Six Months of Flowers

Eighteen wildflowers from forests, fields, and wetlands, arranged by when they first bloom. Wildflower season in the northern forest begins in April and continues until the last weeds fruit in late fall. Over the six months of active blooming, more than 1,200 species of herbs and flowering trees and shrubs will flower.

The April and May flowers are in woodlands and meadows. The roadside and wetland flowers start in June. July and August are our peak, with flowers everywhere. In September and October the woods bloom again, and the last fruits develop. November brings frost and colors; December, subsidence, returning, and rest.
