Tulips

The tulip is a bulbous plant stemming from the lily family. This beautiful herbaceous herb features glamorous flowers that are sure to add that brightness and cheer to your spring days. The flower’s genus range reaches all the way to North Africa, the Iberian Peninsula, Turkey, Greece and even the Palestinian Territories.

We absolutely adore this spring-blooming perennial. It features a flowering stalk that rises through its delicate leaves. Tulips are available in an array of colors save for pure blue. The tulip is considered a symbol of heaven on earth in Turkish culture. Tulips were a common topic for Persian poets back in the 13th century. This stunning flower was considered a symbol of indulgence in the times of the Ottoman Empire. The Empire’s wealthiest period was referred to as the Tulip Era. The emblem of Iran is shaped to mimic a tulip as an ode to those who perished for the country.

Carnations

A bouquet featuring carnations is exactly what your kitchen, office or bedroom needs this spring. Though no one is sure of the carnation’s origin, it is assumed the flower is from the Mediterranean region. This herbaceous perennial boasts greyish blue-green leaves. The flowers are produced alone or in groups upwards of five per cyme. Lean in to sniff a carnation and you will immediately notice its sweet scent. Though the first carnations were bright pink and purple, contemporary carnations range from green to yellow, white and red. Certain carnation cultivars serve as boutonnieres for men.

This lovely flower symbolizes love, awe and distinction. Though few know it, the carnation is used as a symbol for socialism as well as the labor movement. The white carnation stands for good luck and undying love. Striped versions of this flower represent disappointment that a love can’t be shared.

Lillies

Lillies are flowering plants of the most beautiful variety. This really is the perfect springtime plant. These large perennials often grow upwards of six feet all. Part of the beauty of lillies is that their flowers produce a lovely fragrance. The flower’s appeal also lies in its incredible range of colors. Lillies are available in white, orange, red, purple, pink and yellow.

Daisies

Daisies are just one form of the chrysanthemum plant family. The Spring daisies main colours include white, yellow, green and various shades of mauve. Whereas the Fall season brings shades of rust, burgundy and butterscotch.  Spring daisies typically grow 30 to 35 inches in height. Few know that the word “daisy” is considered to be a “corruption of the eye of the day” as the flower’s head closes in the dark and re-opens in the light.

Six Ways to Celebrate National Flower Day

March 21 is the big day for flower lovers around the globe. Even if you aren’t enamored by flowers, their presence will help you kick off the start of the spring season in the perfect way. Many elect to send flowers to someone special on National Flower Day. Others reward themselves with a sweet-smelling bouquet. There are all sorts of different ways to make this underrated holiday a memorable one.

1. Plant a Flowerbed

If the weather permits, you can celebrate National Flower Day by planting a flowerbed by your window, deck, pool or other outdoor space.

These hues will liven up your property, impress your guests and provide some lovely eye candy for everyone to enjoy.

2. Add Flowers to Your Beauty Regimen

Flowers provide much more than sweet smells and visual appeal. Pick up some lotion or soaps with flower extracts and your beauty will blossom. You can even add flower extracts to your own DIY soap/lotion recipes to give your skin quite the lovely scent. Incorporate some lavender in your bubble baths and you’ll have the perfect means of unwinding after a hectic day. If you would like a fresh new scent, pick out a fragrance with rose or jasmine notes.

3. Accessorize Your Look With Flowers


Flowers are quite the adorable fashion statement. Add a flower to your headband, pin one to your hair bun or sport a pair of tights with a floral pattern for National Flower Day.

4. Accent Your Room With Flowers

Flowers are eye candy of the highest order. Add some blossoms to your living or work space and they will immediately add a bright and cheery tone. Furthermore, flowers are a much more vibrant option to accent a room in your home. Add some orchids to a space in your home that is in need of some much-needed visual flair. Perhaps you have a color neutral space that could benefit from some vibrant daisies. Maybe your office or the study in your home is a little bare and would feel much more peaceful with the addition of lilacs.

5. Cook With Flowers

Most flowers have a lovely scent. Some provide a scrumptious taste. Add some rose petals to your jam with this Rose Petal Jam recipe and you will never look at flowers the same way again!
