12 Jan Which Country has the Most Beautiful Flowers?
As a fan of beautiful flowers and garden tourism, I have wondered which place in the world has cultivated the most astonishing variants of flora around. From delicate orchids to vibrant tulips, plants over the planet in a massive splash of colors and sizes. If you’re interested in seeing wonderful flower fields no matter the season, check out these flora abundant locations.
Jabal Akhdar, Oman – Roses
Located 6,500 feet above sea level, the Alila Jabal Akhdar mountains gives host to a brilliant and large hotel that offers you the perfect view of pink roses that bloom between March and May every year. The mountainscape is abounded with vibrant colors and smells. If you get close enough, you can have these beautiful roses sprinkle all around you as the wind blows.
A spa located near these flowers also uses petals in their health and wellness treatments. A paradise of these pedals marks the Jabal Akhdar harvest, and the locals take full advantage of it.
You can purchase a rose bouquet from closer to home of course for your loved ones, or you can ask the hotel staff to use rose petals in your bath.
Tokyo, Japan – Sakura or Cherry Blossoms
In the heart of Tokyo lies rows and rows of sakura (cherry blossom) trees that bloom from late-March to mid-April. What makes this site so unique is its short blooming and falling off period, but these bulbs make you feel like you’re in a romantic anime or novel. Sakura trees are the most iconic flower next to roses and are often attributed as a must-see for tourists.
Lisse, Netherlands – Tulips
Although the Netherlands has a reputation for these brilliant and multi-colored bulbed flowers, the tulip, they actually originate from Central Asia. Through trading, the Netherlands adopted this flower and started planting them throughout the country. They’re so famously attributed to the Netherlands that the tulip is often given as a gift to other countries as a form of appreciation.
The Keukenhof garden located in Holland is one of the largest flower gardens in the world, with about 7 million flowers in the park, mostly made up of multi-colored tulips. If you want to see these flowers in their full splendor, the bulbs will peak in April and May during the spring season. There is even a famous road trip flower route through the Netherlands you can visit.
Madrid and Surrounding Area, Spain – Peonies
Spain has plenty of flowers that will delight the eyes and nose, full of incredible colors and sizes. Since Spain is warm for the majority of the year, you have an ample amount of time to witness peonies, marigolds, and pimpernels. There are over 30 types of orchids within Spain, including woodcocks, the naked man, and the somber bee.
Swiss Alps, Switzerland – WildFlowers
The alpine region of Switzerland represents a major natural feature of the country and cuts its way through most of its borders. The alps are home to many natural sights, including crystal clear rivers, which help to produce the most beautiful wildflowers you can find. If you decide to take a hike around this natural resource, you won’t be disappointed.
Nothing will grow during the winter, but if you want to witness incredible flowers that hug close to the ground, visit in the summer. You’ll find pale and pink primrose, the edelweiss and Christmas rose, gentians and bellflowers. Finding a red flower, like a tulip or a rose, is a rare and fantastic sight, so if you see one, be sure to take a picture; don’t disturb the flowers by picking them!
