Page 2 - Wildflowers of Northern New Jersey
Although all of the flowers on this page were photographed in northern NJ, most of these flowers' range can be found in the northeastern United States (US / USA).
The identification photos are organized by family. Photos start lower on page.

This page is constantly being updated with flower photos. The majority of NEW flower species that will be added will be spring through fall. Thank you for your patience, and if we don't have a specific species, check back later.

Please contact Rachel L. Garris with any questions that you may have at rachelgarris95@gmail.com.
