Easter Flowers – What They Mean

Easter comes during a very symbolic time of year. As the weather changes and the earth shakes off its winter coat, Easter arrives to remind us of the new life that is growing in all the beautiful plants around us. If you want to make someone's day with a gorgeous bouquet, send them a bouquet of traditional Easter flowers. What are Easter flowers and what do they mean? The list below will guide you:

White lilies

The most traditional symbol of Easter is the beautiful white lily. Long considered an ancient embodiment of the Resurrection, lilies today evoke images of purity, hope, new life and serenity. Consider sending a display of lilies and roses like the ones featured in Teleflora's beautiful and unique Thomas Kinkade's Moments of Grace bouquet. This selection arrives in a lovely vase featuring the artist Thomas Kinkade's timeless and best-selling painting, Garden of Grace.

The familiar blooms of tulips symbolize perfect love, new life and the return to the warmer weather of spring and summer. Bright bushels of tulips mean friendship and happiness, so share that message with a special someone and send them Teleflora's delicate Tulip Treasure arrangement. Yellow, white and pink tulips are showcased in a glass vase. Yellow tulips symbolize joy and friendship. White blooms represent innocence, reverence and humility. Pink flowers mean youth, joy and innocence. Together, these tulips perfectly convey the meaning of Easter time.
