British blooms that are always popular
When searching for the perfect floral gift, you will notice that your local florist has so much to offer. Of course, with so many choices, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Fortunately, you can make choosing easier by keeping the following popular British blooms in mind.
Lilies are some of the most popular of all British blooms. There are several varieties from which to choose and many of them have the most amazing scent. Many lilies are white but you can also find them in some of the most exotic shades of pink, orange and more.
Roses are considered a staple for florists around the world. Which is why it should come as no surprise that they are one of the most popular of all British blooms. So much so that you will find florists keep them in stock throughout the year – even when they are not in season locally. You can find roses in just about every colour you can imagine. Even if you cannot find them in such shades as blue, however, you can always apply floral spray paint or add dye to the vase water.
If you are looking for British blooms with an amazing perfume, you should consider adding freesia to your bouquet. While they can be enjoyed all on their own, you can also pair them with other blooms like roses.
Tulips are another well-known bloom around the world and many people know the story of Tulip Mania. While they are not quite as expensive as they once were, they are no less desirable. They can be added as focal or mass flowers to a bouquet or you can enjoy them all on their own. Different colours have different meanings but, if you would like, you could opt for a mixed bouquet including a rainbow of colours.
Of all the blooms at your local or online florist, carnations are by far one of the most affordable. They are available in so many different colours that you are sure to find the perfect bouquet for any occasion. In addition, you can be sure that they will last at least two weeks which ensures amazing value for money.
Of course, if you are looking for something truly special and extremely luxurious, you should shop around for orchids. There are several varieties from which you can choose and they are lovely as cut flowers but also as potted plants.
These are a few examples of the most popular British blooms that you will find at your favourite florist. Remember, each flower type has a different meaning and the colour will also underline an even more specific meaning. Red blooms, for example, are a romantic gesture. So, keep this in mind when taking your pick.
