Grants of up to $3,000 to Florida botanical gardens, parks, and nature centers to plant new or expand existing native wildflower gardens and meadows in highly visible locations with public access. Funding is intended to raise awareness of the benefits and beauty of the State's native wildflowers in cultivated landscapes. Projects must have strong educational components.

Grants provide funds with which to purchase Florida native wildflowers and plants for public projects that showcase the beauty of Florida’s native wildflowers while demonstrating their varied uses.The benefits of native wildflowers are becoming increasingly known, yet no mainstream channel in the state adequately demonstrates the link between native wildflowers and the history and culture of La Florida, “land of flowers,” while educating the general public about native wildflowers’ role in supporting native crop pollinators, decreasing air and water pollution, providing wildlife habitat, and in general, creating a better environment for all Floridians.

Grantees must use at least eighty percent of the grant funds to purchase herbaceous Florida native wildflower plants from members of the Florida Association of Native Nurseries and/or the Florida Wildflower Growers Cooperative.
