5 Beautiful Blooms We’re Thankful For

Flowers are always in style and in season at Rose Hill Flowers, serving Nashville and the surrounding areas. Our florists believe flowers should be admired every day of the year — not just on special occasions. They’re beautiful and fragrant, but also have several incredible health benefits that you can experience just by being around flowers. They’ve been shown to reduce stress and lower blood pressure, boost mood, and improve memory. They also help individuals who are sick, injured, or recovering from surgery to get well more quickly.

Most Popular Flowers

The most popular flowers are exceptionally beautiful, powerfully fragrant, and have special meanings. Flower popularity also depends on where and when you live. For example, camellias and lotus flowers are commonly used in East Asia, but not seen as frequently in other places. There was also a time when tulips were highly prized and valuable. They were traded as currency and became a status symbol. There were even people willing to pay thousands for a single tulip bulb.

It’s not easy for florists to narrow their favorite flowers down to a list of just five, but we picked these because of their popularity, beauty, and symbolic meanings.

1. Roses

Roses are timeless and elegant. They also bloom in a vast variety of colors and combinations. Red roses are synonymous with romance, but did you know other colors hold their own significance? Orange roses symbolize passion, pink roses are for admiration, lavender is for love at first sight, and yellow roses represent friendship.

2. Pincushion Protea

The pincushion protea gets its name from its appearance, which resembles a pincushion full of sewing pins. They bloom in vibrant, warm colors and add textural drama to any bouquet. These flowers represent transformation, courage, and resourcefulness.

4. Lilies

Lilies are one of our favorite flowers to include in a variety of bouquets because of their versatility. There are several different varieties that feature blooms of different, shapes, sizes, and almost every color, except blue. Depending on the color and type of lily, they can symbolize faithfulness, purity, sweetness, creativity, prosperity, and passion.

5. Orchids

Orchids symbolize exotic beauty, glorious femininity, refinement, thoughtfulness, and charm, making them a wonderful gift for any special woman. We especially love orchids because of the sheer variety. An estimated 30,000 different types grow around the world. They’re beautiful, delicate, and really achieve the wow factor in a floral design.

What Your Favorite Flowers Represent

Each flower has its own symbolic meaning, and many people also think that a person’s favorite flower can reveal something about their personality. For example, if your favorite flower is a rose, then it’s likely you bring out the best in others. If you love lilies, you might have a calming effect on others. Orchid lovers are said to be mysterious, while those who love sunflowers tend to be cheerful.

Ways to Order Flowers for Someone

When ordering flowers for someone, it’s essential to consider your relationship, the occasion, and what you want the flowers to say. We recommend red roses for romantic relationships only. It’s also smart to save all-white floral arrangements for somber occasions, as they represent remembrance and sympathy. If you’re not sure what type of bouquet is appropriate, you really can’t go wrong with a seasonal arrangement or a design feature several colors and flowers.
