The Flora of Virginia is in print!

Virginia Native Plant Society shares it is time to celebrate~ 

12 years in the making The Flora of Virginia, a book cataloging Virginia’s native plants, has now been published and is already in the hands of those who pre-ordered. This historic accomplishment is the product of 12 years of work between collaborating partners, with members of the Virginia Native Plant Society providing funding, leadership, and expertise. The Flora describes 3,164 taxa in 200 families, with 1,400 captioned, scaled, and botanically accurate drawings.

This is the perfect gift for that Master Naturalist in your life - hint hint. You know the person who seems to have everything? Well they don't have this! Not yet anyway.

This is a very valuable, long awaited resource.
