Canadian Wildflowers, Growing in the Whistler Area

What is the big deal about wildflowers?

Wildflowers add so much to our lives and our planet. Not much needs to be said for the visual joy they bring, but they are very important when it comes to pollination and the balance of nature in our lives.

Some of the Canadian wildflowers we came across the short time while in Canada are shown here in this article. I hope you enjoy taking a little stroll with me, as if along the same path I was when I found these beautiful flowers. I wish you could see the gorgeous setting they were in growing in and among the trees and shrubs.

This hub is an attempt to capture what I could in a short amount of time one summer. Surely, there are many more flowers at different points in the summer. I was able to narrow my photos down to 23 that I wanted to share here, but there were many more taken. I can't seem to help myself when I am out enjoying nature, and have my camera with me.

Many of these beauties were found along a little stream, which you can see in at least one of the photos toward the bottom. There was a beautiful little walk one could take and while there was a lot of shade, I still managed to find enough sunny spots where these flowers were happily growing. These flowers can handle full sun, shade, and partially shady conditions.

Wildflowers such as these in the photos, have shown themselves to be pretty tough survivors. They seem to keep going strong and putting out more seeds for the next set of blooms in the next year. This location has many surrounding mountains which still had enough snow on their tops to allow for people to snow ski in the summer.

I have noticed that at the point when the flowers initially begin to bloom in a location like this, that the very first ones seem to immediately begin to get their visits from the local pollinators like bees. In other words, they are incredibly important and serve a huge purpose in life and nature. This goes without saying, but is so neat to observe all the same.

One thing to note, I am not positive of the names of all of these flowers. I am in an ongoing search to label such wildflowers from different areas I have visited. It may just be that you might know some of the names of these flowers. If you do, and care to share that, I would be most grateful. I have numbered the photos for easy reference.

Without these amazing flowers, our lives wouldn't be complete, they are such a needed part. Many do not realize just how significant it is to have all the plants, trees and flowers that we do. Let us not forget the faithful pollinators of all these beauties! I think its something to celebrate for sure. My plan is to update as I learn more about these. In the meantime, there is no need to keep them hidden.

Some of the flowers I have identified so far on this page, are Western Goats beard, Lupine, English daisy, pink clover, and trefoil creeper.

The beauty I find in nature, truly warms my heart. I hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
