Christian Friedrich Heinrich Wimmer (October 30, 1803 – March 12, 1868) was a German botanist and educator who was a native of Breslau.

He worked as a Schulrat (education official) in Breslau, and was the author of several publications on Silesian flora. He specialized in the study of the willow genus Salix. The plant genus Wimmeria within the family Celastraceae is named after him.

In 1866, Wimmer published an edition on the ancient Greek naturalist Theophrastus, titled Theophrasti Eresii Opera quae supersunt omnia.
