The Weird and Wonderful World of Wildflowers

From ingenious ways to trap a meal to bizarre methods of attracting pollinators – the world of wildflowers is full of surprises. Wildflowers have evolved adaptions and relationships to survive and thrive in many different habitats. Join us as we take a look at some of the weird and wonderful plant species that contribute to the diverse flora of the UK.
