From late winter through early spring season, there are many wild flowers introduced below. It is a good time to make the best use of such flowers for spring floral decorations. As you know we are going to have various holidays, floral festivals and spring events during this particular season.

Therefore floral designers never have difficulties of finding good opportunities for making beautiful floral decorations in this season. According to “I love to know garden” (garden.lovetoknow.com), we have following flowers famous for early spring flowers:

*Winter Aconite: Also known as Eranthis, these pale yellow blooms might be considered insignificant later in the year, but they are a joyous sight when they push through the snow.

*Witch Hazel: These shrubs add a wonderful touch of yellow in the early spring garden. Some cultivars bloom red.

*Crocus: The earliest varieties, such as Crocus chrysanthus, Crocus sieberi and Crocus tommasinianus, bloom through the snow. These are the small crocus that usually flower in shades of purple or yellow.

*Hellebore: These are often known by common names such as Christmas Rose and Lenten Rose in areas with mild winters.

*Camellia: This beautiful shrub has lovely blossoms in mild winter climates or early spring in slightly harsher areas.

*Snowdrop: This is another early bulb that sometimes blooms even through the snow.

*Chinodoxa: This is commonly called Glory of the Snow. These pale blue flowers bloom as the snow melts.

*Pansy: Cool growers, pansies bloom early and hardy to frost and snow. The will continue to bloom until the weather turns hot.

Why not use some of these flowers for your floral arrangements displayed in your home, office or at a party or festival in your community ?
