Cape Cod Mayflowers

The most celebrated flower of Cape Cod and Plymouth is the little mayflower.

Sometimes mayflowers are picked as early as the first week in April. However, blooms somewhat later are the rule. The mayflower grows in many other parts of New England. In fact, several plants bear the same name, as well as their more specific names, such as the hawthorn, the marsh marigold, the cuckoo-flower, the greater stichwort, even the calla lily.

Our Cape Cod mayflower is characterized by long, hairy leaves and small fragrant pink or white flowers. Our mayflower is also the familiar trailing arbutus, by which name it is known in other parts of the country. It grows in rocky or sandy soil, shaded by woods.
