Many mountain visitors find the spring color just as exciting as the fall color. From March to June each year wildflowers and domestic gardens bloom with every color, size and shape. April abounds with the cheerful yellow of daffodils and lady Slippers; the white and pink dogwoods scattered on mountainsides, yards and along roadways; the bright pinks of the redbuds and azaleas and the purple of phaceliat.

The Buncombe TDA ( publishes a weekly "Spring Flower Bloom Schedule",  Each week you can learn where spring blooms are most prevalent in the mountains. Be sure to visit this page weekly for the most current spring updates.
