Mississippi the Land of Wildflowers

Mississippi the Land of Wildflowers

Last year Mississippi saw a great drought. This year there has been plenty of rain and the beauty of the state has returned. Countryside roads are almost like jungles, full of wildflowers of every color.

Trumpet vines which are native to the area are wrapped around trees offering their flowers to the hummingbirds. There is also a type of old species daylily which fills the roadsides, even though it is not a native flower.

Orange patches can also be found along the roadway — these patches of color come from the native butterfly weed, which monarch butterflies really enjoy.

Queen Anne’s lace is one of the most beautiful flowers to grow in Mississippi, and it is now in season. Black eyed Susans also line the roadsides.
