Ephemeral Wildflowers – Mid April to Mid May

The Dwarf Trout Lilly is an ephemeral wild flower found only in the world in three counties in Minnesota. Nerstrand State Park is a site where they can be seen. The Dwarf Trout Lilly and other ephemeral can be seen for about 4 weeks in spring but the dates are determined by the weather. The Friends of Nerstrand State Park provide ambassadors to point out and explain the wild flowers on the weekends when the flowers are blooming. Please check the park web site for the dates when the flowers can be seen.
