The customary Easter flowers A legend says that Lilies grew wherever drops of Christ's blood fell as he was crucified, and, Daisies sprung from the tears of the Virgin Mary , which fell on the ground, as she wept for Christ. That is why Lilies and Daisies are the customary Easter flowers symbolizing new beginnings and renewals. Send fresh spring Easter flowers to loved ones to brighten their day. Pair the Easter flowers with Easter Gift baskets to celebrate love and hope of the festival season. You can choose from the customary Lilies, daisies, and tulips or opt for the more contemporary spring flowers chrysanthemums, sunflowers and roses.
