Easter Flower Traditions

There are many different flowers associated with the Easter holiday.  Here are just a few of the ones you will see around this holiday and what they mean. The Easter Lily represents Christ’s resurrection, purity, and hope.  It’s one of the most popular flowers for Easter. Azaleas represent temperance, passion, fragility, say “take care of yourself,” and, in China, represent womanhood. Daisies stand for innocence, loyalty, gentleness, and purity. Tulips stand for the values of passion, perfect love, and belief.  Their bright colors are also a great way of welcoming spring. The chrysanthemum represents cheerfulness, rest, and says “you’re a wonderful friend!” Daffodils symbolize unrequited love, regard, and say “you’re the only one for me.”  They’re also a great spring flower.
