The Tennessee Native Plant Society's official field guide covers about 1,250 species (including some 50 orchid species) in 16 states. Naturalists and nature photographers present introductory material and plant accounts with color photos. While their folk uses are noted, the authors advise against using these plants medicinally. Features include a regional map, color key, and visual glossary.
A review of this field guide written by Paul Rebmann appeared in the spring 2010 edition of The Palmetto, the journal of the Florida Native Plant Society.
