At Griffin’s Floral Design & Wineshop, our florists love to celebrate the season of renewal with the freshest and most beautiful spring flowers. Our flower shop is stocked with seasonal blooms, and we can’t wait to share our new spring designs with you.
Fun Facts about Spring Flowers and Springtime
This year, the vernal equinox and the first day of spring falls on March 19th, but the flowers won’t know what day it is. Plants, however, can sense the lengthening days and rising temperatures, which prompt them to start growing and to bloom.
The U.S. recognizes the 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 seasons. In Japan, people don’t celebrate the beginning of spring until their national flowers, cherry blossoms, bloom.
When Do Flowers Bloom in Spring?
Some flowers start blooming before spring even arrives. Crocuses, snowdrops, and Lenten roses fight their way through snow and frost to bloom as early as late January.
Most of spring’s early-blooming flowers start around the end of March and beginning of April. These include tulips, daffodils, and pansies. Other spring flowers need more time to develop and grow. As a result, flowers like roses, peonies, and lilacs don’t blossom until May and June.
The 7 Flowers We’re Most Excited to See This Spring
With so many different flowers that bloom in spring, it’s tough to choose just a few favorites. We’re looking forward to seeing all of their colorful blossoms, but each year our florists get particularly excited for the following flowers. These are exceptionally beautiful, fragrant, and have special meaning for springtime.
Springtime wouldn’t be the same without tulips. These bulbous blooms come in endless varieties and look fantastic in the garden, in containers, and floral arrangements. Each color of the tulip has its special meaning. Our favorite, yellow tulips, represent happy thoughts.
Roses are popular all year long, but they’re in-season in spring. If you love roses, then you’ll immediately recognize that spring roses are the freshest and most beautiful you can find. They’re also more affordable, making roses an excellent choice for a spring wedding. Each color of rose has its symbolic meaning. Red roses symbolize romance, orange equals passion, yellow is for friendship, pink for gentle admiration, and lavender represents love at first sight.
Camellia shrubs bloom each spring with absolutely gorgeous blossoms. In pink, white, and red, they symbolize longing, adoration, and sincere desire.
These are some of the first flowers to bloom in spring. They have pretty cone-shaped flower clusters in blue, purple, pink, and white, and they also smell lovely. A couple of hyacinth blooms is all you need to freshen a room.
Azalea shrubs have deep-green foliage and bloom with delicate flowers in shades of red, pink, and white. These flowers that represent femininity are perfect as potted plants, with mulch in the garden, or as stems in a floral arrangement.
Daffodils are synonymous with spring. Like the season, they represent renewal, rebirth, and new beginnings. We love them for their cheerful trumpet-shaped noses in buttery yellow, orange, and white.
Daisies don’t bloom until near the end of spring, but their fresh-white flowers and sunny yellow centers are worth the wait. These delicate blossoms are perfect for celebrating Mother’s Day because they symbolize motherhood, childbirth, and new beginnings.
