Illinois Wildflowers
Title: Illinois Wildflowers
Creator: Hilty, John
Abstract: This website contains descriptions, photographs, and range maps of many wildflowers and other plants in Illinois. These plants consist primarily of herbaceous flowering plants and some woody plants, whether native to Illinois or introduced from somewhere else. A wildflower, as defined here, is any flowering plant that flourishes and reproduces on its own without any direct assistance (or very little assistance) from people and their activities. A wildflower may occur in natural areas of high quality, or it may occur at ecologically degraded sites that are disturbed by human-related activities. The flowers of these plants may be large and showy, or they may be small and insignificant. Some non-flowering plants are included in this website (e.g., ferns & horsetails); such plants produce spores, rather than flowers and seeds. [Information of the supplier]
