When celebrating occasions like Christmas, red flowers are a must. Red flowers can be arranged all on their own, with dark green foliage, or even along with greenery and white flowers. You can even add gold accessories to emphasize the festive theme. When selecting your red flowers for Christmas, it’s good to remember that you need not stick to a single type of flower. You can use multiple types of flowers in order to create a bouquet with various shades of red.
Roses are easily the most popular of all red flowers and it’s not difficult to understand why. They last quite long, they don’t release pollen into the air, and they are beautiful beyond words. Luxurious red roses can be enjoyed on their own or you can add red carnations and even a few stargazer lilies to the bunch.
Carnations are also really popular, especially during winter. They have abundant-looking flowers and the ruffled appearance means that they add fantastic texture to any bouquet. As mentioned above, carnations can be paired with various flowers like roses and lilies.
Anthuriums are tropical flowers and the heart-shaped flower bracts have a distinct glossy appearance. This flower is symbolic of happiness and abundance which makes it a great addition to any home. Display this flower or potted plant in your home or send to a loved one for Christmas.
Gerbera daisies are known for their bright colours and bold appearance. These flowers have a wonderful, open appearance and they too can look perfect on their own or along with other flowers like roses or even carnations.
Zinnias and dahlias are both loved for their full and highly textured appearance. They are both available in red and they work particularly well in mixed bouquets. Whether you want to create a red and white bouquet or a red arrangement consisting of several types of red flowers, you can be sure that either of these two will be a great fit.
If you are looking for flowers with a delicate touch, you can’t go wrong with tulips and peonies. Both of these floral beauties will make your home look even more festive and they make wonderful gifts too. If your florist stocks such flowers in winter, you can be sure that they will be well-receved.
With all of these red flowers to choose from, it’s that much easier to find red blooms for your festive bouquet. With so many options, it’s also possible to shop according to your personal budget and needs.
