Although the flowers outside might not be in full bloom for a while, you can still enjoy them inside with a bouquet of the seasons freshest, most beautiful blooms from Zeidler’s Flowers. Our flower shops are completely stocked with a variety of all our favorite blossoms of the season, and our florists are excited to show off all our latest spring designs.

Interesting Facts about Springtime and Spring Flowers

The first day of spring falls on March 19th, but of course, the flowers don’t know that. Flowers, however, can sense that the days are getting longer and the temperatures are rising. This is how they know it’s time to start growing and getting ready to bloom.

In the United States, we start spring on the vernal equinox, but people in other parts of the world have different systems, like the lunar calendar, for tracking the changing seasons. Some people choose to leave it to the flowers. In Japan, spring only begins once their national flowers, cherry blossoms, have started to bloom.

Always a popular choice, Ooh La La has been reinvented in shades of purple, fuschia, and lavender. Moody Blues roses, a stargazer lily, daisies, carnations, stock and more, are arranged in a clear glass vase, with a purple ribbon. This fresh, fragrant bouquet is everything you expect, and so pleasing to the eye!

When Do Spring Flowers Actually Start Blooming?

The first flowers of the year don’t wait for the weather to improve. Even in cold climates, flowers like crocuses, Lenten roses, and snowdrops will brave the snow to sometimes bloom as early as late January!

The first flowers of spring start to bloom around the end of March. These early bloomers include tulips, daffodils, irises, hyacinth, and pansies. Other spring flowers need more time to grow in the sunshine before they’re ready to let their colors explode. Late spring bloomers include roses, daisies, bluebells, lilacs, and peonies.

Our Favorite Flowers of the Season

With so many flowers in bloom during spring, it’s not easy to pick a few favorites. The following seven beloved blooms have earned their place in our hearts with their exceptional beauty, divine perfumes, and special symbolic meanings.

Tulips

1. Tulips

Spring wouldn’t be spring without tulips. There are over 3,000 varieties, blooming in just about every color and combination imaginable. For spring, we especially love mixed bouquets in jelly bean or Easter egg colors. Tulips represent love, in general, but each color does have its own meaning. For example, red tulips are for true love, and yellow tulips symbolize cheerful thoughts.

Camellia shrubs blossom every spring with gorgeous, over-sized blooms. In pink, red, and white, they symbolize longing, deep desire, and adoration.

Daffodils

Of all spring flowers, daffodils are the most emblematic of the season. Just like spring, they symbolize rebirth, renewal, and new beginnings. We also love their fun, trumpet-shaped blossoms in yellow, orange, and white.

 

 

 

 

Peonies

Peonies

7. Peonies

Peonies are some of the last flowers to bloom during spring, which might be why they sometimes symbolize bashfulness. They have showy, pom-pom blossoms in blushing shades of pink, and make a great choice for a bridal bouquet because they also symbolize a happy marriage, prosperity, compassion, and honor.
