Some of our Most Popular Flowers

Flowers get popular for unique beauty, exception fragrance, and symbolic meaning. Flower popularity also depends on where and when you live. For example, camellias and lotus flowers are widely used in East Asia, but not a lot in other parts of the world. There was also a time when tulips were highly valuable. So valuable, in fact, they were used as currency and became a status symbol. People were willing to pay tens of thousands of dollars for the most prized bulbs.

It’s not easy for a florist to choose their favorite flowers, but we chose these five based on their popularity, beauty, and versatility in a range of floral designs.

red orange and yellow alstroemerias in a vase


Alstroemeria is the official flower of friendship. Its name may not be familiar, but if you pay close attention, you’ll start noticing alstroemeria in most arrangements you see. These blooms are elegant and long-lasting. They feature speckled petals in a variety of colors including yellow, white, orange, peach, red, and pink.

pink roses lavender liles and greens in cube vase


We love roses for their elegance and because they bloom in so many shades! Red roses are synonymous with romance, but did you know that other colors have special significance, too? For example, pink roses represent admiration, orange roses symbolize passion, and lavender roses are for a love at first sight.

3 sunflowers and red carnations and greens in vase


With their big, bright-yellow petals, sunflowers bring sunshine to people. They symbolize admiration, dedication, and pure thoughts, and they’re perfect for autumn or vibrantly colored bouquets.

yellow pin cushion protea and red alstroemeria arrangement


We love protea because they add texture and vibrant color to bouquets, in addition to real drama! The two most popular varieties are pincushion protea and king protea. Both symbolize courage, resourcefulness, and transformation.

Playful Daisies


Lilies are one of the most elegant and exotic flowers available. There are a variety of different types, including Asiatic lilies and calla lilies, and they bloom in every color except blue. Depending on the color and type, they can represent purity, sweetness, faithfulness, good luck, passion, and prosperity.

What Your Favorite Flowers Represent

Flowers have their own unique meanings, and some also think that a person’s favorite flower can reveal something about their personality. If you love roses, you’re likely to have the ability to bring out the best in others. Those who adore lilies have a calming effect. If you love sunflowers, you’re probably a cheerful person, and if you’re a fan of daisies, you might have an adventurous spirit.

Ordering Flowers Is Easy

When choosing flowers for someone, it’s important to consider your relationship, the occasion, and what you want your flowers to say. We recommend only selecting red roses for romantic relationships and occasions. It’s also smart to reserve all-white floral arrangements for somber occasions, as they represent remembrance and sympathy. If you’re not sure what’s appropriate, a seasonal bouquet or an arrangement with a variety of colors and flowers are always wonderful options!
