Flower looking is a popular activity that brings people from all over the United States to Tennessee each spring. In the Smoky Mountain National Forest alone there are 1,500 different varieties of flowering plants. For this reason the park is often referred to as “Wildflower National Park”. To add to the splendor of the national park because of the large variety of flowers being 1,500 it is also the largest variety out of all of the other North American National Parks.
