The most flowery month in New Zealand is September, which is the peak of spring blooming season. The South Island is noted for floral abundance. There are several hotspots where one may see various hues of white and pink blossoms. Christchurch is famous for its Botanic Gardens and Hagley Park full of azaleas, rhododendrons, magnolias and cherry blossoms. Thriving Alexandra invites for blossom festival every last week of September. The other highlights include Ashburton Gardens, Oamaru Gardens and others. Although New Zealand's nature flowers starting from mid-August through early October, the second half of September is known to be the most rewarding.
