Fun Facts about Springtime and Seasonal Flowers
This year, the vernal equinox and first day of spring falls on March 19th. The flowers don’t know what day of the year it is, but they can sense the days growing longer and the temperatures getting warmer. That’s how they know it’s time to bloom.
In the United States, we mark the first day of spring with the equinox, but people in other places use different systems, like the lunar calendar, for tracking the seasons. In Japan, people take their cue from the flowers themselves. Spring doesn’t start for the people of Japan until their national flowers, cherry blossoms, have begun to bloom.
When Does Flowers Start Blooming for Spring?
Some flowers start blooming well before spring arrives, even in cold climates. Lenten roses, snowdrops, and crocuses work their way through the snow to sometimes bloom as early as late January.
The majority of spring flowers begin blooming by the end of March. These early bloomers include daffodils, pansies, hyacinths, and tulips. Other flowers don’t bloom until the end of spring because they need a little more sunshine and time to develop. Lilacs, roses, peonies, and daisies don’t bloom until late May or the middle of June.
The Popular Springtime Blooms We’re Most Excited For
It’s tough to choose just a few favorite spring flowers because there are so many that we love. The following made our list of favorites because they’ve grown super popular thanks to their beauty, fragrance, and special symbolic meanings.
Spring wouldn’t be the same without tulips and their bulbous, vibrant blooms. Tulips grow in endless varieties of colors, color combinations, and petal textures. They’re beautiful in flower beds, containers, and in floral arrangements. Generally, tulips represent love, but each color has its own particular symbolism. Our favorite, yellow tulips represent happy thoughts.
Daffodils have happy-looking trumpet-shaped blooms in vibrant yellow, white, and orange. They’re some of the first flowers to bloom in spring, and they’re synonymous with the season. They also represent rebirth, renewal, and new beginnings.
Irises also bloom in early spring, sprouting striking flowers atop their hardy stalks. They get their name from the Greek word for rainbow and bloom in just about as many hues. Depending on the color of the iris, symbolic meanings vary from purity to passion.
Hyacinths bloom early, too. They have cone-shaped clusters of small flowers in shades of pink, blue, purple, and white. Although they’re pretty to look at, they’re most appreciated for their perfume. Just a couple of hyacinths will add a sweet fragrance to your home.
Freesia, the flower of friendship, are also known for their signature scent. These beauties sprout up to twelve blossoms on a single stem, and they bloom in all the brightest colors.
Roses are popular all year, but they’re in-season during spring. This means spring roses are fresher and more beautiful than all others. They’re also much more affordable, making them an excellent choice for spring weddings. Each color of rose has its own meaning. For example, yellow roses symbolize friendship, and pink roses represent gentle admiration. Lavender roses are for love at first sight, and orange roses equal passion.
Daisies don’t bloom until the end of spring. When their fresh white flowers and sunny yellow centers pop up in meadows, they’re lovely to admire. Daisies are the perfect flowers for celebrating Mother’s Day because they represent motherhood and childbirth.
