Flowers are in style and in season all year long. At Phoenix Flower Shops, serving Phoenix and the surrounding areas, our florists truly believe in the year-round power of flowers! Flowers are not only beautiful and fragrant, but they also have a myriad of health benefits that people can enjoy just by being around them. Flowers can boost your mood, lower your stress level, and improve your memory. Plus, they’ve been shown to accelerate the recovery of patients who are ailing from illness, injury, or post-surgery. With so many benefits, there’s no reason to wait for a special occasion or holiday. Why not order flowers today?
What Are the Most Popular Flowers?
The most popular flowers are often those with exceptionally unique beauty, lovely fragrances, or those that hold important symbolic meaning. A flower’s popularity also depends on where and when you live. For example, camellias and lotus flowers are favored in East Asia, but rarely used in other parts of the world. There was also a time when tulips were so coveted that they were used as currency and made up a big portion of Holland’s economy. They’re still quite popular today, but you likely won’t find anyone who’s willing to pay tens of thousands of dollars for a single tulip bulb.
These favorite flowers made our list because of their versatility in floral arrangements and classic beauty!
Roses are timeless thanks to their elegant beauty and sweet fragrance. They bloom in a range of colors and are so well-loved that each color of rose has its own symbolic meaning. You probably already know that red roses are for romance, but did you know that pink roses represent gentler emotions like admiration, white roses are for purity, orange roses symbolize passion, and lavender roses are for a love at first sight?
Sunflowers represent adoration, dedication, and pure thoughts. We love them for their ability to add big splashes of sunshine to any ordinary bouquet with their large, bright-yellow blooms. We especially enjoy including sunflowers in autumn arrangements and vibrantly colored designs.
Cushion mums add soft puffs of color to floral arrangements. They’re available in just about every color of the rainbow, but we especial love them in bright green. All varieties of chrysanthemums represent cheerfulness, so they make the perfect addition to a bouquet intended to celebrate any type of happy event.
Depending on the variety of lily, they can represent sweetness, purity, or passion. Both lovely and fragrant, they range in colors and shapes including creamy whites, yellows, oranges, pinks, reds, and deep aubergine.
These flowers are often overlooked, but they’re one of our all-time favorites. Alstroemeria bloom in a range of hues and color combinations and often feature petals with contrasting speckles and spots. This flower of friendship also represents fortune, wealth, and prosperity. It’s a great addition to a bouquet celebrating any new beginning.
Meanings Behind Your Favorite Flowers
In addition to the universal language of flowers and their symbolic meanings, a lot of people believe a person’s favorite flower can reveal something about their personality. For example, tulips are thought to be most loved by those who put family first. Those who love baby’s breath are thought to be young at heart, and those who favor violets are thought to be witty, yet reserved.
Quickly Order Flowers for Someone
When ordering flowers for someone other than yourself, remember to consider your relationship with the recipient, the type of occasion, and the sort of sentiment you’d like the floral arrangement to convey. We recommend only ordering red roses for romantic relationships and occasions. You should also reserve all-white bouquets for more somber events, as they typically represent sympathy and remembrance.
Ordering flowers from Phoenix Flower Shops is easy! On our website, you can have a variety of floral arrangements sent to just about any location. We also welcome customers to stop by any of our flower shops for personalize assistance when selecting a bouquet for your special someone.
