All of these flowers are early bloomers.

Solution

There are flowers that bloom very early in the year. Blooming is when a flower's PETALS grow. Flowers that bloom early in the year are called EARLY BLOOMERS. These flowers can bloom when there is still snow on the ground! These flowers bloom early so they can catch the light from the forest floor. Once the LEAVES on the trees have grown, the light is blocked, and flowers on the forest floor can no longer bloom. Early bloomers are very important to BEES and other insects, who use the NECTAR AND POLLEN from the flowers as food.
