Are you landscaping with Florida's native wildflowers? 

The Wildflowers, Naturally! program recognizes your contribution to natural Florida.

Many of our state’s 2,500 native species adapt well to home or commercial landscapes and create natural habitat gardens with “real Florida” style. More people are discovering the pleasure that comes from growing native wildflowers – from their simple beauty to enjoying the butterflies, birds and other wildlife they draw.

The Wildflowers, Naturally! program recognizes gardens throughout the state that have areas dedicated to native wildflowers, flowering shrubs and trees. With your help, we can celebrate these gardens and illustrate a unique way to create beautiful corridors that sustain wildlife and pollinators.

 

GET INSPIRED! View recognized landscapes.

By using wildflowers in your landscape, you'll help to support Florida's pollinators, conserve water through reduced irrigation (right plant, right place), protect water and air quality, and supply wildlife habitat.

Planting Tips

How it works

  • Establish a wildflower landscape on your residential or commercial property. It should contain a minimum of 75 percent Florida native wildflowers (Download the native wildflower definition) and cover at least 50 square feet.
  • When your landscape is complete, fill out the application (the application fee has been waived for a limited time for FWF members; the non-member fee is $15). You’ll answer questions about plant species and diversity and upload at least three photos. You’ll earn points for gardening practices that minimize human impact and increase habitat value for resident and migrating insects, birds and animals.
