One thing I never tire of along Florida’s trails: the constant parade of wildflowers we enjoy year-round. Different habitats see peak blooms at different times of year, meaning you have opportunities everywhere to see something in bloom. Flamboyant tropical flowers, delicate orchids, masses of pitcher plants, hillsides covered in trillium – we’ve got it all!
This section is to help you identify wildflowers you see along the trail. Two important resources I recommend highly are a membership in the Florida Wildflower Foundation and use of the Atlas of Florida Vascular Plants to help you with your wildflower identification!
If you’re looking for more places to see wildflowers in Florida, be sure to grab a copy of my book Exploring Florida’s Botanical Wonders, too!
