It's hard to figure out which plants are wildflowers and which ones aren't, so lists like these are hard to come up with. Nevertheless, with help from our members we made a list of areas of the database that qualify, and here's the top 50 most popular species from among them!

So interesting to see wildflowers from all over the country. Some are old friends, others surprised me. Great photos, especially those including pollinators. Hopefully this will raise awareness and folks can plan to include more native plants in their beds. Even if they are not specifically native to your region (many of these are not for me but are readily available at nurseries), they will still attract pollinators.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

I grow many of our native American plants, and they do very well in the Pacific Northwest conditions. Even some that come from arid rocky place in the southwest states.
I love browsing through the top 50 list.
