    .
    I use them interchangeably for the flower, but I spell the latter blossom.

    Hi,
    I’d like to add a little.
    There’s a slight difference when bloom and blossom are verbs:
    David is blooming – he looks healthy and happy (physical look, appearance)
    David is blossoming – he is outgoing and cheerful (character)
    Cheers

    A bloom is an individual growth from a plant. Blossom is either all the blooms you see on a tree (cherry blossom, for example) or an individual bloom in the tree. So, blossom is associated with trees.
