May is a wonderful time of year in Connecticut, as the long-awaited spring weather
brings beautiful flowers into bloom all across the state. From the coastal towns to the
rolling hills of the countryside, you can find an abundance of colorful and fragrant
blooms that signify the arrival of warmer weather and longer days.
One of the most iconic flowers of May in Connecticut is the state flower, the Mountain
Laurel. This beautiful plant produces stunning pink and white flowers that bloom in late
May and early June, and can be found in the woodlands throughout the state. In fact,
Connecticut has the largest natural growth of Mountain Laurel in the country.
Another popular May flower in Connecticut is the lilac. These fragrant flowers bloom in
shades of purple, pink, and white, and can be found in gardens, parks, and along the
streets of many Connecticut towns. The annual Lilac Festival in Woodstock is a must-
see event for any flower enthusiast.
Other May flowers include tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths. These bulbs were planted in
the fall and have been waiting all winter to burst into bloom with vibrant colors and
sweet fragrances.
So, if you’re in Connecticut in May, be sure to take a stroll through a local park, visit a
flower festival, or simply take in the beauty of the spring flowers blooming all around
you. It’s a magical time of year that’s not to be missed.

Adding live flowers to your living space can do wonders for your well-being! Not
only do they add natural beauty and color, but they also help purify the air,
reduce stress levels, and improve mood. So, go ahead, brighten up your day and your space with some fresh blooms.
