Each year we receive hundreds of wildflower photos from our fabulous customers. These awe-inspiring shots range from sweeping meadows with thousands of blooms to small gardens planted with annuals. We have the amazingly fun job of looking through all of these wildflower photos throughout the year. You may have even noticed many of them on our Facebook or Instagram accounts.
In 2016 we received so many spectacular wildflower photos we decided to put together some of our favorite meadows for you to enjoy. We love spending the winter months planning and organizing for spring planting. We hope these customer meadows help inspire you to do the same!
Our Favorite Wildflower Photos From 2016
Whether you have acres of land or a small city plot, wildflowers are an easy, colorful solution for your landscape. Wildflowers – native or not – also help our disappearing pollinator population in a big way. A long-blooming meadow or plot of wildflowers provides food, habitat and breeding grounds for bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. So as we look back at our favorite wildflower photos from 2016, we hope you’ll get inspired to plant your own meadow in 2017. We look forward to seeing your photos!
