The beauties are simple to grow and don’t require much attention.

What Are the Meanings of March’s Birth Flower?

Because daffodils are usually one of the first flowers to bloom after winter, they symbolize rebirth and new beginnings. The cheerful color also symbolizes happiness and joy. For such reason, the daffodils are also a common gift on 10 year wedding anniversaries.

The daffodil has taken on significance around the world. Because they bloom around Chinese New Year, daffodils are known to bring good luck and prosperity in China. In England, daffodils are referred to as “Lent lilies” because they bloom between Ash Wednesday and Easter.
