Wildflowers and other plants of Minnesota & Wisconsin

As a result of its varied habitat, Minnesota is home to several different species of wild flowers associated with the mixed evergreen and hardwood boreal forest of Canada, the tall grass prairies of the western plains, the agricultural lands, the swamps and bogs, the calcareous fens, and the hardwood forests of the Midwest.
