Plate sales

The Florida State Wildflower specialty license plate has been available since 2000. It is the only consistent source of funding for Florida’s native wildflowers and plants. The $15 donation collected with each sale has provided an average of $215,000 annually for native wildflower research, planting and education throughout the state.

The plate is one of more than 120 specialty license plates available in Florida. Other plates represent universities and colleges, professional sports teams, and environmental and social concerns and causes. Each funds important programs that may not have existed without the support of those purchasing the plates.

Despite competition, the State Wildflower plate’s beauty and mission have consistently made it one of Florida’s most popular specialty plates.
