Coloring Page: The ABCs of Ohio Plants & Animals | W

We’re giving you some fun coloring activities! Here, you’ll find a fun coloring sheet featuring the ABCs of Ohio’s native flora and fauna.

While it’s called wild blue phlox (Phlox divaricata) the flowers of this Ohio wildflower can range in color from lavender to violet to blue.

Did you know? When wild blue phlox is done flowering, it leaves behind a dark, leafy mound of leaves. This allows it to continue to collect nutrients and sunlight to fuel its next year of growth.

April is Ohio Native Plant Month, a vision dedicated to building public awareness and communicating the importance of native plants in our state. Great Parks is proud to be a partner of this movement.

We’re supporting Ohio Native Plant Month through our 100,000 Tree Challenge. This challenge is in response to the United Nations 2020 International Year of Plant Health to plant 1.2 trillion trees. To recognize this effort, Great Parks will be planting more than 900 native trees this year.
