Throughout the State of Arkansas, approximately 1,000 miles of Highways have been included in a system of Wildflower Routes to showcase existing wildflower populations. Maintenance practices along these routes allow annual and perennial wildflowers to prosper and return year after year.

Operation Wildflower establishes new roadside wildflower populations with seed donated by a sponsor. Wildflower populations may be established along interstates and primary highways with wide rights-of-way because of their potential for showy displays in the large planting area they offer. Planting sites are limited by safety restrictions, site accessibility, chemical and physical soil characteristics, and the availability of seed.

Wildflower Sign Program
The Wildflower Sign Program increases public awareness of the AHTD Wildflower Program by providing signs identifying wildflower areas sponsored by local clubs, groups, and businesses.
