2014 Peak Bloom Period Prediction: April 8 – 12

Average Peak Bloom Date:  April 4
Exactly when the buds will open is not easy to predict and it is extremely difficult to give an accurate forecast much more than 10 days before peak bloom. National Park Service horticulturists monitor five distinct stages of bud development and provide timely forecasts and updates.
