From the beginning of the spring to the end of the warm season, wildflowers provide nature with a brilliant display of color. As plants, wildflowers are also food for insects and other wildlife such as rabbits and white-tailed deer. Nectar produced by the flower is food for bees, butterflies, and ruby-throated hummingbirds. Commonly found wildflowers include the fire pink, blue phlox, potato dandelion, spring beauty, cardinal flower, and black-eyed Susan.
