowstone is the field guide to take along.
