Northwest Ohio Wildflowers

In Northwest Ohio wildflowers range from the very common species to some very rare and unusual species.  Northwest Ohio has many wild flower species that don't grow any where else in Ohio.

The rare ecosystem of the Oak Openings Region is the reason for the many rare wildflowers found here.
