19.05.2022 – Seasons

By | 14/05/2022

There are four very distinct seasons in Estonia. The arrival of each season is signalled by the beautiful flowers that we expect to bloom every year.

Galanthus or snowdrop is a genus of plants in the Amaryllidaceae family. The natural growing area of the snowdrop is from Europe to West Asia, it blooms in early spring and symbolises a clean and hopeful spring.

The corn chamomile (A. arvensis) is a plant species belonging to the genus Anthemis in the aster family. The corn chamomile is often confused with the ox-eye daisy. The corn chamomile grows as a shrub with many stems, but the ox-eye daisy is usually a single plant. In addition, the corn chamomile has a higher number of capitula because they are smaller.

Aster (Aster L.) is a genus of herbaceous plants belonging to the order Asterales in the family Asteraceae. The name Aster comes from the Ancient Greek word ?st??, which means ‘star’ and refers to the shape of its inflorescence. Some asters bloom for a long time and are one of the last blooming flowers in autumn.

The snowberry (Symphoricarpos) is a genus of plants in the honeysuckle family. The plant grows as an ornamental shrub in gardens and parks in Estonia. Its beautiful white berries ripen in the fall and last well into winter.
