This Easter will see numerous people sending flowers to friends and family, or buying flowers for their homes. Indeed, Easter is a great time to send flowers – both nationally and internationally – as the arrival of spring (in the northern hemisphere at least) brings with it a much greater variety of flowers. Most of the spring bulb flowers will be readily available and, as the mercury rises and more sunshine (hopefully) shows its face, many flower farms will become awash with colour. But what is the history behind flowers at Easter?
The most popular flower at this time of the year is the lily and there’s plenty of legend and folklore surrounding the significance of this lovely flower. The Easter lily, as it is often referred to, is the longiflorum lily, a flower that’s highly regarded as symbol of elegance, beauty, spirituality, hope and life.
