Many of our native wildflowers produce gorgeous blooms that add a brilliant splash of colour to any garden. This poster is a visual display of the beauty of Canadian wildflowers. It features 19 of our native species – just a small sample of the many attractive flowers found across Canada.
When unexpected greenery sprouts up from a garden, many are quick to get rid of what we assume are weeds. However, if they are wildflowers, they should be welcomed to your environment because they are a benefit to our native wildlife. Discover how some pollinators are entirely dependent on the availability of these wildflowers
Not only are Canada’s native flowers a beautiful addition to our landscape, but they lend a helping hand in any garden. If you find them sprouting up in your outdoor habitat, celebrate that they require less care, less fertilization and watering than exotic flowers which may have been bred for their showiness. They also require less protection from pests!
Note of Caution
Remember that removing these native flowers from the wild puts additional pressure on plants that are already threatened through loss of habitat. Visit our Wild About Gardening website for some native plant suppliers to suit your needs.
