Wildflowers

 

Over 200 species of wildflowers have been identified and categorized in the Fredericksburg Nature Center. Wildflowers are herbaceous flowering plants that are native to an area. The importance of wildflowers according to the Native Plant Society of Texas lies in the benefits they offer:

  • Provide food sources (seeds, nectar and fruits for birds, bats, pollinating insects and butterflies)
  • Attract insects for birds to consume
  • Provide habitats for birds, wildlife and larval host plants for butterflies
