Wildflowers is the second solo album by American musician Tom Petty, first released in November 1994 (see 1994 in music). The album was the first released by Petty after signing a contract with label Warner Bros. Records, and the first of three albums produced by acclaimed producer Rick Rubin.
Wildflowers was a 1967 album by Judy Collins that included her hit version of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now". The album was arranged by Joshua Rifkin and produced by Mark Abramson. Collins' recording "Albatross" was used in the 1968 film adaptation of The Subject Was Roses.
"Wildflowers" was a song written by Dolly Parton, which was included on Parton's 1987 album Trio with Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt. In the song, Parton talks about being restless and wanting to branch out, using wildflowers as a metaphor, concluding that "wildflowers don't care where they grow". The original recording featured an autoharp, acoustic guitar (played by Harris) and fiddle, and was arranged to sound like an old fashioned country waltz.
