Flower Identification

The wildflower identification page will be an ongoing project. As I find new flowers or continue to search through older photos, new species will be added. I have tried to show the flower and in some cases the leaves or plant habit as well for better identification. Also keep in mind that they can look slightly different depending on the progress through the bloom cycle and some buds are different color than the open flower. At first I was going to only include native species but have come to realize that we need to identify what we find, including alien species. Some trees and shrubs that bloom lower enough to see the flowers are also being include. If you are interested in the scientific names they can be provided upon request.
