Bloom Chart for 2006

In 2006 we had an early spring because of a mild winter here in the Pacific Northwest. Consequently, the spring flowers bloomed 1 or 2 weeks earlier than usual. This turned around in June and July due to a very cool, wet April and May and then everything seemed to be blooming later than usual. Obviously, blooming times vary from year to year, depending on weather. They will also vary with location; flowers in a sunny spot will bloom before those in partial shade, for example.

In the first list, flowers are in alphabetical order along with the date of the first time I saw them in bloom. The second list is sorted by date. If you are planning a celebration on a specific date, this may be more useful.

note: flowering cherry, tulips, lilies etc. will be blooming for several weeks because of all the different varieties, some early blooming, some late. Otherwise, most flowers will be in bloom for 2 to 3 weeks, depending on weather. The summer flowering plants, like dahlias, zinnias, calendula, rose, sunflower etc. will continue to bloom until frost, once they start. For these, the biggest blooms are on the central stem, the first to bloom. Later blooms will sprout along the sides of the central stem and will generally be smaller.
