Illustrated on this page are some native northern Ontario wildflowers that occur in meadows.

Meadows are characterized by a mix of grasses and wildflowers. The soil in this area consists of sandy loam - sand, clay, and organic material.

The meadows receive lots of sun and are open sites with good air circulation. They are hot and become dry when rain is infrequent.

Wildflowers adapt by having deep tap roots, both to compete with the grasses and to access water during periods of drought. The matting, tight-knit roots of the grasses, in combination with the deep roots of the wildflowers, combined to help keep weedy plants to a minimum.

Both alien and native wildflowers are illustrated.

Alien wildflowers were introduced to North America from some other continent, such as Europe or Asia.
