Your Florist’s Top 7 Recommendations for Spring, Port Jervis, New York

As the weather warms up and snow clears away, this is the perfect time to visit your florist for some of the season’s sweetest flowers. Spring flowers add color and freshness to your home along with their pleasant fragrance. Here are a few of the top picks for spring so you can add them to your order.

The Best Spring Flowers

1. Peonies

Peonies come in a range of varieties, including Chinese or “garden” peonies and tree varieties. With lush blossoms in shades from snow to blood to coral, you’ll love these flowers for their riot of petals and delicate scent.

2. Gerber Daisies

Gerber daisies, also known simply as Gerbera, are more full and lush than other daisy varieties, making them an excellent choice to celebrate the explosive growth of spring. Choose a mixed-color bouquet for a stunning contrast.

3. Snapdragons

FloristFor a more delicate choice, snapdragons are the way to go. These flowers grow in thick clusters in a range of colors from deep, dark purple to pale yellow and white.

4. Lilies

Lilies are a popular choice at this time of year, especially around Easter due to their association with the holiday. Choose from a full range of colors, including pure white, vibrant yellow and orange, blood red, or delicate pink.

5. Lilac

Speaking of scented flowers, lilacs are a popular choice for this reason. While there is less color variety than many other spring flowers, these pink-and-purple blossoms can have any scent from sweet to spicy depending on the variety.

6. Sweet Pea

Recognizable for their distinctive shape, sweet peas feature a large petal hood over a smaller, tighter cluster of petals perched delicately on this flower’s stem. Sweet peas come in a range of colors, including a number of soft in-between shades.

7. Magnolia

Magnolia blossoms are large and beautifully scented with a rich, heavy fragrance. Some trees have blossoms up to a foot in diameter, with thick, crisp-looking petals.

While each of these flowers has its own unique characteristics, all are excellent choices to celebrate the emergence of spring. If you’re still not sure exactly what you’re looking for, ask your florist for recommendations.
