April full moon names indicate the sprouting of seed and the
explosion of bright beauty found in the phlox (pink) and other flowers rising
for the spring debut.
This name came from the herb moss pink, or wild ground
phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. Other
names for this month’s celestial body include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon,
the Egg Moon, and among coastal tribes the Full Fish Moon, because this was the
time that the shad swam upstream to spawn.
