Fun Facts about Spring Flowers and Springtime
This year, spring starts on March 19th, but the flowers obviously won’t know what day it is. They can sense the lengthening days and rising temperatures, which is what prompts them to resume their growth and to get ready to bloom.
In the United States, we recognize the vernal equinox as the first day of spring, but people in other parts of the world use different systems, like the lunar calendar, to track the changing seasons. People in Japan take their cue from the flowers. They don’t celebrate the beginning of spring until their national flower; the cherry blossoms have started to bloom.
When Do Flowers Bloom in Spring?
Even in cold climates, the earliest spring flowers don’t even wait for spring. Lenten roses, crocuses, and snowdrops can fight their way through snow and frost to bloom as early as the end of January.
Most of the flowers considered early spring bloomers begin to show their colors near the end of March or beginning of April. These include Irises, hyacinth, tulips, and pansies. Late spring bloomers need more sunshine and time to develop. These include daisies, bluebells, peonies, and lilacs, which won’t bloom until May or June.
Our Favorite Seasonal Blooms for Welcoming Spring
So many different flowers bloom during spring that it’s tough to choose just a few favorites. These flowers have become popular for spring thanks to their lovely fragrances, beauty, and special symbolic meanings.
Lilac shrubs can grow up to 15 feet tall. When they’re fully grown and blooming, they’re fragrant enough to perfume an entire neighborhood with their very recognizable scent. Lilacs bloom with large clusters of miniatures blossoms in pink, purple, blue, and white, which respectively represent passion, spirituality, happiness, and purity.
Spring wouldn’t be the same without the cheerful colors of tulips’ bulbous blooms. Tulips come in thousands of varieties, in every color of the rainbow, including black and white. They generally represent love, but specific colors of tulips do have their own symbolic meanings. Our favorite, yellow tulips symbolize happy thoughts.
Daisies don’t bloom until late in spring. They have sunny yellow centers and fresh, white petals. Perfect for celebrating Mother’s Day, daisies represent childbirth and motherhood.
Azaleas are a flowering shrub that makes a beautiful potted plant or garden shrub, and they also look beautiful in bouquets. Azaleas have dark-green leaves and fluttery, delicate blossoms that bloom in shades of red, pink, and white. These flowers symbolize femininity.
Daffodils are among the first flowers to bloom for spring, and their bright blossoms in yellow, white, and orange are always a welcome sight after a dreary winter. These trumpet-shaped blooms are quite symbolic of spring, as they also symbolize new beginnings, renewal, and rebirth.
The flowers of friendship, freesia are better recognized for their signature scent than for their beauty, but they are also lovely to look at and share. Up to twelve blossoms bloom on a single stem in some of the most vibrant colors you can imagine.
Roses are a favorite all year long, but they’re actually in season during spring. As a result, spring roses are the freshest and most beautiful you’ll ever see. They’re also more affordable, which makes them a perfect choice for a spring wedding. Each color of rose has a different symbolic meaning.
