Unusual Spring Flower Names: Azalea to Zinnia

March 23, 2017 Linda Rosenkrantz
Spring has officially arrived this week, a season traditionally associated with rebirth, when gardens begin to burst into bloom after a long, sometimes seemingly endless, grey winter. Many of the flowers shown here have wonderfully evocative names, especially apropos for a springtime babe.  We’re focusing on the more unusual spring flower names, moving beyond Lily and Daisy to Orchid and Anemone.


An interesting ancient Greek mythological name, that of a flower sacred to Aphrodite, it is also known as the windflower. The anemone is one of the first flowers to bloom in the spring.
