Each species entry includes the scientific name, common name, habitats, general distribution in the state, months of blooming, size of the plants and the flowers or inflorescence, and a brief additional description of the plant. Photographs or drawings accompany most entries. Flowers that were introduced to the state or are on Indiana's endangered, threatened, and rare list are marked with a one-word notation indicating their status.
Species are grouped into families, which are arranged so that the most closely related and usually visually similar are in proximity. To assist the reader in identifying unknown wildflowers, a "Flower Finder" section depicts species based on the number of colored parts of the flower and also provides small drawings as visual guides.
With an emphasis on completeness, strong visual presentation, and simplicity of terminology, this book is useful to a broad audience, from the most inexperienced amateur to botanical professionals.
