Which flowers are available in Spring?
Ah, Spring! A favourite time of year for many - and it’s no wonder!
As the nights become lighter and the weather (hopefully!) milder, Spring brings us bright and beautifully scented blooms, which add a floral burst of sunshine to our lives!
This season’s flowers make such an impact because we are presented with a wide-ranging colour palette, especially when compared with winter flora. Year-on-year, Spring brings many well-loved and well-known favourites, including daffodils, tulips, muscari and iris. At this time of year, we are also treated to a range of blooms with stunning, heady scents, such as genista, mimosa and hyacinths.
If you are a fan of bright, golden tones, you might like to seek out bright yellow sol d’or narcissus, daffodils and yellow-tipped tulips - all of which can be complemented beautifully by vibrant blue iris stems. Other sunshiney flowers for Spring are yellow lilies, which can look beautiful when paired with white large-headed roses and stunning purple lisianthus.
Tulips are a great Spring flower option and come in a huge variety of striking colours, including reds, pinks, purples and yellows; they work equally well in floral arrangements and as a solo flower bouquet. Other flowers which work well in Spring are ranunculus and hellebores which come in a variety of colours and are extremely long lasting
If it’s perfume you are after, hyacinths, stocks, iris and freesia are all great choices. An interesting fact about hyacinths is that each colour offers a slightly different perfume.
Another great idea at this time of year is a cute Spring basket, planted with seasonal favourites. These make for a very versatile gift and an alternative to a bouquet - and they can be displayed proudly on a doorstep as well as indoors.
Whether you will be celebrating Mother’s Day or another special occasion, such as a birthday or anniversary, you can be sure of lots of choice in this season. Why not send someone some Spring sunshine today!
