A native wildflower is defined as a herbaceous perennial or grass which is indigenous to the United Kingdom.

All these plants are non-woody and include what might be more colloquially defined as: herbaceous plants, ferns, grasses, sedges, marginals, aquatics, bulbs, corms, rhizomatous and tuberous plants found growing wild within the United Kingdom.

These plants are sold  as seeds, clump, pot-grown plants/plugs of bulbs/corms and tubers.


Each plant must be specified by giving its full BOTANICAL name.  For full details of the specification terms used in naming plants see TREES.

Although wildflowers are often referred to by their Common Names, it is better to use the Botanical name as well in order to avoid any confusion which may be caused due to the variety of common names given to native wild flowers.
