This book explains the easiest way of telling flowers and plants. These ways are based upon the new classification. The first way of telling flowers is by color. It is the simplest means of identification, and to this the most space is given. Secondly, flowers may be identified by their dwelling-places or habitats. Thirdly, flowers are shown by seasons, the time and order of their blossoms.
