Habitat

A meadow is an habitat where grasses and wildflowers grow in an open area in full sun.  The wildflowers are at their best in summer and fall.

Meadows can be wet or dry.  The most important factor affecting plant growth in the meadow is sunlight.  Grasses and wildflowers that thrive in a meadow require almost a full day of sunlight.

Meadow plants depend on each other. Tall plants depend on lower-growing plants for support, because there is little protection against winds that blow across a meadow.

Illustrated here are some meadows located on the Burwash property, photographed at different time during the spring, summer and fall seasons.

In the Sudbury area, the wildflower meadows peak in colour during the last 2 weeks of June.
