Northwest Ohio Wildflowers

In Northwest Ohio wildflowers range from the very common species to some very rare and unusual species. There are many species here 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.

Wildflower Pictures and Identification Galleries


The wildflower galleries are set up to help you identify the different flowers you are likely to see in and around Northwest Ohio, and other parts of the state. There are hundreds of different Ohio wildflowers on the following pages.

Since there are too many wildflower pictures to put on one page, the galleries are broken down and grouped by color. The galleries also specify which Ohio wildflowers are native, non-native, and/or invasive.
