Fun Facts about Springtime and Spring Flowers
This year the first day of spring is March 19th, but the flowers certainly don’t know that. They can, however, sense the lengthening days and warming temperatures. This is how they know exactly when it’s time to resume their growth phase and start blooming.
Bright and Cheery
In the United States, we officially begin spring on the vernal equinox, but people in other parts of the world use different systems, like the lunar calendar, to track the changing seasons. In Japan, people wait for the flowers to let them know when spring has sprung. They don’t officially begin the season until their national flowers, the cherry blossoms, have started blooming.
When Do Flowers Bloom in Spring?
The first flowers of the year don’t actually wait for spring. Even in cold climates flowers like snowdrops, crocuses, and Lenten roses will push through the snow to bloom as early as late January!
True spring flowers wait until around the end of March to bloom. Among the first are tulips, irises, daffodils, pansies, and hyacinths. Some flowers need more sunshine and time to develop before they’re ready to flower. Roses, lilacs, peonies, daisies, and bluebells don’t bloom until May and June.
Seven Superb Flowers for Celebrating Spring
With so many gorgeous flowers blooming in spring, it’s not easy to pick just a few favorites. These blossoms made our list for their incredible looks, sweet fragrances, and special symbolic meanings.
These blooms are so beautiful that they’re actually symbols of attractiveness and charm. They have seemingly infinite folds of delicate petals that bloom in some of the most alluring varieties of purple, pink, gold, yellow, peach, cream, and white.
Azaleas are flowering shrubs that make wonderful gifts as potted plants, can be enjoyed for years in a garden, and also work well in floral arrangements. They have fluttery flowers that blossom in shades of pink, red, and white. They represent femininity.
Of all spring flowers, daffodils are the most emblematic of the season. Like spring, they also symbolize rebirth, renewal, and new beginnings. They’re also delightfully attractive with cute, trumpet-shaped blossoms in sunny shades of yellow, orange, and white.
Freesia, the flowers of friendship, are best known for their recognizable scent, which is often used in perfumes, lotions, and candles. They’re also quite lovely to admire. In vibrant, solid and multicolored hues, their blossoms can sprout up to twelve per stem. Just a couple of freesia stems in a single bouquet will sweeten the atmosphere of your home.
Daisies have fresh, white petals with yellow centers and an effortless beauty that we can’t help but adore. These late-spring bloomers are perfect for celebrating Mother’s Day because they represent childbirth and motherhood.
Camellias are a flowering shrub that blossoms every spring with large, gorgeous flowers. In white, pink, and red, they represent adoration, longing, and deep desire.
We can’t make a list of favorite spring flowers and not include tulips. Spring wouldn’t be the same without them, and each year we delight in their playful beauty. Tulips come in thousands of different varieties, which means they bloom in just about every color and combination of colors you can imagine. Generally, they represent love, but specific colors have more specific symbolic meanings. For example, red tulips represent true love, purple tulips symbolize royalty, and yellow tulips are for cheerful thoughts.
