5 Flowers We Love

At Breen’s Florist, serving Houston and the surrounding areas, flowers are always in style and in season. Flowers are beautiful and smell delicious, and they also have a variety of health benefits that people enjoy just from being around them. Flowers help sick and injured people recover more quickly. They also have the power to reduce stress, boost your mood, and improve your memory. With so many wonderful benefits, there’s no reason to wait for a special occasion or holiday; you can order flowers throughout the year!

The Most Popular Flowers

Roses have always been in style, but the popularity of other flowers often depends on when and where you live. There was a time, for example, when tulips were all the rage. They were so valuable that they were used as currency and represented the majority of Holland’s economy. Today, however, no one’s paying tens of thousands of dollars for a tulip bulb.

1. Roses

Roses possess a classically elegant beauty that will always be popular. They also have a sweet, gentle fragrance. Roses are so popular that all their different colors speak a floral language of their own. You probably know that red roses symbolize romantic love, but did you know that yellow roses are for friendship, orange for passion, lavender symbolizes love at first sight, and pink roses are for gentle emotions like admiration? If you’re not sure what emotions you’re feeling, a bouquet of mixed roses is a great choice.

2. Lilies

We love lilies for their vast variety in blooms and colors. They range in shape, size, hue, and symbolic meaning (sweetness, purity, and passion) depending on the type of lily you choose, but they’re all beautiful and exotic. Colors include a range of deep purples, fuchsias, oranges, yellows, blushing pinks, and whites. From stargazer lilies and tiger lilies to daylilies and calla lilies, we love them all.

3. Orchids

Perhaps the most exotic of all flowers, orchids have a unique beauty, as they all feature different shapes, sizes, and colors. Orchids have a variety of symbolic meanings, which include glorious femininity, exotic beauty, thoughtfulness, refinement, and mature charm. They make a perfect gift for any of the special women in your life.

4. Hydrangeas

Hydrangeas feature bulbous blooms of small flower clusters. Their colors range from white and green to light pinks, blues, lavenders, and deep purples. They symbolize gratitude for being understood, making them a wonderful addition to a bouquet for a close friend or confidant.

5. Alstroemeria

Alstroemeria flowers are often overlooked, but they’re incredibly popular thanks to their interesting, tiger-stripe petal markings and variety of colors. They’re available in several variations and combinations of yellows, whites, pinks, salmon, orange, and red. This flower of friendship also symbolizes wealth and prosperity.

What Your Favorite Flower Says About You

Flowers all have different symbolic significance. Some people also believe that a person’s favorite flower reveals something about their personality. Violet lovers, for example, are said to be witty and reserved, while lilac fans are nostalgic. Tulips admirers value family above everything else, and those who choose daisies as their favorite have a spirit for adventure. People who love orchids are supposedly mysterious and keep a close circle of friends.

How Do I Order Flowers?

When choosing a floral arrangement, don’t forget to think about the meaning of your flowers, your relationship to the recipient, and the occasion. All flowers are beautiful, so it’s hard to go wrong, but we recommend reserving all-white bouquets for sympathy and red roses for romantic relationships and occasions. When in doubt, choose a bouquet that catches or your eye or one that contains your recipient’s favorite colors.
