Wild Wednesday is a Daily Plant feature on Garden Maine that showcases a plant found in the wild in Maine. We collaborate with Glen Mittelhauser of the Maine Natural History Observatory. Glen is in the midst of compiling a book about the flora of Baxter State Park and has completed one on Acadia National Park.

This list will be updated frequently as we add more wild plants. Click on the name of a plant to read more about it. Hover over the name and you will see the title of the post. How could you resist one about a hot dog?
