Wildflower is the fifth studio album by American singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow, first released September 27, 2005. Although the album debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200,[10] it received mixed reviews and was not as commercially successful as previous albums, having also peaked at #25 on the UK Album Chart[11] (where all her previous studio albums had been Top 10 successes).

In December 2005, however, the album was nominated for a Best Pop Vocal Album Grammy Award, while Sheryl Crow was nominated for a Best Female Pop Vocal Performance Grammy Award for the song "Good Is Good".

The album was certified platinum in the U.S. in December 2005,[12] and as of January 2008, it had sold 949,000 units (over the counter) there.[13]

A deluxe edition of the CD was also released, which contains an additional DVD featuring acoustic versions of many of the album's tracks, as well as the promotional video for the lead single "Good Is Good".
