First, a note about the color red: Why is red such an exciting flower color?

The color red has awed and inspired humankind since the prehistoric days when prehistoric tribes ground up red clay to add it to animals and other images they drew on cave walls. During the ancient period and up through the Medieval era, red was associated with Holy blood, life, war, wealth, beauty, power, danger, lust, and adventure, to name a few. Many of those meanings remain today along with some new ones, such as red combined with green represents Christmas in Western countries; red paired with blue and white symbolizes patriotism in the U.S.; red means good luck in China and Japan; and brides in Nepal and India wear red wedding gowns for wealth, luck, and prosperity.

The wonderfully bright burst of red color, with its intensity and vivacity, are impossible to ignore. Watch how adding red blooms to your home transforms the space, the ambiance, the mood, and the look.
