Dogwood trees rival the allure of the oaks and moss in the spring, when their buds blossom into crisp white (sometimes red or pink) flowers. The first sight of their flowers is a telling sign that winter is officially over. These trees stand out strikingly from the greens and grays of the other trees in Bluffton.
These are just a handful of the endless amounts of flowers that turn an already beautiful Bluffton into a stunning Bluffton during spring. Other flowers like gardenias, jasmine and wisteria can occasionally be spotted throughout residential areas. So keep your eyes peeled, Bluffton in bloom is an experience you won’t want to miss.
Camellias are another flower that are a symbol of the South. These beauties have a long blooming season. They can be seen in Bluffton as early as fall and early winter, though they come to full bloom by March. The common camellia come in various colors: white, peach, red, pink, etc. They love the rich Southern climate. The camellia seen around Bluffton has delicate, curved petals that spiral from the center and look as thin as tissue.
