Seasons come and seasons go – and, naturally, the same goes for flowers. All year round, people love fresh cut flowers, but some are more popular than others depending on the season. But why exactly is that?
For one, some flowers thrive in certain seasonal weather conditions, which makes them easier to grow and care for. Two, there are many seasonal flowers with historical or cultural ties to a particular time of year—think tulips and spring, sunflowers and summer, and pansies and fall. And three, some flowers are just objectively more beautiful and appealing than others, leading to a higher level of popularity, no matter the season. Combine those three factors and you’ll get a pretty good idea of which flowers are most popular during each season.
And just like flowers, we don’t want you living in the dark. So we’re going to shine a light on the most popular seasonal flowers for every time of year. That way, you’ll know exactly which flowers are in bloom and in style!
The Most Popular Fresh Cut Flowers for Spring
Springtime is a happy time for the majority of flowers in the world. And thanks to the warming temperature and increased sunshine beaming down, spring flowers are able to suck up more energy and sprout forth in large numbers.
But what makes one flower more popular than another during spring? It’s simple: the best spring flowers are the ones that just express those delicious springtime feelings of renewal and joy better than the others.
With that said, here are some of the best spring flowers:
The Most Popular Fresh Cut Flowers for Summer
When summer finally rolls around, you can pretty much guarantee that most flowers will be in full bloom. Gardens this time of year will be downright stunning—a mix of vibrant hues, rich fragrances, and buzzing life all delighting the senses at one time. Ugh… Hurry up and come back to us, summer! We miss you!
But while your flowers will love this time of the year, the suffocating temperatures and the sun beating down on your blooms means that more care is required, at least when it comes to watering. If you don’t give your summer flowers enough refreshing H2O, they’ll look droopy and lifeless at best, and at worst, they’ll be making a premature trip to flower heaven (don’t let that happen!). Stay on top of watering!
Here are summer’s most popular flowers:
The Most Popular Fresh Cut Flowers for Fall
If we’re being completely honest, it kind of sucks watching our beautiful flowers go from lively and colorful to dull and lifeless as fall arrives and the weather cools down. But, it doesn’t have to be that way! In fact, there are loads of gorgeous flowers that can keep your garden or home brilliantly hued even through the cooling autumn months.
Sure, you’re going to have fewer options at your disposable than in spring or in summer, but as far as we’re concerned, gardening and keeping fresh flowers indoors should be a year-round affair. And with these popular autumn flowers, it’s definitely one hundred percent possible:
- Balloon flowers
The Most Popular Fresh Cut Flowers for Winter
When the cold of winter finally arrives (as Jon Snow has continued to warn us about…), your flower power is going to be drained. But it’s not all doom and gloom, because some flowers are actually able to survive deep into the winter months – at least in warmer climates, such as Southern California or the Deep South. In these places, snow and frost—the bane of flowers’ existence—won’t take hold.
And you know what that means… If you live in a warm enough location, you can grow flowers all year round (woo!). And if not, don’t worry! You can always just order a gorgeous, handcrafted Bouq online from us! Our growers live in locations where growing blooms even in winter isn’t a problem. Honestly, these days you can get your hands on fresh flowers whenever and wherever!
That said, here are the most popular flowers during winter:
