Wildflowers of New York City By Andrew Garn Cover Image
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


New York City is defined by a certain kind of grit and perseverance, its history sprinkled with stories of unlikely successes found where most would not have thought to go. The flora and fauna of the five boroughs are no exception, and Wildflowers of New York City introduces us to some of the over 2,000 wildflowers that eke out an existence there.

Andrew Garn's stunning photography invites us to look, and then look again--to appreciate the marvels that we might have otherwise passed by. Through his lens, the humble burdock and chicory become works of art. Pokeweed assumes an ethereal beauty.

Wildflowers of New York City encourages readers to take the time to notice the hidden, to seek out and reflect on the overlooked beauty in crowded spaces, and to wonder at these tenacious plants that thrive and prosper in ways and places we might never expect.

Contributors Allison C. Meier, Donald J. Leopold
