Here’s a look at some of our favorite Spring bulbs along with the symbolism behind them.

EASTER LILIES

Lily of the Valley is also called Mary’s tears. A charming cluster of tiny, white, bell-shaped blooms. They stand for purity, happiness, luck, and humility. Though they smell delicious, don’t be fooled: These flowers aren’t edible.

TULIP

Tulips are a classic Spring bloom. They are often called the harbingers of Spring, as they are among the first flowers to bloom. Spring flowering bulbs such as the tulip seem to come back from the dead, which is one reason they are associated with Easter. They have a unique bell-shaped blossom that resembles the spherical shape of an Easter egg.
