Rocky Mountain Wildflowers Field Guide is for all nature enthusiasts who want to learn more about wildflowers throughout Colorado's Rocky Mountain Region. Information includes common, scientific and family names, a brief description, and each wildflower's habitat, life zone, and general flowering time. Line drawings of flower parts and arrangements and leaf shapes and arrangements help clarify terms in the guide. Wildflowers were photographed from Rocky Mountain National Park to the Mosquito Range, and from Crested Butte to the southern San Juan Mountain Ranges. Clear, detailed images depict some of the most common as well as some uncommon wildflowers that one might find along trails and roadsides. The 200 plus wildflowers in the guide are grouped according to color so one can quickly find and identify an unfamiliar flower. Indexes of common and scientific names link to individual pages with descriptions. The guide is written by Linda Nagy with photographs by her husband, nature photographer, Bernie Nagy.

One of the many features of this second edition is that he has photographed both the flower and plant to aid in identification. An additional feature of the second edition is that some of the photos from the first edition have been upgraded with the help of volunteer wildflower photographers. Organized by color and then alphabetically by family name and genus, Rocky Mountain Flora has images of each flower, the plant, and detailed descriptions of stems, leaves and flowers, and includes the specific location, elevation, and time of the year the flower was found.
