History: 

The daughter colony of Blumenfeld was founded along the banks of the Belaya Kuba River in 1860 [Klaus cites the founding year as 1861] by Lutheran colonists resettling from Galka, Shcherbakovka, Kraft, Dreispitz, and Holstein.       

After the 1941 deportation of the Volga Germans, the settlement was renamed Tsvetochnoye and that is the name by which it is known today.

Church: 

The Lutheran congregation located in Blumenfeld was part of the parishes headquartered in Morgentau and Gnadentau. Over the years, there were also Seventh Day Adventists living in the colony.
