The Wildflower Initiative

“Where flowers bloom, so does hope.”
Lady Bird Johnson, 1912-2007

Often referred to as Nature's paintbrush, wildflowers are one of Earth's great stand alones. Fiercely independent, they grow without cultivation. Equally at home in the wild or in your backyard, their colourful pedals evolved over 100 million years in partnership with one of the most important pollinators in the history of humankind -- the honeybee.

Wildflower Initiatives

There are over 20,000 species of wildflowers in North America belonging to 300 different families. Kissing cousins to the flowering food crops that end up on our dinner table, their colour and beauty grace our landscapes. From the delightful eye candy of wildflowers swaying in a meadow to a groaning board full of culinary delights, honeybees make it happen. Today half of the world-wide honeybee population has vanished and that does not bode well with the availability of natural food.

Often there appears to be a great divide between ecological problems and probable solutions. Not in this case. Without honeybees, our naturally grown, diversity-rich food sources are in jeopardy. We can turn things around by using practical applications that are accessible to everyone. In this case all you have to do is drop a seed or two.

Please Note: Spring and Summer Wildflower Seed Order is Now Closed.

Honeybees are critical to wildflower survival. And as part of Mother Nature's great master plan, wildflowers are critical to the honeybee survival. This symbiotic relationship enabled flowers and honeybees to dance the waltz of procreation worldwide ultimately resulting in the food we eat today.
