Fun Facts about Springtime and Spring Flowers
The first day of spring this year falls on March 19th, but the flowers don’t actually know what day it is. They simply sense the lengthening days and warming temperatures, and this is how they know it’s time to resume their growth and to get ready to bloom.
In the United States, spring begins with the vernal equinox, but people in other parts of the world use different systems, like the lunar calendar, to track the changing seasons. People in Japan take their cue from the flowers. They don’t officially recognize the beginning of spring until their national flowers, cherry blossoms, have started to bloom.
When the First and Last Spring Flowers Will Bloom
The first flowers of the year don’t even wait for spring to arrive. Even in cold climates, crocuses, snowdrops, and Lenten roses work their way through the snow and ice to bloom as early as late January.
The first true flowers of spring begin blooming around the end of March. Flowers like hyacinths, tulips, pansies, irises, and daffodils readily welcome the new season. Late spring bloomers like roses, peonies, lilacs, and bluebells don’t come out until May or June.
