April’s Birth Flowers
There’s a popular saying about the month of April – “April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.” That quote by William Shakespeare perfectly describes this spring month. April is technically the second month of the spring (in the Northern Hemisphere), but it is a time of renewal, spring cleaning, and planting for growth.
What is the Birth Flower for April?
April brings us two birth flowers: the Daisy and the Sweet Pea. These two delicate flowers usually signify purity and bliss – perfect for that youthful spirit mentioned by Shakespeare.
Botanical Background of Daisies & Sweet Peas
Daisy: Belonging to the family of Asteraceae, daisies are found on every continent besides Antarctica. The flower thrives in a variety of conditions and levels of sunlight. Depending on the species, the daisy can grow between 3 inches to 4 feet. The most popular daisies are the Marguerite daisy, Gloriosa daisy, Shasta daisy, African daisy, and the Gerber daisy.
Sweet Pea: Sweet peas are perfect to put in bouquets or grow in your garden! These hearty plants are very low maintenance flowering annuals. Dating back 300 years from Sicily, there are a number of Sweet Pea varieties for you to choose from – the April in Paris, the America, or Old Spice varieties. All are fragrant and colorful options depending on what you’re trying to grow.
