Can you name this flower?

Hint 1

The "springing" refers to these plants blooming in spring

Hint 2

The horrible musician line could be subjective, since people seem to like this musician. However, this musician definitely has an ego

  • $\begingroup$ I feel the question is a little broad. Because any spring flower you look at, you can find some connection between the flower and each line of the question. I think we need a hint to narrow down the options. $\endgroup$ – nikki Aug 26 '18 at 8:15
  • $\begingroup$ This hint may sound lazy, but the plant's name begins and ends with an A $\endgroup$ – Xavier Stanton Aug 26 '18 at 8:24

Is the flower

Azalea?

We love springing forward once the time to blossom's right;

Azaleas bloom in spring, their flowers often lasting several weeks.

A Brazilian in specific areas may symbolize me right.

The azalea is one of the symbols of the city of São Paulo, in Brazil.

In the Far East I have types as to California trees;

Sadly a horrible musician has brought my botany to its knees.

Iggy Azalea. Never heard of her but there is an article about "How Did Iggy Azalea Become the World's Most Hated Pop Star?".

Are these

Cherry Blossoms?

We love springing forward once the time to blossom's right;

They blossom around February-April, right around when spring forward (Daylight Savings Time) comes into effect.

A Brazilian in specific areas may symbolize me right.

There is a huge Japanese community in Sao Paulo, Brazil; as well as in Parana state, Brazil; both of these regions feature cherry blossoms brought by Japanese immigrants.

In the Far East I have types as to California trees;

They're very popular in the Far East, especially Japan - similar to the sequoia tree's popularity in California.

Sadly a horrible musician has brought my botany to its knees.

There are a couple of songs entitled Cherry Blossoms which have been ...less than well received when I Googled it.
