This is a delightfully illustrated book, beautifully designed and with lots of variety in the choice of plant subjects. I admired the standard of painting and the fresh, appealing studies which will be attractive to both naturalists and gardeners.
Dr. Shirley Sherwood OBE, Botanical art collector
The U.S. Botanic Garden was thrilled to be a part of this book as it embodies what we know to be vital—our world is better and richer with fine botanical art, and the plants in our backyards, in our woods, and along the roadsides are amazing!
Holly Shimizu, Executive Director, U.S. Botanic Garden
Like the exquisitely illustrated floras from past centuries, this volume carries on a rich tradition of detailed and deftly created botanical artistry. Each painting portrays the abundance and diverse beauty of the natural world around us, from early spring ephemerals to the towering monarchs of our deciduous forests.
Peggy Cornett, Curator of Plants at Monticello
Native Plants of the Mid Atlantic – a beautiful book on botanical art that speaks to the mind, the heart, and the environment.
Derek Norman, President, American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA)
The beauty of the botanical illustrations and of their pollinators is breathtaking and the scientific accuracy is outstanding. The accompanying text with fascinating information on pollination and other life cycle insights as well as historical medical and other uses of these fascinating native plants makes them come alive for the reader. This book is a visual delight and a good read for anyone who has an interest in our native plants and would like to learn more about them.
