A Guide to the Spring Flowers of Minnesota was first published in 1937. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.

This well-known students’ handbook contains fully illustrated keys, a glossary, and indexes of the common and scientific names of both the native and the cultivated flowers of the state. While the authors make no claim to its completeness beyond the boundaries of Minnesota, the guide will be found useful in adjacent states.
