First, a note about the color red: Why is red such an exciting flower color?
The color red has an epic history spanning human history with roots found in the red clay, which was ground up and used to paint on cave walls, the oldest recorded example of human art. Since then, it has found a home in civilizations across the world with varying meanings, from love, passion, and romance in recent history to holy blood, life, war, wealth, power, danger, lust, adventure, etc. In the west, when paired with green, it has come to symbolize the positivity and festivity of the holiday season, and paired with blue and white symbolizes patriotism in Republics around the world.
The intensity and vivacity of these ruby beauties are impossible to ignore. See how your home transforms around an arrangement of joyful and warming red flowers.
