A wildflower, by definition, is a flower that grows in the wild, meaning it was not intentionally seeded or planted. In spring and summer seasons, we can look forward to the earth showing off its vibrant colors when wildflowers break the soil and climb up toward the sun, showing off their impressive petals and stems. Wildflowers are exciting, giving us something to look forward to when the sun begins to work its magic. Just like colorful home decor or accessories, wildflowers are Mother Nature’s natural pops of personality and color.

Every flower color from a bright yellow to a deep red offers a rich and meaningful story, and nearly every sentiment imaginable can be expressed with flowers. In your home, using color can create the same effect, sparking joy or motivation simply from it’s vibrancy. Using color in your kitchen inspired by the wildflowers outdoors can help you bring the purity of nature into your home, nourishing you naturally with organic color therapy.

1.) Butterfly Milkweed (Asclepias tuberosa)

Found throughout the U.S., this eye-catching orange wildflower is a favorite of the monarch butterfly. The butterfly milkweed is full of toxins and doesn’t want to be eaten, secreting a thick latex that gums up the mouthparts of the monarch larvae. To counteract this, monarch larvae cut notches in the leaves to slow the flow of latex while they eat, resulting in a delicate balance of nature that allows both to survive.

These orange wildflowers are bright and bold, highlighting the playful and vivid colors of the natural world. Orange flowers are known to symbolize feelings of excitement and enthusiasm, and the color orange can bring the same positive feelings to your home when used in decoration. In your kitchen, the color orange will bring liveliness and warmth to any space. Pair with neutral colors, like white, tan, or gray, or contrasting cool colors like green or blue.
