More than 1,500 species of flowers and plants can be found in the Smoky Mountains, a diversity unlike anywhere else in the world. Known as the “Wildflower National Park,” the Smokies are lit up with color from early spring to late fall. This wildflower season, guests of the Smoky Mountains can enjoy exploring the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and even have their own wildflower scavenger hunt.
To take a wildflower adventure, below are the names of some of the common springtime blooms in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Crested Dwarf Iris
False Solomon’s Seal
Queen Anne’s Lace
Turk’s Cap Lily
Since guests of the National Park are asked not to disturb the wildlife and foliage in an effort to conserve the park, it’s a good idea to bring along a camera to capture pictures of the flowers on the scavenger hunt. If you’d rather spend more time exploring attractions and events, there are plenty of exciting things planned in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, including a wine festival and Mountain QuiltFest.
