PLANTS WHICH BLOOM AT DIFFERENT SEASONS

     Not all flowering plants bloom at the same time.  When a flower blooms affects what pollinators are available to pollinate it and what other flowers are competing for the same pollinators.  Some flowering plants bloom over a long interval while others bloom for only a short time each year.  The following images are of flowers which only bloom at certain parts of the year.
