Annotation: Plant and horticultural specialists at Denver Botanic Gardens spent three years poring over plant lists and narrowed the list of wild flowers in the Rocky Mountains to 1,200 that hikers and visitors were likely to encounter. Then they acquired photographs (sometimes by climbing a mountain and taking them), and wrote descriptions to provide an extensive identification key. The top category is by color of the flower--green, maroon and brown, orange, pink and red, purple and blue, white and cream, and yellow--then by number of petals. The entries contain descriptions, plant names, abundance, bloom season, growth cycle, height, life zones, photograph, distribution map, and whether or not the plant is native.
