The Wilde Flowers were a popular music group based in the vicinity of Canterbury, England. The group was active between 1964 and 1967 but never released any records during its existence; however it led to the formation of two other groups that became well-known and influential: Soft Machine and Caravan.

Band members included, at various times, Hugh Hopper (bass), Robert Wyatt (drums, vocals), Kevin Ayers (vocals), Graham Flight (vocals), Richard Sinclair (rhythm guitar, vocals), Pye Hastings (guitar, vocals), David Sinclair (keyboards), Richard Coughlan (drums), Dave Lawrence (bass, vocals) and Brian Hopper (lead guitar, alto saxophone, vocals).[1][2]

A compact disc of previously unreleased recordings by the Wilde Flowers was issued in 1994.[3] It is now available from Voiceprint Records (Blueprint BP123CD)
