NORTH ALABAMA / SOUTH-CENTRAL TENNESSEE

FLOWERING TIMES

 

This website contains data on the flowering times for over 950 plants that occur in the northern half of Alabama and south-central Tennessee.  All data is based on personal records from photographs and field notes, as well as limited use of field notes from other reliable individuals.  There are plants and areas that are underrepresented. For example, much of the information is from older photographs taken before field notes were recorded.  Thus, only certain plants on a specific date may have been recorded.  Some plants are extremely difficult to identify and were not recorded in the field notes.  Likewise, some plants may be incorrectly recorded, especially if they are difficult to distinguish from other plants in the same genus.  Furthermore, some sites have been visited only once, while others have been visited over a dozen times.  The Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS) website has been used to establish current scientific names.   If you wish to comment on the accuracy of information or would like to contribute information to this database, please contact Brian Finzel.

The counties covered are highlighted in the state maps below.  Click on any location's link to see a full listing of the family, scientific name, common name, and flowering dates for a particular location.  Also, the Monte Sano State Park link has further links to lists for particular trails and locations within the park.
