This is a blog that celebrates the beauty and diversity of Florida's wildflowers - with a bit of a focus on growing these plants in a home landscape. Some of the wildflowers featured here are grown and sold through Hawthorn Hill Native Wildflower and Rare Plant Nursery. E-mail (Huegelc55@aol.com)or call me (727-422-6583) if there is something you want to see in this blog - or something you wish to purchase.

Twice a year, I open up my yard and offer a plant sale at Hawthorn Hill. Many of you that have expressed an interest in this in the past are on my mailing list and have already received notice and a copy of what I currently have available. If you are interested and wish to have a copy of this Summer's plant list, email me and put "Plant List" in the subject line - firstname.lastname@example.org
I have moved to Holiday, Florida in the past 18 months and this is at my home. The sale hours are 9 am - 1 pm. Because the coronavirus has not gone away, I am asking everyone to wear a mask if you wish to join us. It is about respect for everyone else in attendance as much as it is about you. Right now, I have about 50 species available, but some are in very small numbers.
Almost everything is in 4" pots for $4 each. I find that wildflowers transplant best when in a size like these.
Since my move to Holiday, I have been working hard to convert my typical turf-grass yard into a living landscape. I am writing about this in my other blog: www.werenofences.blogspot.com if you are interested.
Over the next day or two, I will be adding a few wildflowers to this blog that I have inadvertently forgot. Most of them are species I will have for sale.
I also want to thank you all that regularly read this blog. We are nearing 1 million hits since I began and I am amazed by this use. It never dawned on me that it would be this useful when I began writing it.
