There’s nothing like a drive through Door County in its season of rejuvenation. While we can’t be certain exactly when Door County’s blossoms will arrive, the chart below gives you a pretty good idea of what you can expect to see on your spring visits to the county. Check back often for updates as conditions change, or follow us on Facebook for photos and updates.
But the colors of spring aren’t relegated to our orchards. They can be found on the forest floor, in the fields, and in treetops weeks before.
In April and early May you’ll find Hepatica, Daffodils, Dwarf Lake Iris, Large-Flowered Trillium, and other wildflowers splash color on roadsides and gardens up and down the peninsula and Washington Island.
The blossom season continues into June as temperatures warm. Our most famous apple and cherry blossoms are usually gone by this time, but the landscape grows lush green and colored with Blue-Flag Wild Iris, Indian Paintbrush, Red-Osier Dogwood, and Thimbleberry blossoms.
In July lavender lovers will want to trek to Washington Island to see fields of lavender and check out the All Things Lavender Festival.
Cherry blossoms are usually expected to bloom from mid-to-late May. Check out our Everything Cherries page for the latest cherry blossom and picking updates, guides, and helpful blogs about cherry experiences in Door County.
