A wildflower also wild flower is a flower that grows wild, meaning it was not intentionally seeded or planted. Wildflower meadows are mostly men made, but in same places Nature provided us with this treat.
The term "wildflower" is found in many languages, for example Germany has the word "Wildblumen". Wildflower are neither a hybrid nor a selected cultivar - it appears in the wild as a native plant.
Scientists do not like the term wildflower and generally try to be more specific - the latin names for our wildflowers are used all over Earth and make it much easier to talk about the same plant species.

Please ask for permission before you copy the photos!

Humans on Earth need better air quality, better water quality, unpolluted healthy rivers + ocean protection. Hurricanes kill animals + humans. Lower pollution with efficient home appliances, less energy waste, less water waste. Nature conservation reduces air pollution, water pollution with recycling, promotes green driving, energy conservation through better energy efficiency. Answers to all pollution environmental issues.

BSB research: Science definition Biodiversity means that every living being looks a little bit different, that babies do not look alike, that we have different plants, different health problemsBiodiversity

BSB recycling facts: Recycling to save resources! All raw materials and all energy are provided by our blue planet Earth, but they are NOT endless. Unfortunately, most of the provided raw materials + energy are not usable as they appear in Nature and are spread globally in deposits. Men need to use a lot of energy + resources to produce the materials we need. We have to collect, clean, concentrate, and transform these resources to generate primary raw materials that are usable for people and industry. Using recycled materials reduces the amount of energy + reduces the amount of materials we have to dig out! Most of all things we use can be recycled!
