While flowers are often used to mark a very special and joyous occasion, they are also often sent to mark a more somber and sad occasion, with many people buying appropriate flowers for sympathy to mark a sad event. Flowers can be a highly effective way to express your sympathy in a number of sad events and circumstances, such as bereavement, funerals, illness, etc. However, it is important to realize that there are certain flowers that are more suited to these occasions than others and therefore you should choose your floral options carefully.

1st in Flowers is known for its bouquets, gift baskets, baked goods, fast worldwide delivery, and more, but as we mentioned last week, we also have a wide variety of plants for house and office, many of which can last for multiple seasons, or years, compared to the lovely, yet transient flower. One of our bestsellers is the Ficus Bush, that hardy plant which actually comes from a genus of about 850 species of woody trees, shrubs, vines, and more which, together, are known as fig trees, or figs. (From “Ficus” — and vice versa!) You won’t be harvesting figs in your office from these plants (unless you plan working there a really long time, and have some place to transplant the original!), but popular houseplant varieties include the rubber plant, which can go a few days between waterings, in case you forget, and a small “Weeping Fig,” which can sometimes grow to six feet tall. Remember they don’t like it to dip below fifty degrees, though, so keep things cozy! And to cozy up to all the different plants we deliver, view our plant selection today!

All kosher, and all ready to help you celebrate a new year, or later in the year, whether it’s Hanukkah, Passover, or any other time.

As we continue our survey of state flowers, and what they represent, we skip to the other end of the alphabet, from last week’s Arkansas to this week’s Wyoming, whose state flower is the Indian Paintbrush. We moved it ahead in the queue simply because September is often called “Indian Summer,” that echo or coda to summer’s warm temperatures, when the warmth can still linger in the atmosphere, yet there are whispers of change and new seasons in the air, too. The Indian Paintbrush is also called “Prairie Fire,” and grows all over the west. Native Americans used them as a condiment, and the health benefits can be similar to garlic, if eaten in small amounts. Too much can be toxic! The Indian Paintbrush was designated by Wyoming in 1917 and grows best on slopes, arid plains, and in juniper woodlands. If you like fiery red in your flowers, the way Wyoming’s forefathers and foremothers did, check out ourselectionofredflowers which we can deliver — sometimes the same day, or the next — in locales all over the West, the U.S., and the world.
