Wildflowers found in St. Lawrence County, northern New York. The majority of those wildflowers are easily found in the Town of Canton. I've only listed the few when I've had a camera with me when I found them. Without a field guide in my pocket I'm pretty dependent on a good photo so I can later identify the suspect. I'm usually out trapping wild rocks to domesticate but I've also brought back to the garden many of the willdflowers I've found on my or friends property.

Remember it is probably illegal to dig up something you find in the wild even if it's on the right-of-way of a road. There are property rights to remember and there are restrictions / protections for some plants such as Trillium and Lady Slippers. And not least of all is the fact that many are specific about their growing conditions. Transplanting some wildflowers is a death sentence for them. Either they can't take the shock or can't adapt to where they're moved to.

If you do transplant any I suggest removing enough soil so the root system really doesn't know it's been disturbed. It might be heavier and harder but there will be little transplant shock and you will be bringing home a good amount of the plants 'native' soil.
