For Midwestern home gardeners and naturalists, just for fun!                                                               All my observations, photos, musings etc. on this website are centered on our 10 acres (named Shepherd Glen) in Jackson County Missouri, but I have found that observations (and frustrations) in our area translate pretty well throughout the Midwest.



Ephemerals (aka wildflowers)

I grew up referring to all early native flowering plants, no matter how long they bloomed, as wildflowers. However, recently (at least to me) there has been a movement to call these ephemerals. Definition: ephemeral - lasting [i.e., blooming] for a very short time. [See alonger discussion of this under "What's Happening at the Glen" Tab.]
