Nothing symbolizes the arrival of spring more than seeing the most popular and iconic flowers appear. Cutting or buying a bouquet of spring's beautiful and delicate flowers will bring the brightness and cheer of the new season into your home. With these tips, you can choose a floral arrangement composed of the spring's most popular flowers.

Tulips

Tulips are one of the most popular spring flowers year-round. Their distinctive, cup-shaped blossoms vary in petal shape and are available in an incredible range of colors and combinations. This aesthetically pleasing blossom is popular in gardens worldwide. A bouquet of ribbon-bundled tulips looks beautiful gracing a home tabletop.

Lilies

Spring blooming lilies are another distinctive and popular flower for floral arrangements. While tulips bloom upright, the petals of lilies open in all directions, meaning that bouquets of lilies are full and bright with colors. They are also available in many different colors, shapes, and patterns.

Daffodil

A classic spring bloomer, daffodils are normally available only in combinations of white and yellow. This cheerful flower has appealing, open blossoms with a trumpet-shaped center corona and is an important part of Chinese New Year's celebrations held in the spring.

Gerber Daisies

Daisies have long been a symbol of innocence, and Gerber daisies, available in a wide range of strong, bright hues, will make winter a faint memory. Combine pink, yellow, and white varieties for a beautiful spring bouquet.

Roses

Roses, available commercially year-round, make an obligatory spring appearance on Valentine's Day and Mother's Day. Symbolize your affections for your loved ones by giving them a bouquet of pink roses, or fill your home with their signature scent with a bouquet of mixed white and pink roses.

Spring, with its promise of renewal and fresh beginnings, is many people's favorite time of year. Channel the beauty of the season by decorating your home with gorgeous spring blossoms from your own garden or your nearest florist.
