Flora of Ontario

Trish has been a member of the Field Botanists of Ontario for more than 15 years and has visited many fascinating and out-of-the way corners of Ontario to see rare wildflowers.

She has assembled a slideshow of some of our rare and locally indigenous species:

  • what are the rarities and why they are found in some locations
  • some are highly specialized and can only be enjoyed in the wild, but many are growable in gardens
  • a survey of places in Southern Ontario to see and photograph or paint the unusual plants and flowers.
    • tallgrass prairie
    • oak savannahs
    • limestone rock specialists
    • other unique habits

There is a lot more than trilliums!

To have Trish give a presentation on where to see the rare and unusual wild flowers to your garden club or community group, please email her at botanical_art@pathcom.com
