Wild Edible Playing Cards

Description from amazon:
This is a unique deck of playing cards which allows you to play your favorite cards games and at the same time learn about common edible plants of North America. In addition to vivid photos, thorough descriptions, and nutritional highlights, these cards also includes common sense guidelines for safe and happy foraging. All the wild edible information within this package is tried and true and has been tested extensively by Sergei Boutenko, author of "Wild Edibles: A Practical Guide to Foraging, with Easy Identification of 60 Edible Plants and 67 Recipes." Note: While these cards are aimed at North American, the plants they cover can also be found in Europe, Australia, and Asia. 3 PURPOSES FROM ONE DECK OF CARDS: 1.) A regular deck of poker cards to play your favorite games 2.) A wild edible guide (used to learn new plants) 3.) A foragers quiz (by reading the plant descriptions on the back of the cards and then trying to guess what plant is on the front of the card you can turn these cards into flashcards)

The idea of cards seems fun for this lifelong ethnobotany student. I thought I might get a set or the poster or something so I looked closer.

I'm curious, in the "sample card" above, which shows common mallow Malvaceae parvifolia, is the other card supposed to be a description of the mallow?

I was glad to see the sample card is a plant I am very familiar with, and thought I could compare Sergei's botanical- ethnobotanical- nutrition- wild edible knowledge with mine, to find out if he had new information for me, that I could rely in when it came to plants I don't already know.

So, can someone clarify that for me?

Thanks so much

I've had my eye on this deck for a while. It's on my wishlist. I love wild edibles and I will even transplant them into my garden!

I really enjoy his videos and films.
