Get the State Wildflower license plate to support the natural world

Everyone loves a field of flowers… especially the bees and butterflies that depend on them. But our flowers are vanishing from our rapidly developing landscape, and just when wildlife needs them the most.

Show your support for our natural world by purchasing the State Wildflower specialty license plate! Since 2000, the plate has raised more than $4.2 million for roadside wildflowers, gardens in public parks and schools, educational materials and more.

Two ways to purchase your plate

Give the plate as a gift

Wildflowers are the heart of native Florida. Many of our most treasured and threatened wild creatures depend on them for survival. But wildflowers themselves are threatened.

Your tax-deductible contribution to the Florida Wildflower Foundation provides butterfly and bee habitat, educational programming for all ages, and research that advances the knowledge we need to better nurture our native habitat. We can’t do this work without the support of people like you.

Please give today. Our natural world depends on it.

Wildflower Champions

Brightman and Nan Logan

A fifth-generation Floridian, Brightman Logan grew up roaming West Central Florida’s woods and wetlands. Now, much of the land he remembers – along with its creatures – is gone. He finds that troubling. “To me, there’s an urgency about preserving our habitats,” he says. “We’re losing so much of it so quickly.”

Through their longtime support of the Florida Wildflower Foundation, Brightman and his wife, Nan, are helping to reverse habitat loss and bring native wildflowers and plants to urban places.

Brightman and Nan Logan help protect and restore natural Florida through generous support for the Florida Wildflower Foundation.

“When I look at the Foundation’s accomplishments, I see the tremendous strides that have been made. We are leading the charge, making the public aware of Florida’s native plants and their roles in healthy habitat. The organization has done so much good for Florida.”
Brightman Logan
