We’ve created a wildflower ID template to help you, and your friends and family, look at wildflowers more closely and to help you begin to build a botanical vocabulary. It’s not intended to be exhaustive, but we hope it will help you pay closer attention to wildflowers and develop the eyes, and nose, of a botanist!
This template assumes that you’re looking at wildflowers in bloom during the summer months, and that’s a very good place to start when you’re learning to identify wildflowers.
Print out some copies, share them around, and work through the template next time you’re out and about.
You’ll soon realise that there’s far more to wildflower identification than just looking at colour!

Once you’ve noted down the details of your unknown specimen, have a look through our wildflower gallery and compare your notes with some of the plants on the list.
