What Is the Spring Equinox?

To those unfamiliar, you’re probably wondering what the spring equinox is. To give you an idea, this event happens when the sun is crossing the equator and going North. As a result, the northern part of the Earth is tilted towards the sun, causing an increase in daylight and temperature.

Spring or March equinox signals the start of a new season, Spring, in the Northern Hemisphere. It is also called the vernal equinox. While the Northern Hemisphere celebrates spring during this time, the Southern Hemisphere is now experiencing fall or autumn.

In Latin, the word equinox means aequus (equal) and nox (night). That’s why it is said that during this time, the length of the day is equal to the size of the night.

When Do Flowers Bloom in Spring?

The strange thing about spring flowers is that they can bloom as early as late January. These species can survive cold climates and find a way to bloom even when most plants fight for their lives.

If you wish to see flowers bloom during winter or frost, plant Lenten roses, snowdrops, and crocuses.

Other species, however, produce their first blooms towards the end of March or the early Spring. These are the traditional spring flowers, which include hyacinths, tulips, and daffodils. Some will take a little time to produce your favorite flowers in the middle or late Spring season.

The key to an abundant presence of colorful blooms is planting a mixture of all the flowers. For sure, you’ll have a bunch of flowers growing around your home for your joy and for the whole neighborhood to enjoy.

Celebrating The First Day of Spring With These Flowers

Now, let’s get to see what these blooming plants are and their special symbolic meanings! Ready?



The first one is daffodil. You would know that Springtime has finally arrived when you see these delicate flowers blooming. The bright yellow blooms have the shape of a trumpet that dangles on top of each stem of the deep green foliage.

Because it blooms early, this plant is associated with rebirth, renewal, and new beginnings. Did you know that the daffodil is also the national flower of Wales? They’re even popular during the Feast of Saint David celebration on the 1st of March.



Tulips are a popular cut flower usually included in various bouquet arrangements. But did you ever wonder why? One main reason is that this plant, specifically the red tulips, symbolizes deep desire and unconditional love. But there can also be other different meanings depending on the color of the tulips.

For example, the yellow tulips represent cheerfulness, hope, and happiness. On the other hand, the white tulips signify purity, honor, and holiness. They’re also being given during funerals as a form of condolence.



Aside from its pale blue to violet flower, hyacinths have now expanded to colors of pink, white, cream, lilacs, and more. You’d notice the flowers blooming in the mid-spring, filling your garden with a burst of adorable colors in cone-shaped clusters.

On top of that, hyacinths are also a natural perfume because of their fragrance. Just imagine how lovely it is when they’re in full bloom.

It is believed that the hyacinth is the flower of the god Apollo, which in turn symbolizes commitment, peace, beauty, and pride.



Crocuses are the early bloomers among the spring flowers. Their first flowers usually appear during the late winter to early spring. They also come in various colors like purple, lavender, blue, orange, yellow, cream, and white, creating whimsical beauties in your garden after a long winter.

Joy and cheerfulness are the symbolism of the crocuses’ delicate flowers. Seeing them bloom in your garden is an excellent way to celebrate spring.



Primrose is a reminder of youth and renewal. They come in yellow, blue, white, pink, and purple colors. They also produce their first flowers early in Spring so that you can enjoy their beauty early on.

Because they’re low-growing with small leafy bushes, they’re best planted on the ground. Once the flower blossoms appear, your garden will brighten up.

While the species mentioned above are the common flowers planted in spring to celebrate new beginnings, there are several other species that you could plant as well. You may include lenten roses, spring roses, cherry blossoms, camellia blossoms, and many other beautiful flowers.

The choice is yours! Remember that when you plant, you do this for your joy.
