Flower allergies can keep even the most enthusiastic flower lover from enjoying their favorite blooms. Low-pollen flowers for those who have flower allergies can be a great option, depending on the severity of their allergies. Remember that, while sending low-pollen flowers to allergy sufferers is a great thought, you want to be absolutely sure that the allergy sufferer has only mild allergies, because those who suffer form severe allergies can become sick if exposed to even low-pollen flowers. Here are a few low-pollen flowers that will work well for mild allergy sufferers.
1. Hydrangeas – Hydrangea bouquets, like this stunning Vera Wang, arrangement are not only gorgeous, but are low in pollen. With lush, full poms, the hydrangea is a great option because just a few stems will produce a stunning bouquet.
2. Peruvian Lilies – Peruvian lilies are petite, delicate pink flowers that look cheerful and airy when bundled together in one big bouquet. Their light pink petals look gorgeous as contrast against their vibrant green leaves.
3. Irises – Irises are a gorgeous addition to any bouquet, whether alone or mixed with other flowers. Available in a range of vibrant blues and purples, the Iris is a cheerful flower that will brighten any space it graces. Irises are commonly paired with roses, such as this beautiful bouquet of red roses and irises, and while many roses, such as hybrids, are low-pollen, a few are not. It is a good idea to check with your florist ahead of time to learn the exact name of the rose that they are using in the bouquet, so that you can read up on it and ensure that it is low-pollen.
