The North Carolina Department of Transportation Wildflower Program began in 1985 as an integral part of highway beautification. Wildflower beds are installed and maintained across the state by Roadside Environmental personnel in each of the fourteen highway divisions. Many of these beds are marked by the wildflower sign pictured above.

This booklet is intended as a reference to identify the wildflowers planted by the North Carolina Department of Transportation as well as some of the naturally occurring ones growing along North Carolina highways. Both botanical and common names are listed on the following pages. Photographs with descriptions and planting information are arranged by color.

Also contained, the installation techniques used by Roadside Environmental personnel. These instructions may vary according to the scale of your wildflower planting. If you are interested in wildflower gardening, the back cover notes how you can receive additional information.

We hope this booklet will be useful as you drive along our highways and in your own wild-flower gardening endeavors. Remember, for your own safety, do not stop and pick the wild-flowers. Please leave them for everyone to enjoy!
