The Meadow Wildflowers of ThunderCroft

With over 2,000 identified species of plants in this mountainous region, it is easy to see why we are proud of our efforts to restoreour open meadow and mixed use forests to their natural native fauna.  We actively coordinate with the US Department of Forestry in conducting scheduled controlled burns which help reduce non-native plant populations.  In turn, we actively seed our open meadows and Savannah Cut forests with native plants specific to the region.  Below is a list of some of our most popular specimens.


Helianthus maximiliani, "Maximilian Sunflower"
