Apricot flowers bloom in spring. Apricot flowers usually bloom between March and April every year, that is, around February of the lunar calendar. However, the specific flowering time is uncertain due to different cultivation areas and breeding environment. The flowering period of a single flower is very short, only about a week, and the flowering period of the whole plant can last about 20-30 days.
Apricot flower is native to China and widely distributed in East and Central Asia. It can be planted in front of the court, at the corner of the wall, beside the road and by the water. It can also be planted in groups or on the hillside and by the water. The apricot flower is solitary, the first leaves open, and the petals are white or slightly red.
Apricot flower is an ancient flower and tree. It has been recorded in Guanzi published hundreds of years ago. Therefore, it has been cultivated in China for at least two or three thousand years. It can not only harvest fruits but also enjoy flowers. It plays an important role in fruit and tree production and urban beautification.
