Simplicity & Complexity: Wildflowers of the Piedmont (and Some of the Rest of North America)

When gardeners think about flowers, they often conjure up visions of exotic plants from far-off lands, forgetting that our native wildlflowers--although familiar--are at least as attractive and colorful as horticultural imports. Some--like the Ox-eye Daisy--appear to be simple in structure, but a closer view such as that provided by Bill Hilton Jr. of Hilton Pond Center for Piedmont Natural History reveals this common backyard blossom is actually quite complex. Colorful slides and interesting tidbits by educator-naturalist-photographer Hilton will give you a much greater appreciation for Piedmont flora.
