April Flowers in SW Georgia


Wild violets

Blackberries blooming along all the fence lines.

Redbud trees - first bloomers normally. This year everything popped into bloom at once.

Iris - mostly white and yellow ones in bloom now.

Yellow weeds cover the field where peanuts or cotton or corn will be planted soon.

Wisteria drips off trees everywhere. The stunning flowers have such a sweet smell that the air is full of it everywhere.

Dianthus - blooms all winter, but especially pretty first thing in the spring.

Creeping phlox.



  1. Wow. You do get everything at once. We've been blooming here for a month, but everything in stages, just all earlier this year.

  2. Every early spring bloom is late down here due to our "El Nino" winter. There is usually something blooming all year long. The pansies and daffodils and tulips started in January. There are still some cameleas blooming also, and the roses all have buds.
