Why We Should Take Pride in UK Flowers

Jul 24, 2008
Traditional UK flowers incorporate a whole host of flowers grown in the UK. Fragrant arrangements packed with an abundance of freesias and dappled with fern leaves displayed in pretty wicker baskets are a very popular choice which is ideal for sending to people of all ages and give a true English ambience as the room fills with enchanting scents. A modern approach florists use to capture these charming traditional UK flowers include designs which utilise the dexterity of freesias by displaying them in contemporary vases with chunky bases which offers an interesting contrast which compliments modern homes.

In the spring the traditional UK flowers include the ever popular daffodil, highly scented narcissi and tulips. Individual hand-tied bunches of daffodils of the same variety, most commonly the bright yellow trumpet daffodil, bring a real sense of warmth and cheerfulness to any room in the house. Vibrant tulips and gerbera awaken the senses looking absolutely delightful when packed tightly into a vase or jug. For a more contemporary look to these traditional UK flowers, single tulips placed in three identical vases gives a trendy and fashionable appeal.

Cornwall growers provide a diversity of traditional flowers which are traditionally associated with woodlands in spring, they are commercially growing flowers such as bluebells to bring a protected species into homes across the country. Themed arrangements depicting peaceful strolls through the leafy glades of the English countryside are becoming increasingly popular in the choice of traditional UK flowers to send or display.

Dainty posies arranged with subtle pink roses, stephanotis, chrysanthemums, carnations highlighted with lilac peonies all provided by UK flower growers are typical arrangements sent as 'Thank you' or 'Get well' flowers which are predominantly aimed for women who appreciate the sheer beauty of traditional UK flowers.

Elegant vases holding tall flowers have a real English cottage garden appeal, creating dramatic displays using seasonal UK summer flowers such as larkspur, delphiniums, lilies, aquilegias, phlox and of course English roses all in the most subtle tones of cool blues and pretty pinks. Local florists will amalgamate any UK summer flower to add interest and individualism to your design.

Traditional quintessential UK flowers are roses with their many varieties and colours. Florists can create designs which incorporate roses or use them on their own to construct the most striking displays. Large headed cream or pale pink roses teamed with dark green hedgerow foliage arranged in low vases or baskets are a fabulous choice of flower to send on birthdays and Mother's Day.

Romantic red English roses are undoubtedly the most traditional UK flower to send on Valentine's Day. Single long stemmed blooms with a bow strategically tied onto the stem are an extremely popular choice for women to send to men, while huge bunches of deep or crimson red roses make a real statement of love.

Traditional UK flowers used in hand-tied bouquets, comprising of vibrant oranges and striking yellow provide a blaze of colour to brighten the senses in Autumn, with chrysanthemums, lilies and carnations all grown in the UK.
