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.
Lists of flowering plants found in parks around the city can be obtained from the Natural Areas in Parks map.
