Fun Facts You Probably Didn’t Know About Spring Flowers and Springtime
This year, the first day of spring is March 19th, but the flowers, of course, don’t know that. They do, however, sense that the days are getting longer and the temperatures are rising. As a result, they know it’s time to start growing 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 places use different systems, like the lunar calendar, to track the changing seasons. Some people even leave it up to the flowers to decide when spring truly begins. In Japan, people don’t celebrate the start of spring until their national flowers, cherry blossoms, begin to bloom.
When Does Spring Flowers Start to Bloom?
The first flowers of the year don’t even wait for spring. Even in cold climates, crocuses, Lenten roses, and snowdrops fight through the frost and sometimes bloom as early as late January!
True spring flowers begin blooming around the end of March. Among the first are pansies, hyacinth, daffodils, tulips, and irises. Other flowers need more time to grow in the sun. Late bloomers like roses, peonies, lilacs, bluebells, and daisies don’t bloom until May and June.
The Most Loved Flowers of Spring
So many wonderful flowers bloom during springtime, and that makes it tough to pick just a few favorites. The following are some of the most loved spring flowers thanks to their special symbolic meanings, lovely fragrances, and notable beauty.
Of all spring flowers, daffodils are the most emblematic of spring because, like the season, they symbolize rebirth, new beginnings, and renewal. Among the first to bloom, their cheerful trumpet-shaped blooms in yellow, orange, and white are always a welcome sight.
Daisies have fresh, white petals, happy-looking yellow centers, and an effortless beauty that makes them perfect in rustic bouquets of wildflowers. They represent childbirth and motherhood, which also makes them a great choice for celebrating Mother’s Day.
Spring simply wouldn’t be the same without the playful beauty of tulips. There are thousands of varieties of tulips, and they all bloom in different colors and color combinations.
