Wild Flowers

Florida has nearly 4,000 species of flowering plants in more than 190 families.  The term "wildflower" has many connotations: one person's wildflower is another person's weed, a plant growing where it is not wanted. Following are some images of the more common wildflowers found in Florida.  I have placed the images in six color groups based on the most prominent color of the flower.
