In my dictionary I see for flower the Swedish words blomma and blomster. Are these synonyms or is there a difference in meaning (or style) between these words. I see that in Danish there is only blomst.

    For me, "blomma" is the standard word while "blomster" hardly ever occurs by itself, only in compounds like "blomsteräng" (a flowering meadow) or midsommarblomster (the species Geranium sylvaticum).
