It’s no surprise that everybody loves lilies. These glorious flowers with long, fragrant petals add a touch of drama and elegance to every occasion, with trumpet-shaped blooms that practically herald the return of spring! Lilies are also popular because they come in a variety of bright colors and can last a long time in cut arrangements.
Lilacs bloom in many hues (purple, pink, and white, among others) and delight the senses with their intoxicating fragrance. No wonder the Celtics considered lilacs “magical.” You will too! Keep an eye out for these beauties — they’ll be arriving in our stores in 2 weeks, but only for a limited time before they disappear. Poof!
Peonies add color and extravagance to any bouquet with their lush layers of textured petals. Ranging in color from snowy white to pastel pink to deep red, peonies symbolize such ideas and values as honor, beauty, romance, and wealth. Talk about versatility! But you can choose them for just being bellissimo!
Though native to central Asia, tulips didn’t really bloom in popularity until they reached the Netherlands. And now these beloved perennials, which are actually part of the lily family, have reached our stores with all the vibrant color and spectacular beauty we expect and adore.
Representing rebirth and new beginnings, daffodils are perhaps the springiest of spring florals, with their sunny-yellow petals, trumpet-like structure, and bright-green stems. These joyful flowers are sure to inspire smiles and warm fuzzies, so gather a bouquet and have a happy spring!
