Fun Facts about Springtime and Spring Flowers
This year, the first day of spring is on March 19th, but the flowers won’t know what day it is. They can sense the lengthening days and warming temperatures, and this is how they know it’s time to resume their growing to prepare to blossom.
In the United States, we recognize the vernal equinox as the first day of spring, but other countries use different systems, like the lunar calendar, to mark the changing seasons. People in Japan take their cue from the flowers. They don’t recognize the beginning of spring until their national flowers, cherry blossoms, have begun to bloom.
When the First and Last Flowers of Spring Will Bloom
The first flowers of the year don’t wait for spring. Even in cold climates, flowers like crocuses, Lenten roses, and snowdrops fight their way through the frost and sometimes bloom as early as late January.
True spring flowers begin blooming around the end of March. These first flowers of spring include daffodils, tulips, irises, hyacinth, and pansies. Others need more sunshine and time before they’re ready to bloom. Late spring flowers like roses, bluebells, daisies, and lilacs don’t bloom until May and June.
Our Favorite Flowers for Spring
With so many beautiful blooming flowers to choose from, it’s not easy picking just a few favorite spring blossoms. The following made our list thanks to their exceptional looks, special symbolic meanings, and notable fragrances.
Azaleas are actually flowering shrubs. They have deep-green foliage and fluttery flowers in alluring shades of red, pink, and white. They represent femininity and make wonderful gifts as potted plants or in floral bouquets.
Spring wouldn’t feel the same without tulips to help us celebrate special occasions like Easter. With their playful beauty, tulips bloom in just about every color and combination of colors you can imagine. Generally, they symbolize love, but each color has its own meaning, too. For example, yellow tulips symbolize cheerful thoughts.
Irises have striking flowers that bloom atop tall, sturdy stalks. These flowers get their name from the Greek word for rainbow, and they blossom in almost as many hues. Depending on the color of bloom, their symbolic meanings range from passion to purity.
Hyacinths are some of the earliest flowers to bloom in spring. They have cone-shaped flower clusters in blue, purple, pink, or white. Although beautiful, they’re better known for their delicious fragrance. Just a couple of blooms will completely perfume a room with a refreshing spring scent.
These shrubs bloom every spring with large, gorgeous blossoms. These attractive rosette flowers come in pink, red, and white and respectively symbolize longing, deep desire, and adoration.
These flowers are so beautiful that they actually represent charm and attractiveness. With endless folds of soft petals in striking colors like purple, gold, peach, cream, and pink, they can add whimsical beauty to any bouquet.
Of all spring flowers, daffodils are the best representatives of spring. Like the season itself, daffodils also symbolize renewal, rebirth, and new beginnings. We especially adore their trumpet-shaped blooms in sunny shades of yellow, white, and orange.
