AC Expressway Wildflowers

Wildflowers are maintained within the roadway median and shoulder areas during the spring, summer and fall. In addition to the beauty, the wildflowers provide other benefits in reducing the need to mow the grass, and less mowing means less use of fossil fuels. ACE's Wildflower areas are seeded with a mix of Cosmos pinks with a scattering of whites and reds.
