Operation Wildflower has brought beauty and diversity to West Virginia highways for many years. Today, more than 250 acres of wildflowers grow on state roads, including sites on every interstate highway.
Bright red Poppies bloom in early spring, followed by deep blue Bachelor's Buttons in late spring and early summer. Mid-summer brings yellow Coreopsis providing color until August, when pink and white Wild Cosmos take over until killed by frost in the fall.
Each year they have a calendar contest. Photos can be submitted for consideration in the annual "Roadsides in Bloom" calendar as published by the Division of Highways and Environmental Protection. Sign up for your free 2019 Roadsides in Bloom Calendar today. Note: They give priority to West Virginia residents.
