NYC Wildflower Week celebrates the more than 53,000 acres of open space and 778 native plants found in the five boroughs. This Tuesday, May 10, curator Uli Lorimer will lead a special tour of the Native Flora Garden highlighting spring ephemerals, native lady's slipper orchids, indigenous azaleas, ferns, and aquatic plants such as golden club (Orontium aquaticum) and blue flag iris (Iris versicolor).

To see the full listing of events across the city celebrating our native plants and to learn more about the 4th Annual NYC Wildflower Week, visit nycwildflowerweek.org.
