The purpose of the Alabama Wildflower Society is to enjoy the fellowship of shared interest in native plants and to promote the knowledge, appreciation, and use of native plants. We strive to preserve areas of significant interest because of their native flora. To promote interest in young people in this endeavor, we give several scholarships each year to deserving students.
Our spring 2010 meeting in Tennessee's Cherokee National Forest was a blast! We saw a gorgeous waterfall, Trailing Arbutus, Trilliums, Bluebells, and lots of smiling faces.
Trilliums are one of Alabama's many floral treasures. The beautiful Trillium luteum was one of the highlights from our 2010 trek in Cherokee National Forest.
Our fall 2010 meeting was in Bankhead National Forest. The river scenery was spectacular and the Soapwort Gentian was still in bloom!
