Wild flowers of Skopelos

In an ideal environment…

Skopelos is home to several species of wild flowers, a few of them endemic. Visitors who are interested in plants will be amazed by the abundant variety of different shrubs and flowers (freesias, orchids, poppies, irises, lilies and more) grown here.

  • Springtime offers travellers lower prices, empty beaches, less people, and wildflowers as the island awakes from winter. If you’ve ever considered a spur-of-the-moment trip to Skopelos, do it now. Throughout April and into May, spring wildflowers will be in bloom, brightening the whole island.
  • In early summer the spring anemones, orchids and rock roses are replaced by plants like brooms and chrysanthemums, and Autumn brings wild cyclamen and winter crocus.
