Next on our list of flower options; the brightest, happiest flower! You can’t go wrong with a bunch of sunflowers. A happy flower that will brighten up anybody’s day, sunflowers are also a symbol of loyalty.
Sunflowers are beautiful as a standalone bunch or as part of a fresh flower arrangement.
These are slightly less common cut flowers. They look a little like roses but have a more cup-shaped flower.
Available in beautiful hues of pink and red, they typically represent attraction and charm. Perfect for sending someone you are dazzled by!
These exotic flowers are another symbol of love and passion. They come in a variety of colors and are a little more exciting than sending roses. If you want to be a little unpredictable, then send orchids rather than roses.
These bright, cheerful, large flowers are native to Asia and the Americas.
Sending someone flowers always has meaning. Hydrangeas are the perfect flower to send to show gratitude and deepfelt emotion to someone special.
Can’t Choose Between The Different Types of Flowers?
Then why not send a bouquet that mixes some of the best? Roses and lilies make a beautiful bouquet when combined, as do lilies and orchids. A food basket also works as an exceptional gift to send along with flowers. If you choose flowers for a bouquet or arrangement, stick to the same color tones that are appealing to look at.
