Have you ever considered using native wildflowers in your flower garden or for other landscaping projects?
Wildflowers native to North Dakota are adapted to the region’s climate and soils, and are just as nice to look at as the more commonly planted introduced flowers that you can buy from a greenhouse. Many native species are perennial and do not need to be replanted every year. It’s a good idea to select species that bloom at different times so your garden has lasting color throughout the growing season; doing this will benefit butterflies and other pollinating species as well. Native seeds are available from a number of seed distributors in the region and can be ordered online or, in many cases, purchased locally. The links below provide information on planting times, bloom periods for different species, and pictures of the different native wildflowers.
