Niemiera, Alexander X.
MetadataShow full item record
The goal of this publication is to present small, medium, and large shrubs that have showy flowers. While all woody plants have flowers (or flowerlike structures for gymnosperms), only a subset of these plants has somewhat attractive or very showy flowers. We enjoy the beauty of showy flowers, yet showy flowers exist in nature as advertisements and attractants for insect visitation and subsequent pollination.
