You can find out about native wildflowers in your area through a library, a native plant society, or through area native plant nurseries. Here is one source that gives some info on Toronto wildflowers.

Here is a general article about wildflowers.

The ASPCA website gives a good list of toxic plants for cats but I'm not sure how much of that is native plants. https://www.aspca.org/pet-care/animal-poison-control/toxic-and-non-toxic-plants
