Wildflowers are important to the environment—not only for their beauty but also for the food they provide for butterflies and bees, songbirds and wild turkey, even foxes and deer. This six-page publication introduces you to a few of the nearly 3,000 species of native or naturalized flowering plants in Alabama. Includes definitions of commonly used wildflower terms; a list of resources useful in wildflower identification; and suggestions for protecting, enhancing, and reestablishing wildflowers area—or introducing them into your home landscape.
