The plants found in Winnipeg are a result of the geography of Winnipeg. The species naturally occuring here are those of the prairies, the river bottom forests, upland forests and wetlands. They range in size from the tiny floating duckweed to the giant cottonwood and elm trees. The wildflowers and grasses of our prairies and meadows represent one of the most diverse and colourful plant communities in Canada. As this site develops we will expand this section on plants to provide more information about individual species.

The Living Prairie Museum also has information about plant species, seeds available and wildflower books.
