25 of the Most Beautiful Wildflowers in Georgia

Georgia owes its diversity of wildflowers in part to its range of habitats, from the mountains of the southern Appalachians, down through the hilly piedmont region, into the flat coastal plain, and then finally to the swampy coast. If you visit enough of these places at the right time, it soon becomes apparent that the state contains many beautiful species of wildflowers. This set of 25 photos is a sampling of some of my favorite species from the state of Georgia.
