All About Wildflowers!
What Are Wildflowers?
A wildflower is a flower that grows naturally in the environment - it is not purposely planted or seeded. Wildflowers are not hybrid plants. Hybrid plants are plants that are formed by combining two different varieties of plants to form a new one.

Wildflowers can be found anywhere in nature! Whether you're in a dark forest, in the middle of a desert, near a stream or river or in the middle of a meadow, there is sure to be wildflowers around!
Wildflowers are the original source of many cultivated flowers you will find in your garden.
Wildflowers are easily adaptable to different soils and weather conditions, which makes them hearty and allows them to thrive in the wild.
Many wildflowers are native plants that provide food (nectar, leaves, seeds and pollen) to the local birds, bees, butterflies and other insects/animals.
While most wildflowers are native plants (see below to read about native plants!)
