Lets meet our most common tree blossoms
Hello! In this tree blossom identification guide, we will introduce you to some of our most common blossoms and tree flowers and learn how to identify them. Are you ready? Let’s get started …
Using our tree blossom identification guide
Tree flowers are a useful way of identifying trees in the spring and summer months – sometimes, even before there are leaves on the trees. So, it is nice to be able to identify them. When trying to identify blossom or other tree flowers, the main features to look for, are:
- Single or clustered
- Petal shape
- Stamen length, number and colour
Remember to use all available clues to help you in identifying your blossom. If you find yourself struggling, think about other distinctive features – like bark, buds or leaves. Sometimes, you might even spot last year’s leaves or berries either on the tree or on the ground below it. Think about the time of year too. Blackthorn is one of our earliest spring blossoms, followed by cherry, sycamore, ash and hawthorn.
