Ricky Hanson Wildflowers


Ricky Hanson wildflowers of Florida.

the work of Craig N. Huegel, PhD. I am an environmental consultant and educator who loves plants. Though formally educated as a wildlife biologist, I am an enthusiastic gardener and have studied and worked with plants my entire life. I currently teach in the Baccalaureate Biology Program at St. Petersburg College, teaching Plant Biology, Field Botany, Conservation Biology, Ornithology, Vertebrate Zoology, and Wildlife Techniques. I have written five books on Florida native plants – the most recent three with the University of Florida Press and I lecture throughout the state on a variety of topics related to plants and wildlife. My wife and I use our Pinellas County landscape as a laboratory to evaluate native plants and we grow a wide variety of species (mostly wildflowers) that are not commonly propagated elsewhere.in order to give us hands-on experience. Hawthorn Hill is not a retail plant nursery, but twice a year, we open our yard to public tours and we make our extra plants available to the public. If you are interested in what we are currently growing.
