Native wildflowers are truly a wonder of nature. These plants have a history dating back thousands of years and have adapted over time in their current habitats. Their unique colors, shapes and sizes add to the diversity and beauty of our landscapes. Apart from supporting the needs of local biodiversity, wildflowers have also been valued by humans for their medicinal and culinary properties.
As a way to recognize the importance of these incredible plants, every year, the first week of May is recognized as National Wildflower Week. This week long event gives us plenty of opportunities to reconnect with wildflowers and appreciate their contribution to our planet.
National Wildflower Week was started in 1987 by the Wildflower Preservation Society, now known as the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, to educate people on the importance of recognizing and preserving native wildflowers. Plenty of activities are conducted during this week, including nature walks and informative sessions, to celebrate the beauty of wildflowers and understand the importance of their conservation.
Native flowers play a crucial role in protecting the health of our local ecosystems. They provide an unlimited supply of pollen and nectar to local pollinators like bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. Wildflower meadows also act as crucial habitats for birds and other animals. The root systems of native wildflowers prevent soil erosion and improve soil quality, creating ideal conditions for other plant species to thrive.
Given these benefits and more, it becomes even more important for us to promote and preserve wildflowers for our future generations.
North America is home to a stunning variety of wildflowers with approximately 20,000* species growing in different regions. You might be surprised to learn that some of these species are already familiar to you. such as the Purple Coneflower, Black-eyed Susan, Wild Bergamot and more.
