Fun Facts about Springtime and Spring Flowers
This year, the first day of spring is March 19th. The flowers won’t know what day it is, but they can sense the days growing longer and the temperatures rising. This prompts them to resume growing and to prepare to bloom.
In the U.S., we recognize the vernal equinox as the start of spring, but people in other parts of the world use different methods, like tracking the lunar calendar, to mark the changing seasons. People in Japan actually let the flowers dictate when spring starts. They don’t officially recognize the beginning of spring until Japan’s national flowers, cherry blossoms, start to bloom.
When to Expect the First and Last Flowers of Spring
The first flowers of the year don’t actually wait around for spring to arrive. Crocuses, snowdrops, and Lenten roses fight off the frost and bloom as early as late January — even in cold climates!
The rest of the blossoms wait for spring, and the early spring flowers begin blooming by the end of March or beginning of April. These early bloomers include irises, hyacinth, tulips, daffodils, and pansies. Late spring flowers need more time to develop and sunshine to bloom. These flowers include roses, peonies, lilacs, daisies, and bluebells.
Our Favorite Spring Flowers for the Home
So many flowers bloom in spring that it’s not easy to choose just a few favorites. The following blooms have become popular choices for displaying in and around the home thanks to their exceptional beauty, special symbolic meanings, and sweet fragrances.
Spring simply wouldn’t feel the same without tulips, and that’s why they make the top of our list. In general, tulips represent love, but different colors (and they bloom in as many as you can imagine) have different meanings. For example, yellow tulips symbolize cheerful thoughts, and red tulips represent true love. Whatever the meaning, a bouquet of mixed tulips in jelly bean colors is the perfect choice for celebrating Easter or another special spring occasion.
Azaleas shrubs have dark-green foliage and fluttery flowers that bloom in alluring shades of pink, red, and white in the spring. They represent femininity and make great gifts as potted plants or in bouquets.
Hyacinths are among the first flowers to bloom for spring. They have cone-shaped clusters of flowers in pink, white, blue, and purple. They’re lovely to admire, but they also smell delicious. Just a couple will perfume a whole room with the flowery scent of spring.
Roses are popular all year, but they’re in season during spring. This means that spring roses are more beautiful, fresher, and also more affordable than roses at other times of the year. Roses are almost like a language of their own because each color has a different meaning. For example, red roses symbolize romance, white represents innocence, lavender is for love at first sight, yellow means friendship, and pink is for admiration.
These blooms have infinite ribbons of petals in striking shades of gold, orange, pink, purple, and cream. With their whimsical beauty, it’s not surprising that they represent attractiveness and charm.
Irises get their name from the Greek word for rainbow, and they bloom in just about as many colors. Depending on the color of the blossom, their symbolic meanings range from purity to passion. Whichever color you choose to display, these tall beauties will make an impact in a cylindrical, glass vase.
Daffodils have cute trumpet-shaped blooms in bubbly shades of yellow, orange, and white. Of all spring flowers, they’re the most emblematic of spring because, like the season, they also symbolize rebirth, new beginnings, and renewal.
