What's in a Name... Bridal Wreath Spirea and Bridal Crown Narcissus

I am often intrigued by the common names that are given to flowers, especially those names that relate to love, romance, weddings and such.
This is from an earlier post about two great flowers with names that are perfect for spring weddings. Both of these flowers bloom in mid to late March. The first is Bridal Wreath Spirea, an old Southern favorite. Graceful, arching branches are lined with lovely white flowers that resemble tiny roses.The stems are perfect for wedding work- especially spring bouquets as shown in the pictures above and below.
Another favorite spring bloomer with a great name for weddings is Bridal Crown Narcissus. These sweetly fragrant flowers are a creamy white with touches of yellow in the cup.
If you are looking forward to a March wedding, both Bridal Wreath Spirea and Bridal Crown Narcissus would be a wonderful addition to your wedding flowers. They have that romantic vintage looks that harkens to an earlier time.
And they would also be wonderful additions to your gardens- no matter what season your wedding is!
