If you want to give flowers to someone during springtime, you’ll probably have an easy time finding traditional spring blooms like lilies, daffodils, and tulips. But, what if you want to send a bouquet or an arrangement that’s a bit different? What if your idea of the ideal floral gift is something unexpected and hard to come by?
There are quite a few spring flowers that perfectly represent the newness of spring because they’re fresh and unusual. When you want to impress with flowers that are special because of their surprise factor, consider the following:
The milky “White Beauty” fawn lily is a gorgeous flower to add to any spring bouquet or arrangement. It has leaves that are molted, like a fawn, and it features white flowers that seem to open up to the sun. Once in a while, you’ll find yellow-flowered fawn lilies called “Pagodas.”
Oriental poppies are beautiful, orange crepe paper-like flowers that can be stunning focal points in spring arrangements and even summer bouquets. These flowers put on an extraordinary show, and after they’re done flowering they fold up and remain dormant until they show themselves again come fall.
If you want to give a graceful, pretty, and pastel-colored flower for spring, choose the Chinese hellebore. This beauty comes in a light pink hue, and it looks amazing on its own or combined with stark white flowers. It’s a hardier bloom than many think too. It does well in wet, cold, and dry conditions.
If you can’t find any of these flowers near you, consider ordering them online. You’ll surely be able to find a florist somewhere who can deliver them to your gift recipient for you.
