A wildflower or wild flower is a flower that grows wild, meaning it was not intentionally seeded or planted.
Over the last century in every industrialised country of the world human activity the excess use of insecticides pesticides the use of chemicals and fertilisers has forced an incalculable number of species to the verge of extinction
Scientists do not refer to wildflowers and generally try to discourage people from using the term preferring to encourage words like native species, (flowers that naturally occur in the area) or introduced species (flowers not naturally occurring in the area).
All over the civilized world there are efforts to encourage the planting of indigenous wildflower species and recovery programs for those recognised as close to extinction.
Wildflowers are a natural habitat for butterflies and other colourful insects, they are closely associated with the world of faeries, pixies and other little people and are therefore often drawn or painted by artists worldwide as a connection with nature and mother earth.
Whatever part of the world you are living we would encourage you to investigate and study the rate of loss of wildflowers in your area and to find ways to encourage and educate our children to cultivate the natural habitat. Loss of wildflowers creates loss of natural habitat for breeding birds butterflies and other insect species, affecting the natural food chain of the countryside.
We seek to encourage wildflower meadows, motorways and roads banked in wildflowers to bring our natural habitat back from the brink of extinction around the world.
