    Default Looking for Wildflower ID Guides

    I found these two:
    http://www.amazon.com/National-Audub.../dp/0394504321
    http://www.amazon.com/Newcombs-Wildf.../dp/0316604429

    Are they any good?
    Are there any for Pennsylvania or this region?

    I can highly recommend Dianne Sammataro and Ann Harman's new pocket guide: Major Flowers Important to Honey Bees in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic States.

    I bought it at EAS from the Bee Culture table, most suppliers should have it as well. It's a spiral wound flip page booklet, 40 pages with a photo and a brief summary description of each flower. $17

    Thanks for that.
    I searched the bee culture site, brushy Mtn, Kelley's, Barnes and noble and amazon along with the google.
    Didnt find it.

    I'd call Bee Culture when you get a chance. They had a bunch of them at EAS for sale. They may not have them out for distribution yet.

    I picked up another book at EAS: Honey Plants of North America - a reprint by John Lovell. It was recommended by an instructor in a Bee class I'm taking. Black and white photos, but a lot more detail, 400 pgs @ $20. But, of course I don't see this book in the catalogs either...

    Lovell's book 17.95 at Brushy. This is more of a reference book, though.
