What flowers in Amersterdam May 24-25?

We'll be in Amersterdam May 24 & 25 before our cruise boat travels the 45 +/- mile Amersterdam-Rhine Canal, and then down the Rhine to Basel. This late in the spring what flowers can we expect to see in our travels? THANKS

Roses, probably. Spring flowers will be done and over. Nature is exploding with the warm weather we are having right now and plants bloom and wither rapidly.

Too soon for roses possibly, rhododendrons will possibly still be in bloom, depending on how warm it stays now. I wouldn't expect too see too many flowers - then if you do see some they are a bonus.

Maybe not in Holland but further up the Rhine the roses will start blooming no later than mid-May.
Rhododendrons, yes.
