Fun Spring Flower Facts
This year, the vernal equinox and the first day of spring lands on March 19th. The flowers don’t know what day of the month it is, but they do know when it’s time for them to grow and bloom because they can sense the longer days and warmer temperatures.
In the U.S., we celebrate the start of spring on the equinox, but other countries base the schedule of seasons on the lunar calendar. In Japan, people take their seasonal cues from the flowers, waiting to officially recognize the start of spring until their national flowers, cherry blossoms, are in bloom.
When Do Flowers Bloom in Spring?
The first flowers of the year don’t actually wait for spring to arrive, even in cold climates. Crocuses, snowdrops, and Lenten roses push their way through the snow and frost to bloom as early as the end of January.
Other early spring bloomers tend to blossom toward the end of March and beginning of April. These include tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, pansies, and irises. Late spring bloomers like lilacs, peonies, daisies, and roses don’t show their colors until May and June.
7 of Our Favorite Flowers for Springtime
With so many beautiful flowers to choose from, it’s really tough to choose just a few favorites for spring. The following made our list since they’re well-loved for their beauty, fragrance, and special symbolic meanings.
How can tulips not be at the top of a springtime flower list? Tulips blossom with endless variety and add pleasing pops of color to a bouquet, garden, or potted container. Generally, tulips represent love, but different colors have different meanings. For example, red tulips symbolize true love, white tulips are for forgiveness, and yellow tulips represent happy thoughts.
Ranunculus blossoms are stunning to behold. They unravel with infinite layers of petals and bloom in just about every color you can imagine. These whimsical beauties represent charm and attractiveness, making them the perfect addition to any design.
Camellia shrubs bloom heavily with camellia blossoms every spring. These lovely flowers wear shades of pink, red, and white and respectively represent longing, deep desire, and adoration.
Azaleas are the official flowers of femininity. They bloom abundantly in shades of pink, red, and white on shrubs of deep-green foliage. These plants make great gifts in containers, can be enjoyed in the garden, and are also a popular choice of flower for bouquets.
Hyacinths are some of the first flowers to bloom in spring. With cone-shaped clusters of blossoms in pink, blue, purple, and white, hyacinths are perhaps most well-loved for their sweet fragrance.
Of all flowers, daffodils are probably the most emblematic of spring. Their bright yellow, orange, and white trumpet-shaped blossoms symbolize renewal, rebirth, and new beginnings, just like the season.
Irises also bloom in the first part of spring. These flowers get their name from the Greek word for rainbow, and they come in just about as many colors. Depending on the color of the blossom, they have different symbolic meanings, which range from purity to passion.
