What are Easter flowers?
So, what are traditional Easter flowers? It’s a question customers often ask this time of year. We explore some of the most popular petals, all of which are available in stunning floral arrangements hand-made by our talented local florists.
If you’re asking what is the flower of Easter, this might well be the answer over and above all others. Shaped like little trumpets, lilies certainly herald the arrival of spring! Mentioned in the Bible’s New and Old Testament, Christians closely associate this flower with Jesus Christ.
Some accounts suggest the white lily first formed from Jesus’s sweat hitting the ground shortly before his death. Others suggest the flower was growing in gardens where he prayed on the Eve of his crucifixion.
We do know with certainty that lilies bloom this time of year. White lilies symbolise rebirth and purity and there is no question they look exquisite in flower arrangements!
We began with the most traditional Easter flower, so let’s now move on to the most prolific.
The Netherlands is the garden bowl of the world, and tulips are its number one flower. Some reports suggest this small European nation produces more than 3 billion bulbs a year!
Tulips begin to bloom in spring, with many suggesting their elegant shape resembles small Easter eggs. With the mind-boggling variety of petal colours and textures now available, they certainly make for an incredible assortment of eggs!
It would be remiss to talk about this time of year and not mention the national flower of Wales. Some of the earliest spring flowers to bloom each year, daffodils have a strong rebirth connotation, often popping up out of nowhere from dry ground to cast spectacular sunshine yellow across the landscape.
Bunny rabbits and daisies go hand-in-hand with seasonal cuteness overload, don’t they? Also associated with the passion of Christ, daisies are the perfect, whimsical addition to an Easter basket of flowers.
