The Ten Star Flowers of Spring

Photo n° -
In March, the Floral Trends are based on the theme of spring. An opportunity to rediscover these flowers that bring our gardens and balconies back to life in contact with the first rays of a beneficent, springtime sunshine. 

The tulip
The tulip is a bulbous plant of the lily family. Available at the florist's in December, it only blooms in the garden when spring arrives. Its main qualities are its resistance to cold, its flowering in a wide variety of colours and its excellent bunch-holding qualities. More than 5,000 varieties of tulips have been identified throughout the world.
The narcissus
Spring flower par excellence, the narcissus flowers in the garden in March and April. Its white, yellow, orange, pink or salmon blooms are then noticeable in the middle of nature that struggles to come out of winter. As a bouquet, it is possible to admire the charms of this bulbous plant much earlier, since florists compose it as early as December.
The forsythia
Its luminous flowering marks the arrival of spring. Resistant to the cold and adaptable to different types of soil, the forsythia does not go unnoticed with its multitude of small yellow flowers growing along its branches. It is popular in the garden for its early flowering and rapid growth, and florists also appreciate the way it holds a bunch of flowers.
Throughout the spring and sometimes even in summer, it is courted for its evergreen foliage and elegant, delicately scented flowers. Whether dressed in white, pink, purple or even yellow, magnolia is a real star in the garden, but also in the florist's shop. Offered in a bouquet, it conveys a message of love marked with conviction and loyalty.
Who doesn't know the generous hyacinth? It is one of the most popular flowers in our gardens in spring. In March and until April, its spike-shaped tubular flowers offer us its fragrances in a wide variety of colours. Available from December in floral arrangements, it promises the sensuality of the first spring frolics.
Its flowering is early, as it can start as early as February. Appreciated both in pots and in the ground for its powerful fragrance, its maintenance requires a lot of energy as the plant is capricious and fragile. In the language of flowers, it expresses the desire to please. But beware, its toxicity has earned it the nickname of adorable poison.
From rocky outcrops to massifs and meadows, forget-me-nots bring a touch of gentleness to our spring landscapes. Light and airy, its long flowering period gives us very soft colours. This is why the language of flowers associates it with the memory of happy moments. "Don't forget me," he says after a love break-up.
The daisy
You can recognize them by their white, pink or red with a bright yellow heart and it is in a very rural way that they announce the return of spring. Appreciated for their sparkling flowering, daisies are undemanding plants that adapt to all types of soil and exposure. They are offered to confess a nascent, shy but very tender feeling.
With its star-shaped flowers growing all along its creepers, clematis is considered one of the most beautiful flowering plants. Highly appreciated for its rapid growth and decorative assets, this climber is however fragile and its cultivation must be controlled. For it to flower in the spring, plant it from October in a damp, cool spot.
The rhododendron
Cultivated in pots or in the open ground, the rhododendron offers from April onwards an exceptional flowering period, characterized by multiple spikes of small flowers in a wide variety of colours. It comes in several hundred species and varieties, including the azalea, which can be found in florists' shops for a large part of the year. It is the expression of ephemeral love.
