When it comes to celebrating Easter on Sunday, April 20th, the perfect addition to this special occasion is...flowers! Easter coincides with the debut of multiple beautiful spring flowers. There are lots of flowers that continue to reappear during this time of year and we wanted to give our Nosegay readers some tips when it comes to our favorite Easter flowers. Flowers are linked to Easter for religious reasons as well as symbolizes the beginning of Spring.
Here are our Top 5 Easter Flowers:
Lily: This particular flower is the most common throughout the spring time as well as most likely to be seen during Easter. Lilies vary in color, shape and size which is why they are so versatile and perfect for this occasion. If you are looking to start a garden, choose lilies! Plan them in fall before it gets too cold and they will likely be around for years to come in your garden.
Tulip: Every one of our Nosegay florist readers is definitely familiar with this flower type. Not only are these flowers common for Easter but a very good option when it comes to same day flower delivery. If you didn’t know, the tulip is part of the lily family. Fun fact: if you get tulip in a floral arrangement for Easter (or any time!) replant your tulips in your garden before they die...they will re-bloom on their own!
Daffodil: With the heavy associate with love, daffodils are often used to decorate beautiful Easter brunch and dinner tables. They come in a variety of colors and are perfect for decorating with tall vases so your guests can see each other without having to move your flower arrangements. They are native to meadows and woods in Europe, Africa and throughout the Western Mediterranean.
Hyacinth: These flowers are known for their wonderful fragrance. You’ll often find these flowers are associated with “rebirth” which is why they are often seen during Easter. They are most likely found in a beautiful blue and purple shade. However, you can also find them in yellow and pink or red.
Daisy: You’ll most likely find these flowers scattered across gardens across the country as well as during Easter. A daisy consists of a yellow center and what appears to be white petals around the yellow center. However, each individual “petal” is in fact an individual flower. Despite their beauty, these flowers are often mistaken or considered weeds and are native to Europe.
You don’t need to celebrate this holiday religiously to enjoy it because of all the beautiful flowers that come along Easter. Given it’s timing, it’s often symbolizes the beginning of spring. We know we’ve been talking about the end of the cold for our DC flower readers for awhile now but hopefully after Easter we can celebrate consistently nice weather as well!
