Wildflower Calendar

NC_road_flowers.jpgThe mountains have a variety of slopes and conditions, including pockets of specialized habitats. You can enjoy North Carolina wildflowers almost anytime of the year.


Some flowers bloom all year, but spring is when the blossoming is at its peak. Wildflower lovers flock to our state in numbers similar to those who visit the area for fall foliage.


Anemone, bishop's cap, bloodroot, chickweed, early meadow rue, hepatica, spring beauty, toothwort, wake-robin and violets appear in early April.


By mid-April, you'll find bleeding hearts, white trillium, Dutchman's breeches, flowering dogwood, wild geranium, fringed polygala, crested dwarf iris, May apple, Solomon's seal and trout lily, all of which appear on the park's Blooming Report.

In June and July, flame azaleas and Catawba rhododendron bloom, and there are berries throughout the park. In August and September, the flowers include asters, goldenrods, sunflowers, Turk's cap lily, ironweed, cardinal flower, jewelweed and turtlehead.
