Spring Flowers and Their Meanings

Spring is finally here! I am so excited for when spring finally arrives for me as there is still lots of snow where I live. For those who enjoy gardening or love flowers, I'll be providing a variety of spring flowers and their meanings.


I have two different packs of seeds to plant flowers around the house. I'm super excited to plant them and to surround our home with beautiful flowers. Honestly, I'll probably end up buying more.


Tulips

The meaning of tulips is perfect love. Tulips are beautiful flowers of spring and they are really easy to grow. To have these flowers, all you need to do is plant the bulbs in mid to late fall and they will blossom the following spring. Plant in groups of 7 or more bulbs and make sure to plant them 6" to 8" deep and 4" to 5" apart.



Crocus

The meaning of these beautiful flowers is joy. These plants contain a sweet smell that makes them easy for bees to find. For those who would like to plant crocuses, it's really easy to do. Plant the crocuses before the ground freezes during fall, 3 to 4 inches deep and roughly 3 inches apart.



Pansy

The meaning of the pansy flowers is love, and one thing I love about these beautiful flowers is that they're in the shape of a heart. Pansies have a variety of colours, such as blue, multicolour, orange, purple, red, pink, white, and yellow, and you can plant these in the fall or early spring. These flowers also attract butterflies, which I thought was pretty interesting, as I love butterflies.



Snowdrop

Snowdrop flowers mean hope as it's the first flower that blooms in the springtime. To plant these, you should find the moistest and well-drained soil and plant them in the early fall. They're suitable for any garden you may own. Snowdrops will need lots of water as well, so make sure to water them as needed.



Primrose

Everlasting existence is the meaning of Primrose plants because it's one of the first of many flowers to bloom in the spring. Primrose plants are suitable for any garden bed and they can be used in containers as well. These wonderful flowers normally last throughout the summer and sometimes even during fall, too.


When deciding to plant the seeds, it's best to start in the fall when the ground is still warm, but make sure the ground is not hot. For the best results, choose a spot that contains a lot of shade to plant them.



Lilac

I love lilacs because of the beauty they bring in the spring and the fragrance they have. Their meaning is spring and confidence. Like many other flowers, lilacs can be planted in either spring or fall and when planting, add a layer of compost underneath the plant.



Iris

The true meaning of irises is admiration and these flowers contain a variety of colours such as blue, orange, red, purple, pink, white, yellow, and multicolour. Planting irises can be done in late summer or early fall when the temperatures are between 40 and 50 degrees or above. The flowers bloom best when they are exposed to the sun full time.



Peonies

These beautiful flowers mean a few different things, such as love, happiness, honour, romance, and beauty. Peonies are generally given to others on special occasions for good luck, best wishes, and joy.

The beautiful flowers have five different colours: pink, red, purple, white, and yellow. My personal favourites are pink are red ones. I find that those two colours are the ones I see most often and they stand out.


Peonies bloom from late spring through the early summer. It depends on your location. You can plate these beautiful flowers in late September or in October.



Roses

This may sound like a cliché, but roses are one of my favourite flowers, even if they only last a week, sometimes more if you're lucky. My significant other had gotten me roses a couple of years ago for Valentine's Day and I was surprised because the flowers had lasted over a week, but I sure wasn't complaining.


The meaning of these flowers is an obvious one; they symbolize romance and love. Roses can bloom in the spring, summer, and fall, which is something I didn't know until recently. I've also never planted them before, but I would love to give them a try sometime.
