Wildflowers are easy to spot along the river, in mountainside meadows, and in the vast Montana forest. Their color gives them away. Take a break from fishing or hiking to appreciate these perennial bloomers.
Climate and Elevation
Terrain varies considerably in Montana which gives a large variety of flowers. Moisture-loving plants can be found along the river while plants more tolerant of the semi-arid climate can be found in meadows and low-elevation slopes. High elevations produce beautiful alpine flowers.
Best Time For Wildflowers
The spring rains subside in late May and the first blooms begin. The blooms continue through June and peak during the first two weeks of July. More resources can be found the Montana Plant Life website.
