NYC Wildflower Week celebrates its 5th anniversary this year. There will be over thirty free events on offer, open to the public, and spread across all five boroughs of the city. Related nature study, including regional animal species, will be on the program as well. A full listing of events can be found by following this link:

New York City possesses 53,000 acres of open space and 778 native plant species (plus numerous flowering immigrants, many of which are featured here at WWV), so take some time to explore the urban outdoors and enjoy May’s wildflowers.

You never know where a city wildflower may grow: Water Parsnip (Sium suave) blooms beside a tree between 8th and 9th Avenues. (photo taken 05 12 2012)
