On Sunday, October 16, a dedicated group of community volunteers gathered for an ambitious wildflower planting project along Coastal Highway 98. They completed nine miles sowing wildflower seed between the Crawfordville Highway (319) and Spring Creek Highway to help beautify Wakulla County.
The seeds were obtained through a grant from the Florida Wildflower Foundation and other generous donations from local businesses, organizations and individuals.
Most of the seeds to be planted are a mixture of 16 plants. The native bloomers include Coreopsis basalis (dye flower or goldenmane tickseed), Liatris (blazing star or gay feather), Solidago (golden rod) and native grasses.
