Some of the Most Popular Flowers

All flowers are beautiful and worthy of adoration, but the most popular tend to have special meaning, unique beauty, or a lovely scent. Flower popularity often depends on where and when you live. For example, camellias and lotus flowers are beloved in East Asia, but less widely used in other parts of the world. Tulips were once so desired that they were used as currency and comprised most of Holland’s economy. They’re still popular today, but you probably won’t see anyone spend tens of thousands of dollars on a single tulip bulb.

1. Roses

Pretty in Pink and Purple

We will always prize roses for the timeless, elegant beauty and gentle fragrance. They bloom in a wide variety of colors and are so popular that each color has its own meaning. You probably know that red roses symbolize romantic love, but might be less familiar with the meanings of other colors. For example, pink roses represent gentle feelings like admiration, orange roses symbolize passion, yellow roses are for passion, and white roses represent purity. Give lavender roses to your love at first sight.

2. Calla Lilies

Not surprisingly, calla lilies symbolize magnificence and beauty, and they add these qualities to any bouquet. Calla lilies are available in a variety of colors, starting with creamy whites and yellows and deepening through orange, pink, red, and aubergine.

3. Hydrangea

Hydrangea represents gratitude at being understood, making their white, blue, lavender, and pink blooms a welcome addition to a floral gift for a close friend or confidant. Their beautiful flowers bloom in snow-ball like clusters and add depth to any arrangement.

4. Tulips

P.S. I Love You

Once coveted all around the world, tulips are still popular today. They bloom in countless varieties of colors and color combinations. Tulips represent love, fame, and can also be used as a declaration of love. They’re also a cheerful choice of flower for celebrating springtime and occasions that fall during that time of year.

5. Orchids

Orchids are one of the most exotic flower choices. They possess truly unique beauty and are available in a countless number of varieties. Orchids represent glorious femininity, exotic beauty, refinement, and thoughtfulness. They’re the perfect gift for all the special women in your life.

What Your Favorite Flower Says About You

While all flowers have special symbolic meanings, many people also believe that a person’s favorite flower has the power to reveal something about their personality. For example, tulip lovers are thought to value their families over everything else. Those who love lilacs have a penchant for the past and nostalgia. Daffodil devotees are creative and have great hospitality. People who prefer violets are said to be reserved and witty, while daisy lovers have adventurous spirits.

Ordering Flowers for Someone

When choosing a floral arrangement for someone other than yourself, it’s important to think about your relationship with the recipient, the type of occasion, and what you want your flowers to say. We recommend reserving red roses for romantic relationships and occasions only. All-white bouquets are usually most appropriate for somber occasions, as they tend to represent sympathy and remembrance. If you’re not sure, choose a bouquet with a variety of colors and flowers or one that catches your eye.
