The Locations of the Most Abundant Amounts of Blue Mountain Flowers in Skyrim

Flowers that are blue.. that sometimes, grow on mountains. But not always.

Flowers that are blue.. that sometimes, grow on mountains. But not always.

Here I hope to list all the best places you could possibly need to know about when hunting down some Blue Mountain Flowers. It is of course true that you can find these flowers relatively easily it can save you a lot of time if you know where they grow in the highest numbers


The good thing about this information is that the game itself that is Skyrim is static and constant. Solid. If this game were not like that, say like an evolving online game, the information would not really be quite so easy to be specific about so it is constant and foolproof in as much as a near perfect reference point that you can certainly rely on to be evergreen.

The reference points I use to guide you to the places I mention are all very easily found upon the map. If you for some reason do not know the names I am using as references points you can go outside of any town and there is a cart that can talk you to all of the major towns. This is something that's wise to do anyway to get the most out of the game early on.

The locations to find the most Blue Mountain Flowers

Blue Mountain Flowers can be found all over the place. You can just walk along most roads and paths and you will find one or two quite often. You can also hang outside of peoples houses and places of business and even villages, towns and cities* and there you can find these flowers - and other plants and flowers. But, if you are looking to find the areas with the highest quantities.. You've come to the right place.
It is also worth mentioning that these flowers along with all other wild grown items will respawn when returning another time. This wont happen with items you steal. Sort of obvious but I thought I would mention it. Just in case.


From now on I will generally use the abbreviation BMF for Blue Mountain Flowers


  • The road from Helgen toward Riverwood - if you take this road - which will probably happen very early on in the game as when you escape the dragon attack this is the only real road to take. Unless of course you go off in a different direction for some obscure reason.

  • It would seem that you can have a lot of luck if you spend time within the northern areas of Skyrim map.

  • If you spend a small amount of time around Boulderfall Cave - not inside and south of the cave - you will find plenty. This can be found to the north of Riften.

  • When heading to Dragon Bridge from Lost Echo Cave or back the other way you will be able to find plenty of BMF. Along the roadside. West of Solitude is where it lies.

  • While in Whiterun - this will most likely be the first town you visit - play close attention to the north part of the town. The Battle-Born Farm being a handy location to find them and north of there.

  • There is a steep road from Helgen which leads up to Fort Neugrad. There is a huge amount of BFM at the side of the path.

  • Goldenglow Estate is an island West of Riften and, if you can find a way up to it out of the water - don't worry there is a way - you will find plenty of BMF.

  • When travelling between Riften and Heartwood Mill you can can find plenty of BMF but be sure you be careful of the clowns - not literally - occupying Faldar's Tooth fort - which is close by - as they can be pretty aggressive and they are quite high in numbers.

  • If you take the long and arduous trip between Helgen and Riften you will find more Blue Mountain Flowers than you can shake a stick at. There will of course be a fair few red circles that you will have to deal with so be sure you pack enough potions and punches to see off all those that wish to do you harm.
