Tropical Flowers are Summertime Treats

iStock_000009076514_reverseResizeRed roses are an iconic symbol of Valentine’s Day, and tulips are a sure sign of spring, but lush tropical flowers scream summertime like no other flowers can. Tropical flowers add bold color, magnificent height, and curious drama to any setting. These large, exotic flowers effortlessly transform any home or office into a beautiful island oasis.

Besides being easy to care for, these beautiful tropical flowers come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors. Here are few of our favorites:

Bird of Paradise – Also known as crane flowers, these exotic flowers are native to South Africa and symbolize freedom and magnificence. Inspired by their bright blue and orange flowers fanning from green bracts like a colorful bird in flight, they grow between three and five feet in height and typically have three to five “birds” inside each bract that bloom in succession.

– These magnificent tropical beauties feature large vibrant bracts in pink, red, orange, or yellow rising from sturdy towering stalks that can grow up to 20 feet in height. Native to Guyana, Costa Rica, Belize, Ecuador, Peru, and Brazil, heliconias symbolize great returns. Unlike bird-of-paradise, heliconias have tiny hidden flowers that won’t emerge from the cut stems – their beauty is in color and silhouette of the dramatic bracts.

iStock_000064940399_resizeGinger– Native to the Pacific Islands, Malaysia and Taiwan, ornamental gingers have large cone-shaped blooms that symbolize strength and pride. Although they come in a variety of colors, the red ginger flower is the one most often associated with the tropics. Because of their fragrance and beauty, the ginger flower can often attract bees, butterflies, and a variety of wild birds.

iStock_000026940007_resizeAnthurium – With their large open heart shaped face, anthuriums have come to symbolize hospitality and a deep romantic attraction. Originally from Columbia, they were brought to Hawaii in 1889 and have since become virtually synonymous with tropical islands. These lovely red flowers have a long vase life and thrive on the moisture and heat of a tropical environment. Although often seen in red with a bright yellow spadix, they’re also available in white, pink, peach, magenta, and green.

iStock_000068543911_resizeProtea – Named for Proteus, the Greek God who could change his form at will, proteas are an extraordinary group of flowers originally found only in South Africa and Australia. Proteas symbolize transformation, diversity, and courage, they’re available in an array of sizes, shapes, and colors – from pin cushions to imperial crowns in white, yellow, orange, and rose to crimson, magenta, and burgundy.

What is a Rouge Rose?

TrueRomanticRed roses have long been symbolic of love and romance, especially on Valentine’s Day, but have you ever stopped to think about where all these roses come from, and what makes an exceptional rose exceptional?

Roses come from all over the world in the form of over 100 different species. Commercially-grown roses are also found around the globe, but, the best ones come from Ecuador. Thanks to a rare combination of volcanic soil, ample water from the nearby Andes Mountains, and over 12 hours of sunlight every day, Ecuador is the perfect environment for growing the biggest and most beautiful roses on Earth. Among the finest of those Ecuadorian roses is the exclusive Black Label Rouge Rose. Known for its high petal count, and found only at Beneva Flowers, the Rouge has been Sarasota’s favorite rose for over a generation.

This time of year, it isn’t hard to find roses available for sale in a variety of different colors, sizes and price ranges. Some of those advertised ultra-cheap rose bouquets sound like a bargain – until you read the fine print, or see the flowers in person. Costly shipping and handling fees often negate the attractively low advertised price, and there is a likely chance that those bargain roses were the ones that were left after being picked over by the flower shops. There is a difference in roses – your valentine will be able to tell!

Rose-Hand-Comparrison-Rouge Rose-Hand-Comparrison-Standard

Don’t take a gamble on your valentine’s roses this year. Exceed their expectations and be known to their friends and co-workers as the one who only sends the very best. Let Beneva Flowers make you stand out from the crowd with their private label Rouge Roses. Make this Valentine’s Day one to remember.
