National Wildflower Week is observed May 5 through May 11 and celebrates nature’s bounty of wildflowers across the nation.  From sea to sea, wildflowers grow beside highways, in gardens and the hillside.  This week encourages citizens to understand their value and take steps to protect them.  Wildflowers help conserve water, reduce mowing costs, protect soil from erosion, and provide habitats for birds, butterflies and other wildlife.  Check out these names of popular wildflowers and you may find a name for your blossoming newborn.
