Although we’re most thankful for them at Thanksgiving time, flowers are always in season and in style at Busch’s Florist & Greenhouse, serving Jefferson City and the surrounding areas. We truly believe in the year-round, everyday appeal of flowers. They’re not only beautiful and fragrant; they have the power to impart amazing health benefits to people. Just by spending time around flowers, you can improve your mood, lower stress, and boost your memory. They even help people recovering from surgery, illness, or injury to get well more quickly.
With so many reasons to love flowers, there’s no reason why you should wait for a holiday or special occasion to enjoy them! Why not order today?
Flowers Our Expert Floral Designers Love the Most
Yellow Calla Lilies
“I’m thankful for the yellow calla lily. It has the meaning that reminds me of nothing more than Thanksgiving. It represents faith, joy, growth, and thankfulness — everything I see in Thanksgiving.”
White Dahlia with Purple Solidago
“Dahlia with solidago! Why? The dahlia comes in all colors, like personalities. They are hardy and healthy, which we are all thankful for at Thanksgiving! Mixing in bright, sunny, sassy, and cheerful solidago, which represents the innocence and joy children, makes for the perfect floral gathering to count our blessings and be thankful.”
Purple Fountain Grass
“Purple fountain grass, for me, because it is warm, soft, and fuzzy. With a few pricks, it’s a tad dramatic, just like the weather and families over the holidays. Otherwise, purple fountain grass is just fall for me: the smell, colors, and texture make me feel at home, and I love using them in everything.”
White Cushion Mums
“Mine would be white mums because they remind me of fresh fallen snow and family fun.”
“Stock! Because it smells amazing!”
“I don’t have a favorite. I love all flowers because they all make me smile.”
The Most Popular Flowers
All flowers are unique and beautiful, which makes it tough to choose a favorite. When it’s hard to choose the right flowers for a floral arrangement, you can either turn to their symbolic meaning for inspiration or you can choose some of the most popular blooms! Roses are a timeless classic that bloom in a rainbow of colors. Hydrangeas are also a popular choice, as their clusters of flowers look like big, puffy snowballs. We recommend peonies, gladiolas, orchids, and sunflowers, too.
If you want to include one of the most popular flowers from history, then look no further than the tulip! Tulips were once highly valued, so much so that they were used as currency and comprised a major portion of Holland’s economy. No one’s willing to paying thousands of dollars for a single tulip bulb these days, but everyone still loves their vibrant pops of color!
Your Favorite Flower’s Symbolic Meaning
If you have a favorite flower, you might be surprised to know that it could possibly reveal a little something about your personality. For example, violet lovers are thought to be reserved and witty, while those who prefer daisies are said to be adventurous.
Order Flowers for Someone
When ordering flowers for someone else, it’s important to think about your relationship, the occasion, and the sentiment you want to convey with your floral gift. We recommend saving red roses for romantic relationships and occasions only. It’s also a good idea to reserve all-white floral arrangements for somber occasions, as they usually symbolize sympathy and remembrance. If you’re not sure what type of arrangement to select, choosing a season bouquet or a design that features a variety of flowers and colors is usually a safe choice.
