This is the must-have field guide and classroom text to wildflowers of cismontane Southern California. In a bold new approach, it discusses wildflowers and some of the wildlife (mostly insects) associated with it (guilds), making it much more than a traditional wildflower guide. Tailored to Orange County and adjacent portions of Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, and San Diego Counties, it presents wildflowers that occur in many portions of California. It includes sections on geology, geography, flower parts, scientific names, plant communities, field safety, and places to go wildflower-watching, all accompanied by photographs and illustrations. Wildflower species are presented within major plant groups, then alphabetically within families, except for the sunflower family which is arranged by similar and/or related species.

In addition to common and not-so-common wildflower species, it presents rare species not found in other field guides, such as San Diego and Pendleton button-celeries; Encinitas baccharis; southern, smooth, paniculate, and graceful tarplants, big-leaved crownbeard, Allen’s daisy; Hubby’s and Santiago Peak phacelias; Hammitt’s clay-cress; small-flowered morning-glory; Blochman’s, many-stemmed, sticky, and Laguna Beach live-forevers; Braunton’s milkvetch; heart-leaved pitcher-sage; intermediate and Hall’s large-flowered monardellas; Cleveland’s bush and Palomar monkeyflowers; spreading and prostrate navarretia; Fish’s milkwort; peninsular, Parry’s, San Fernando Valley Long-spined, and slender-horned spineflowers; Munz’s onion; Catalina, Plummer’s, and intermediate mariposa lilies; chaparral beargrass; and thread-leaved and Santa Rosa Plateau brodiaeas.

Guilds discussed include milkweed, cactus, California sycamore, California buckwheat, California lilac, yucca, and cattail. Associated species include insects such as monarch butterfly, goldenbush borer beetle, snowberry clearwing moth, and native bees; and birds such as coastal California gnatcatcher, cactus wren, Anna’s hummingbird, and phainopepla.
