Blue Ridge Parkway flowers

We are thinking of driving Blue Ridge Parkway 3-4 days beginning from southern entrance.Want to plan best time to enjoy the beauty of blooming flowers. Would you suggest May or June? Traveling with a small dog,which will limit the motels for overnight lodging.

If you are planning on starting in Cherokee and traveling north you will certainly experience a wide altitude range giving you the opportunity to view a lot of blooms. I was in the Cataloochee Valley this past weekend and saw a lot of trilliums beginning, bird foot violets, chickweed, wood sorrel, hipaticus and others so the show is beginning. I know along the way you will be treated to a beautiful floral show despite which mont you choose. Both are good.

By far the most beautiful time on the BRP for flowering plants is form June 10-25th. The rhododenruns, flame azaleas and the mountain laurel will be in full bloom. Go between Cherokee and Asheville for the best viewing. It is quite a show.
