Identifying wildflowers

A new series of beginner-friendly cribs helping people get started identifying the North East’s wildflowers.

Identifying wildflowers takes time. While many of us are happy sifting through field guides or keys (I certainly am), not everyone is. In fact, these can often be quite intimidating to beginners.

Starting out in botany, I certainly enjoyed things a little simpler – helpful tips instead of reams of text. That’s why I wanted to create some helpful, beginner-friendly resources to help folk get started identifying wildflowers. Specifically, the North East’s wildflowers. While you may spot some species not found up here just yet, in many cases, it may only be a matter of time.

Oh, and a huge thank you to the wonderful website that is Saxifraga which makes high-quality wildlife pictures available for non-commercial use. Perfect for projects just like this!
