February Wildflowers in North Florida

The calendar said February but the flowers said spring!

As we wandered along the trails of Silver Springs State Park and O’Leno State park in north Florida this February, wildflowers added a pop of color to the lush green forest around us.

      1. I looked online at Florida wildflowers, but the only flower that comes close to the red one is called cardinal flower. The picture you took looks like maybe they hadn’t opened up all the way.
