Fun Spring Flower Facts
This year, the first day of spring and the vernal equinox fall on March 19th. The flowers don’t know what day of the year it is, though. They can, however, since the days growing longer and the temperatures getting warmer, and these changes are what prompts them to start to grow and blossom.
In the United States, we recognize the first day of spring as the vernal equinox. People in other parts of the world, however, use the lunar calendar to determine when the seasons change. In Japan, people take their cue from the flowers themselves. Japan doesn’t officially recognize the beginning of spring until the cherry blossoms, their national flower, bloom.

When Exactly Do Spring Flowers Bloom?
Spring flowers, even in cold climates, can bloom as early as late January. Crocuses, Lenten roses, and snowdrops pop their way through the snow and frost to reveal their brilliant colors. Traditional spring flowers like tulips, daffodils, and hyacinth begin blooming toward the end of March. Others need more sunshine and don’t bloom until May or the middle of June. Some of these late bloomers include bluebells, roses, peonies, and lilacs.

Thousands of flowers blossom in spring, and a few have come to embody and represent the season. Some of the most popular flowers of spring include the following blooms that are well-loved for their beauty, fragrance, and symbolic meanings.
Daffodils are the true embodiment of springtime. They bloom early with sunny trumpet-shaped blossoms. Like spring, they also symbolize rebirth, renewal, and new beginnings.
It simply wouldn’t be springtime without tulips and their bulbous, colorful blooms.
