Fun Facts about Spring Flowers and Springtime
This year, the first day of spring is March 19th, but the flowers don’t know that. They respond to the lengthening days and warming temperatures, which let them know when it’s time to resume growing and to get ready for blooming.
Lift Me Up Basket
In the U.S., we recognize the vernal equinox as the first day of spring. People in other parts of the world, however, use different systems, like the lunar calendar, to mark the changing seasons. In Japan, people wait for the flowers to tell them when spring has arrived. They don’t officially recognize the start of the season until their national flowers, cherry blossoms, start blooming.
When to Expect the First and Last Blooms of Spring
The first flowers of the year actually bloom way before spring arrives. Even in frosty climates, Lenten roses, crocuses, and snowdrops will push their way through the snow to bloom as early as late January.
True spring flowers begin blooming around the end of March. Some of the first include tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, iris, and pansies. Other spring flowers need more sunshine and time to develop. Lilacs, roses, daisies, bluebells, and peonies don’t bloom until May and June.
Our Favorite Flowers for Celebrating Spring at Home
So many flowers bloom during spring, it’s really tough to choose just a few favorites. These flowers have become super popular during spring thanks to their lovely scents, alluring looks, and special symbolic meanings.
There are thousands of varieties of tulips. They come in just about every color (including all the jelly bean favorites of spring) and also numerous color combinations. Each variety of tulip has a different symbolic meaning, though they all generally represent love. Yellow tulips symbolize cheerful thoughts, red tulips are for true love, and purple tulips represent royalty.
Bluebells grow wild in different places around the country, but professional floral suppliers also grow them because they’re stunning in spring bouquets. These dainty bell-shaped blooms hang in multiples from their stems and represent humility, as they gently bow toward the Earth.
These are some of the earliest flowers to bloom in spring. They have cone-shaped clusters of flowers in blue, purple, white, and pink. They’re lovely to admire, but they also smell wonderful. Just a couple of hyacinths will fill a room with their sweet fragrance.
Roses are a favorite all year, but they’re actually in season during spring. If you love roses, you’ll quickly recognize that those found during spring are the freshest, most beautiful, and most affordable you can get. They bloom in every color of the rainbow (even blue and black roses are produced artificially), and each color has its own significant meaning. Red roses obviously represent romance, but did you know that orange roses symbolize passion, pink roses stand for admiration, and that lavender roses should be given to a love at first sight?
These flowers are so stunning that they actually represent charm and attractiveness. With endless folds of petals, they bloom in strikingly saturated shades of pink, purple, gold, yellow, white, and cream.
These shrubs flower each spring with gorgeous, large blossoms in alluring shades of pink, red, and white. They symbolize longing, deep desire, and adoration.
Of all spring flowers, daffodils are the most emblematic of springtime because, like the season, they represent renewal, rebirth, and new beginnings. They’re also delightful to look at with trumpet-shaped blooms in bubbly shades of yellow, orange, and white.
