Find the Most Beautiful Spring Flowers at Tacoma Boys
Nearly every human being on earth appreciates the beauty of amazing flowers, even if they’re not a “flower person”. And flowers in the spring time can be exceptional! Especially in the beautiful pacific northwest.
Flowers are bright, they’re cheery and they liven up any porch or kitchen counter. Maybe this has something to do with the fact that flowers are scientifically proven to induce happiness. But this article is not about the science behind flowers, but the variety that comes with the spring.
At Tacoma Boys and H&L Produce, we too love flowers! Which is why we stock one of the best selections of spring flowers in Washington state. If you haven’t browsed our bouquets, hanging baskets, and wide variety of every imaginable spring flower, then you are missing out!
Read on to find out what types of spring blooms we love, as well as tips for selecting some of the best flowers for your garden or home.
Some of Our Favorite Spring Flowers
We stock a wide selection of seasonal flowers. These are some of our favorite spring blooms for gifting and decorating your home.
Add a Pop of Yellow With Daffodils
There is something so unapologetic about the sumptuousness of daffodils. At the same time, they are a very cheerful, bright flower that is perfect for warming away the winter blues, busting stress, and even reducing levels of physical pain!
Instagram Worthy With Tulips
Who doesn’t love the perfection of tulips? Their compact silky blossoms are long-lasting, and paired with their almost faux-like green stems these make ideal cut flowers for decorating your living area.
Get Elegant With Irises
If you want to give an elegant bunch of spring blooms to someone—or take home a bunch to add the pizzaz to your space—irises are an excellent choice. Classy and intense yet not overly large, irises also come in a variety of colors.
Loving on Lilies
Another spring classic that we love is the lily. Not only do lily flowers smell amazing, but they are also visually stunning blooms with perfect symmetry and a striking structure. Not to mentions a vast array of color variations.
Pansies or Violas?
The only real difference is the pedal count. Beautiful and subtle, pansies and violas are great in baskets and out of the harsh sun of the summer.
Tips for Picking out the Perfect Spring Flowers
Are you inspired yet to go and pick out a pristine bunch of spring blooms? If so, here are some tips.
Inspect the Petals and Stems
When looking at flowers, a pro move is to inspect the petals and stems.
The petals should look pristine, without any blackened tips or brown marks. If spots or marks are present, this indicates that the flowers are past their prime and won’t last very long back at home.
At the same time, give the stems a quick peek. Are they wet? If so this means that they have been in water which is a good indicator that the flowers will last well.
At Tacoma Boys and H&L Produce, we daily groom, pluck, water and prune all of our plants to be healthy and ready for you to take home. We care so much, the owner Paul does much of this work himself, the same way he has for 3 decades. Meticulous and correct. And if there is ever a question, just ask. We will help you pick out the absolute best plants for your needs.
Buy Seasonal Blooms
Buying flowers in season guarantees that not only will you get the best prices, but you will also get the best blooms, as most flowers flourish optimally during their natural season. We get plants in during the proper season and rotate them out as the season continues with other amazing flowers and flowering plants.
Think About the Vase
If you are purchasing a spray of flowers for yourself, start thinking about the vase you want to display them in and how this will work with the structure of the arrangement. If you are buying flowers for someone you know very well (such as your mother) you might be able to envision their vase as well.
And if cut flowers aren’t your thing, we have small and large ones that can continue to grow and flourish in one of our amazing pots!
