Appalachian Trailplace - sample pages
This guide lists spring wildflowers commonly seen along the Trail in the South (locations
indicated by in the "Thru-hiker Notes" section). Flowers are listed by main color,
then alphabetically. The brief descriptions are not intended for the serious user, but
for the novice. If mistakes are made, so what? As Shakespeare said, "What's in a
name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet." Have fun
trying to identify wildflowers; above all, simply enjoy seeing them.
