Our definition of a wildflower is a flowering plant, up to one metre tall.
Habitat Value: Level 1
Able to grow in soil or in pots, wildflowers are very decorative and versatile. However, to achieve significant ReWild habitat value, you would need a substantial amount of space.
All potted plants require additional care, as soil nutrients need to be replenished externally, but this is easily done with advice from your nursery.
Like small plants, the wildflower action is able to be completed multiple times for impressive, colourful combinations.
However, this is a great option for people with upper-storey balconies, as most of the animals that interact with them can fly.
The Level 1 habitat value reflects the modest food and shelter value to wildlife, especially birds, insects and pollinators.
Our wildflowers have coevolved for thousands of years with native bees (which don’t sting), but will obviously attract European bees as well.
Due to the wide variety of wildflowers, there is something suitable for every garden and skill level.
If you’re up for a challenge, make the leap into cultivating some of our unique orchid species.
Wildflowers are planted annually and can make excellent potted specimens, building depth in small gardens or balconies.
