Fun Facts

Keep an eye out for the first wildflowers that bloom in late winter/early spring! These flowers are called Spring Ephemerals!


Pictured above is a Trout Lily (Erythronium Americanum) one of the many native wildflowers from our area in Illinois. The purple splotches on its leaves resemble the markings on a Brook Trout, which is where it gets it its name.

The next time you are out for a walk, keep an eye out for some of these delightfully delicate wildflowers and let us know what types of Spring Ephemerals are native in your area!
