The Perfect Flowers for Your Easter Sunday

Flowers are the perfect option for Easter.

Whether you’re hoping to brighten someone’s day, celebrate your faith or give your loved one a gift that won’t rot their teeth, flowers are the perfect answer for Easter. Not only is Easter a fantastic holiday that is celebrated throughout the Christian faith, it also marks the beginning of spring. And, what better way to celebrate spring than with beautiful flowers? If you’re looking for the perfect flowers to commemorate Easter and welcome in the spring, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s a list of some of the best flowers for Easter Sunday.

Easter Lily

You can’t mention Easter flowers without talking about the Easter lily. In mythology, it is said that Easter lilies first grew where the blood of Christ fell to the ground as he was hanging on the cross. These lilies were also said to have grown on Jesus’s tomb. These stunning white lilies symbolize purity, hope and love, which make them perfect for both Easter and spring.


While tulips are annuals in some climates, in other climates, they are perennials. Perennial tulips are some of the first flowers to bloom in the spring, and when they rise up from the ground, it’s almost as if they are rising from the dead. This is one of the more obvious reasons why tulips are an ideal flower for Easter, and they also symbolize belief, passion and love, which makes them even more important for that special day.

Easter Cactus

The Easter Cactus sprouts beautiful, red blossoms that appear just around Easter time in the Northern Hemisphere. The sheer fact that Easter cactus blossoms in the spring makes it easy to understand why these flowers are perfect for Easter, but they also are a symbol of resurrection and rebirth.


There are many legends and myths that tie daisies to Easter. In one, daisies originally sprang from the ground from the tears of the Virgin Mary, when she wept as Jesus was crucified. Another legend tying daisies to Jesus says that the wise men who followed the North Start to find Jesus were able to find the right stable because the daisies growing around it resembled the star they followed to get there. They are also perfect for both Easter and spring because they symbolize innocence, purity, loyalty and gentleness.


Like many of the flowers we’ve talked about, the legend of the origin of daffodils is also rooted in Easter. The legend says that Jesus was comforted by the first daffodil, which appeared in the garden of Gethsemane right before he was taken away for crucifixion. Daffodils symbolize rebirth and new beginnings, which is the epitome of both Easter and the spring season.


Hyacinths are the perfect spring flower. They bloom early in the spring, and they come in a variety of beautiful colors associated with Easter, including white, pink, yellow and many different shades of purple. Hyacinths symbolize play and sport, and what’s the first thing most of us do in those initial warm, sunny days of spring? We get outside and play!

Whether your Easter includes a religious observance, or you plan on spending the day hunting for Easter eggs, there is no question that everyone holds the holiday in a special place. It seems however we celebrate, and whatever our customs – flowers are always a meaningful part of it.


There are many flowers that have come to symbolize springtime, and by extension, the Easter holiday. The most commonly associated flower to Easter is the white lily; the magnificent blossom is thought to signify divinity and renewal, it is closely tied to the biblical Resurrection story. The crocus is known to be the first heralder of the new season, the adventurous blooms often poke up through snow and frost, seemingly impatient for the beginning of spring. The daffodil is also one of the first flowers that appears in the spring; its sunny demeanor and warm vibrant hue make it one of the most popular blooms to give and receive during the Easter season.
