Where to Find Blue Mountain Flower in "Skyrim"

I love giving tips and advice to help people in video games.

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

This article will list the best places to hunt down some Blue Mountain Flower. These flowers are fairly easy to come by, but it can save you a lot of time if you know where they grow in the highest numbers

The reference points I use are easily found on the map. If you do not know the names I am using as references points, you can fast travel with the carriage. This is something that's wise to do to get the most out of the game early on.

The Locations to Find the Most Blue Mountain Flower

Blue Mountain Flower (BMF) can be found all over the place. You can just walk along most roads and paths to find them. You can also hang outside of houses and cities to find these flowers. Below will be some locations where you can find great concentrations of BMF. It is also worth mentioning that these flowers, along with all other wild grown items, will respawn. This won't happen with items you steal. That's sort of obvious, but I thought I should mention it.
