Bluebells, trillium, pink lady slippers, marsh marigold and many more native spring wildflowers are blooming. Welcome to the plethora of wildflowers in Maryland State Parks in May. This month is quite literally an explosion of sights, sounds, smells, and, of course, colors.
Wildflowers certainly provide beautiful scenery for our visitors, but this amazing color show has other important functions as well. Many pollinators choose their food based on flower color or shape. Several hummingbird species prefer red cone-shaped flowers for example, while abundant flowers such as marsh marigolds provide a food source for many butterflies, bees and even ants.
So be sure to join nature's pollinators as they dine. Take a photo, draw a picture, write a poem, or join one of our many wildflower hikes across the state. Whatever you decide to do, you are sure to be in for a spectacular view in a Maryland State Park.
