Which Bulb Are You?

Flowers have personality! Which bulb do you identify with?

Tulip: Tulips come in many bright, saturated colors. They love the sun so will seek out the best angle for light. Striking and bold, tulips clearly love being the center of attention. Tulips are thought to be the symbol of perfect love.

Daffodil: Daffodils are trumpet shaped so seem to announce spring in a bright, trumpeting way. Generally golden-yellow and white, daffodils are seemingly quite friendly, growing together in fields and meadows. They are thought to be a symbol of rebirth and unrequited love.

Hyacinth: The hyacinth is a single dense spike of highly fragrant flowers. They are bell-shaped and beautiful, in many colors including pink and true blue. Hyacinth are thought to symbolize sports and play, signifying an adventurous and playful nature.

Crocus: Although more solitary and small of stature, crocus are determined and hardy. They are found in a wide range of habitats and thrive in late winter/early spring, growing through snow if need be. Crocus are thought to be a symbol of healing and foresight, signifying wisdom.
