I have collected (only from populations being bulldozed or destroyed) and grown wildflowers for 20
odd years now.  In the spring wildflowers are some of the first plants to come up, right beside the
crocus and snowdrops. I love Iris cristata, shooting stars, rue anemones and trilliums and grow several
varities of each, they come and go quickly, but what a show they produce.
I have several references I use, but two espicially come to mind.  I have used "A Guide to the
Wildflowers & Ferns of Kentucky" for 20 years, most if not all Tennessee plants native to this region
are in this book.  A few years ago, I also came across "Wildflowers of North Carolina", which is
another great reference, I think both are still in print.  I use them because the notations are direct and to
the point with a color photo.
