I love wild flowers but could not name a one.
I need to hike with Kris Light, editor of the East Tennessee Wildflowers website.
Kris has a big site which includes favourite wildflower hiking destinations, index of names, photo galleries and more.
Don’t be fooled by the name of the website. Kris lists over 1000 different wildflowers, fungi, and “critters” from Alaska, Arizona, California, Florida, Massachusetts, Tennessee and Utah.
Know that timing is everything when it comes to wildflowers.
You need plan your hike for one of the peak weeks of the season. This takes some research.
Check out EastTennesseeWildflowers.com.
