We’re Thankful for These 5 Flowers

At Moravian Florist, serving Staten Island and the surrounding areas, flowers are always in season and in style. Our florists truly believe in the year-round power of flowers! They’re not only beautiful and sweetly fragrant, but they also have a variety of incredible health benefits that people can enjoy just from spending time around flowers. Flowers have the power to lower stress, improve your mood, strengthen memory, and they have even been shown to help speed recovery times for people ailing from illness, injury, or surgical recovery.

With so many good reasons to surround yourself with flowers, why wait for a special occasion or holiday to order them?

Our Most Popular Flowers

Flowers gain popularity thanks to their unique beauty, symbolic meaning, and sweet aromas. The most popular flowers also depend on when and where you live. Lotus flowers and camellias, for example, are two of the most popular flowers in East Asia, but they’re not that commonly used in other parts of the world. There was also a time when tulips were so beloved that they were valuable enough to use as currency. At that time, they comprised the majority of Holland’s economy, too. Although you’ll find plenty of tulips in Mother’s Day and Easter bouquets today, you probably won’t hear about anyone paying thousands of dollars for a single tulip bulb.

You already probably associate red roses with romance and love, but did you know that each color of rose has its own meaning? For example, pink roses symbolize admiration, blue roses symbolize the mysterious or unattainable, lavender roses represent love at first sight, orange roses embody passion, yellow ones are for friendship, and white represents purity. If you’re not sure how you feel, choose a bouquet of mixed roses.

We love hydrangeas, as their snowball-like blooms feature pretty, delicate flowers. They bloom in shades of white, green, pink, lavender, and blue, ranging from pastels to saturated hues. Hydrangea represents gratitude for being understood, which makes them the perfect floral gift for a confidant or close friend.

Orchids bloom in countless varieties. One of our favorites is the pink and white cymbidium orchid. Orchids are the perfect gift for any special woman, as they represent glorious femininity, refinement, thoughtfulness, and exotic beauty.

peach and pink and yellow Alstroemeria


Alstroemeria’s often overlooked, but it’s one of our favorite flowers. This bloom features tissue-paper-like petals in a variety of hues, color combinations, and contrasting speckles. They represent wealth and prosperity and are also considered the flower of friendship.

We love lilies for their delicate, yet exotic beauty. They’re available in several varieties such as calla lilies, stargazer, and Asiatic lilies. They bloom in a whole rainbow of colors, ranging from snowy white and creams, peaches, yellows, oranges, and pinks to deep burgundies and aubergine. Depending on the variety and color, lilies can represent sweetness, purity, or passion.

What Your Favorite Flower Says About You

Different flowers have various symbolic meanings, but some people think a person’s favorite flower can also reveal something about their personality. For example, lilac lovers are also thought to have a soft spot for nostalgia. Those who adore baby’s breath are young at heart. Fans of violets are witty, yet reserved, and tulip devotees are also said to be devoted to their families.

Ordering Flowers Is Super Easy

Smiles for You

When choosing a bouquet for someone other than yourself, it’s important to consider your relationship with your recipient, the type of occasion, and the sentiment you want your floral gift to convey. We recommend saving all-white arrangements for somber occasions, as they typically symbolize sympathy and remembrance. It’s also a good idea to reserve red roses for romantic relationships and occasions. If you’re not sure what’s appropriate, a bouquet featuring a variety of colors and flowers is always a great choice!
