Wild flowers in the Azores

Flowers Santa Maria

When is a good time to see wild flowers in the Azores and which of the islands is best?


The wild flowers in the Azores really start blooming in May, so from May until September you can see a wide variety of flowers on all the islands.

The most famous island for flowers is the island of Flores, however no matter which island you are visiting, you will not be disappointed.


  1. I just wanted to thank you for your lovely articles. I am a beekeeper and officer of the local Olympic Peninsula Bee club https://www.nopba.org/ and will be giving some VERY similar presentations on plants/bees and pollinators to our club and the local library. Do check out our club newsletter!

    Makes me wish to move to your islands!!!!
    My own website has some old bee articles you might enjoy – am working on the drafts for the two talks.

    Here is a BAVARIAN petition to give you some hope for positive change. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/environment/2019/02/bavarians-vote-save-bugs-birds-change-farming/

    The last line in the article says it all:
    “We’ve all been standing by and watching for too long, now time is running away from us.”
