6 Flowers We’re Thankful For

Flowers are always in style and in season at Zeidler’s Flowers, serving Evansville and the surrounding areas. Our florists believe flowers have everyday appeal. Flowers are beautiful and fragrant, and they also have some astonishing health benefits that people can enjoy just by spending time around flowers. Flowers have the power to improve your mood, lower stress, and strengthen your memory. People who are sick, injured, or just out of surgery also recover more quickly when they have flowers nearby.

With so many great reasons to love flowers, there’s no reason why you need to wait for the next holiday or special occasion to enjoy a bouquet. Why not order flowers today?

What Are the Most Popular Flowers?

The most popular flowers vary, depending on where and when you live. Camellias and lotus flowers, for example, are popular in East Asia, but rarely used in other parts of the world. There was also a time when tulips were so valuable that were used as currency.

It’s tough for a florist to choose just a few flowers, but we managed to narrow our list down to these six:

1. Lilies

Charming Beauty

Lilies bloom in a whole rainbow of colors and combinations of colors. They’re also available in different varieties, like stargazer lilies and calla lilies. The symbolic meaning depends on the color and type of lily. These sentiments include sweetness, purity, holiness, passion, and prosperity.

2. Sunflowers

Bonfire Bouquet

Sunflowers represent pure thoughts, dedication, and adoration. We love them for their giant, bright yellow blooms and their versatility. They’re popular in autumn arrangements, but also add a splash of sunshine to a bouquet for any occasion.

3. Roses

Roses are timeless beauties that will always be well-loved. They bloom in a variety of colors and are so popular that each type of rose carries a different symbolic meaning. You probably already know that red roses symbolize romance, but did you know lavender roses represent love at first sight? Other colors have meaning, too. Pink is for admiration, orange for passion, yellow for friendship, white for purity, blue for the unattainable, and green for prosperity.

4. King Protea

Tropical Elegance

Protea flowers have an unusual beauty. They come in a few different varieties, and the king protea is the largest. These flowers bloom in a range of pinks, oranges, reds, and purples, and add an element of visual interest and texture to a bouquet. This flower is perfect for anyone resilient, as it represents transformation, change, resourcefulness, and courage.

5. Hydrangea

Beauty in Bloom

Hydrangea blooms look like big snowballs of little flowers. They’re available in a variety of pinks, blues, and purples ranging from light to dark, in addition to white and green. Hydrangea represents the feeling of gratitude at being understood, which makes them a great addition to a bouquet intended for your confidant or close friend.

6. Alstroemeria

Autumn Inspiration

This flower is often overlooked, but they’re true beauties. Alstroemeria petals feature contrasting speckles and bloom in all the fiery colors, in addition to white, peach, and cream. The flower of friendship, alstroemeria also symbolizes wealth, prosperity, and fortune.

What Your Favorite Flower Says About You

All flowers have symbolic meanings, but did you know some people believe a person’s favorite flower can tell you something about their personality? If you love daffodils, you’re likely dreamy and artistic. If you prefer daisies, then you’re said to have an adventurous spirit. Orchid lovers are thought to be mysterious, while rose devotees bring out the best in others. If you love baby’s breath, then you’re young at heart, and if you like lilacs, you’re probably nostalgic.

How Do I Order Flowers for Someone?

When ordering flowers for someone other than yourself, consider your relationship, occasion, and the sentiment you want your floral gift to convey. Save red roses for romantic relationships only, and reserve all-white arrangements for somber occasions, as they symbolize sympathy and remembrance. If you’re not sure what to choose, select a multi-colored bouquet.
