TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Things are coming into bloom as spring settles into the area.
"We're right at the peak season of wildflowers, so for the next couple of weeks, if you want to get out and see indiana's wildflowers, now is the time to do it."
Dr. Peter Coppinger is a Biologist at Rose Hulman Institute of Technology. He says the flowers that are popping up are a source of food for some insects.
"These early spring wildflowers are very important for the first pollinators that arrive. So for example, bees and flies."
However, this season hasn't come without some headaches.
"From my records, the wildflowers this year are a little bit behind. Not by much, but one possible reason was because of a cold early spring."
And while the season is a little late, it doesn't mean the colors won't be as vibrant.
"Beautiful little white flowers with petals in the shape of a cross, four petals. We'll also see a number of buttercups as well."
So if you're out and about, let the flowers be, and enjoy the colors of spring.
