Our Favorite Flowers

At Boyd’s Flowers, serving Wilmington and the surrounding areas, flowers are always in-season and in-style. Flowers are always beautiful and smell great, but they also have a variety of health benefits that people enjoy just by being around them. Being around flowers has the power to boost your mood and lower stress. They can improve your memory and even help ailing patients heal more quickly. With so many great reasons to keep flowers around at all times, there’s no reason why you should wait for a special occasion or holiday to order!

Most Popular Flowers

The most popular flowers are so loved thanks to their unique beauty, fragrance, or symbolism. While some flowers, like roses and carnations, will always be in style, the popularity of others ebbs and flows depending on where and when you live. For example, tulips used to be so valuable, that they represented most of Holland’s economy and were even used as currency. We still love tulips, but no one’s paying tens of thousands of dollars for their bulbs.

At Boyd’s Flowers, our favorites include the flowers that are the most versatile and add loads of personality to our floral designs.

1. Sunflowers

Sunflowers Surprise

Sunflowers add powerful pops of sunny yellow around their deep-brown centers, and they’re one of our favorites to use in vibrant bouquets. Sunflowers have a few symbolic meanings including adoration, dedication, and pure thoughts. They can also sometimes represent haughtiness or false riches.

2. Roses

Red Roses

Red Roses

Roses are a classic that never goes out of style. They’re elegant and timeless and have a language of their own. Since roses bloom in a variety of colors, each color has its own symbolic meaning. Most people know red roses are for romance, but did you know that white roses symbolize purity, pink roses are for gentle feelings like admiration, lavender roses are for love at first sight, and orange roses represent passion?

3. Hydrangeas

Hydrangeas represent gratitude for being understood, which makes them perfect in a bouquet for a friend or confidant. Their blooming clusters of small flowers come in a variety of shades of pink, lavender, blue, and purple, in addition to white and green.

4. Snapdragons

Representing strength and graciousness, snapdragons are the perfect way to add height, texture, and excitement to a bouquet. They’re available in a variety of colors in both pastels and fully saturated hues, making them a versatile choice for any bouquet’s color story.

5. Bells of Ireland

Blue Mist

Bells of Ireland bloom in stalks of vibrant green. Many call their unique hue the color of money, and as a result, they’ve come to symbolize good luck and fortune. They’re a perfect element in a bouquet for just about any occasion, but especially in floral arrangements meant to wish someone good luck.

What Your Favorite Flower Means

Flowers all have their own symbolic meanings, and some people even believe that a person’s favorite flower reveals something about their personality. For example, people who love lilacs are thought to be nostalgic, while those who prefer tulips value their families above everything else. Daisy lovers supposedly have adventurous spirits, and violet admirers are reserved, yet witty.

How Do I Order Flowers for Someone?

When choosing a floral arrangement, it’s important to think about your relationship to the recipient, the reason for the gift, and what you want your flowers to say. We recommend reserving red roses for romantic relationships and all-white bouquets for sympathy. When in doubt, choose a bouquet that catches your eye or one in your recipient’s favorite colors. With Boyd’s Flowers, ordering flowers for someone is easy! Using our website, you can send flowers to just about any place. We also welcome you to stop by our flower shop for personalized assistance from an expert florist.
