Watch the Wildflowers Appear!

Most wildflowers begin to bloom in Minnesota in May, starting in the southern and western part of the state and spreading their way north across the prairies and forest floors.

Many state parks schedule special events to help visitors find and identify the many varieties of wildflowers that can be found in Minnesota.
