Top Popular Flowers
The most popular flowers vary depending on where and when you live. For example, lotus flowers are commonly used in Asia, but not seen very often in other parts of the world. There was also a time when tulips were so popular that they could be used as currency and were also responsible for most of Holland’s economy. Tulips are still commonly loved, but you probably won’t see anyone paying tens of thousands of dollars for a tulip bulb.
Roses have a timeless elegance that will never go out of style. They bloom in so many colors that each one has its own meaning. You probably know that red roses are used to convey romantic love. Orange roses represent passion, pink roses symbolize gentle admiration, yellow roses are for friendship, and white roses symbolize purity.
Proteas are lovely and interesting to look at. They add a surprising element of texture and color to any bouquet. Available in reds, oranges, and pinks, protea flowers also come in different varieties, which include pincushion protea and king protea. Protea flowers symbolize strength, transformation, and diversity. They’re perfect for a courageous and resourceful recipient and make a great addition to a congratulatory bouquet.
We love ranunculus! Like roses, their luscious blooms appear to have millions of petals, and they’re available in a range of pastel and saturated hues including yellow, orange, pink, red, and white. A type of buttercup, these flowers symbolize radiant charm and make the perfect addition to a bouquet for a person you find radiant, beautiful, or charming.
Representing pure thoughts, adoration, and dedication, sunflowers are one of our favorites because they have the power to brighten up any arrangement with their large, yellow blooms.
Orchids are one of the most exotic choices of flowers and are available in countless varieties and colors. They represent female strength, exotic beauty, refinement, mature charm, and thoughtfulness. They’re the perfect gift for all the special women in your life.
What Your Favorite Flowers Says About You
While flowers have their own symbolic language, many people also think that a person’s favorite type of flower reveals something about their personality. For example, daisy lovers are said to have adventurous spirits, while those who favor violets tend to be reserved and witty. Tulip lovers also value family above everything else, and those who like lilacs have a soft spot for nostalgia. If you like daffodils, you might be artistic and have great hospitality.
How Do I Order Flowers for Someone?
When selecting a floral arrangement for a recipient other than yourself, it’s important to think about the occasion, your relationship to the recipient, and the type of sentiment you wish to convey. It’s a good idea to always reserve red roses for romantic relationships and occasions and to save all-white bouquets for more somber events, as they are often used to convey sympathy and remembrance.
