5 Flowers We’re Thankful For

Flowers are always fresh and fabulous at Toblers Flowers, serving Kansas City and the surrounding areas. Our florists truly believe in the everyday appeal of s because beauty and fragrance aren’t just for special occasions. Flowers also have some pretty amazing health benefits that people can enjoy just by spending time around them. They’ve been shown to lower stress and reduce blood pressure, to boost mood, and improve memory. Flowers can also accelerate recovery for people who are sick, injured, or recovering from surgery.

With so many great reasons to keep s around all the time, there’s no reason to wait for the next holiday or special occasion to surround yourself and your loved ones with s. Why not order today?

The Most Popular Flowers

Flowers gain popularity due to exceptional beauty, fragrance, or special meaning. Flower popularity also depends on where and when you live. Lotus s and camellias, for example, are super popular in East Asia but aren’t used as commonly in other parts of the world. Tulips also enjoyed a time when they were highly valuable. They were so prized that they were used as currency and comprised most of Holland’s economy. People would pay thousands of dollars for a single bulb, as tulips became a symbol of wealth and class.

It’s not easy for florists to narrow their favorites down to just five, but we picked these for their beauty, special meanings, and versatility in floral designs.

1. Roses

By the Fire

Roses are a classic favorite thanks to their elegant, timeless beauty. They smell wonderful and bloom in just about every color. You probably know that red roses are synonymous with romance, but did you know the other varieties have their own meanings, too? To name a few, orange roses symbolize passion, pink ones represent admiration, and lavender roses are for love at first sight.

2. Ranunculus

The Chrissy

We also love ranunculus blooms because they feature the seemingly endless unfolding of petals, like roses, but have more whimsical or rustic beauty. They bloom in a range of pinks, oranges, yellows, creams, and reds. These s symbolize radiant charm and are a fitting gift for someone you find attractive.

3. Pincushion Protea

Fall Elegance

The pincushion protea gets its name from its appearance, which is very similar to a pincushion full of colorful pins. Its sea-creature-like appearance adds visual dynamic and texture to an otherwise ordinary arrangement. Proteas symbolize transformation, resourcefulness, and courage.

4. Calla Lilies

Hydrangea and Calla Lilies

Our favorite type of lily, the calla lily blooms in a range of colors including white, cream, yellow, orange, pink, and deep purple. These noble s look beautiful in any arrangement. Depending on the ‘s hue, meanings can include passion, purity, faithfulness, and holiness.

5. Hydrangea

These beauties have snowball-like clusters of s that bloom in a range of shades of pink, blue, and purple. Green and white hydrangea are also super popular. These s represent gratitude at being understood, making them the perfect choice for a close friend.

What Your Favorite Flower Symbolizes

Flowers all have unique symbolic meanings, and some people also believe that a person’s favorite can reveal something about their personality. For example, those who love roses are thought to be able to bring out the best in others. A love of daisies is the mark of an adventurous spirit, while those who love baby’s breath are thought to be young at heart. If you like lilies, you might have a calming presence, and those who love orchids are considered to be mysterious.

How to Order Flowers for Someone Special

When ordering s for someone other than yourself, it’s important to consider your relationship, the occasion, and the sentiment you hope the s will convey. We recommend only choosing red roses for a romantic relationship or occasion. It’s also smart to reserve all-white floral arrangements for somber occasions because they tend to symbolize sympathy and remembrance.
