NP007. A Guide to the Wildflowers of South Carolina / Porcher & Rayner
A Guide to the Wildflowers of South Carolina by Richard Dwight Porcher and Douglas Alan Rayner. Paper

More plants than NC's state guide including ones with less showy flowers. It's a great book and highly recommended, but has its drawbacks for use as a field guide. It is presented by region/plant communities rather than by botanical families, which means that different members of a genus are scattered throughout the book. And the location of a plant is somewhat arbitrary if the plant is found in more than one community. It is also a thick, heavy book and the photos often show only the flower. Through the plants you learn the various plant communities within the larger regions (mountains, piedmont, and coastal).
2002, 544pp., 7 x 10 inches, 683 color and 11 b&w illustrations.
