Blooms for Your Besties

Blooms for Your Besties

International Day of Friendship is July 30 and Garden of Eden wants to help you celebrate! A beautiful and caring way to show a friend you appreciate them is by sending them an arrangement that specifically symbolizes friendship.

These seven types of flowers convey emotions that evoke special friendships and what arrangement would work best for each.

  1. Yellow Roses

Yellow roses are a staple friendship flower. They symbolize friendship, happiness and new beginnings. Roses can be found worldwide blooming from late spring to fall, with major cultivation in regions like North America, Europe and Asia. With over 300 species of roses, they are the perfect flower for rekindling a friendly relationship. 

Make your friend’s day and send them a “Sunny Day Pitcher of Roses Bouquet.

  1. Alstroemerias

Known as a Peruvian lily, these flowers symbolize strong bonds between two people that transcends love, and celebrates strength and devotion to one another. Alstroemerias are perennials that are native to regions of South America like Chile and Brazil and bloom from late spring through early summer. Adding to the symbolism, these flowers have strong vase life, marking them the perfect flower for strong friendship bonds.

Nothing says devoted friendship like our “Alluring Alstroemeria Bouquet.”

  1. Daisies

Daisies are simple, charming flowers that are known for their bright and cheery appearance. These flowers represent innocence, loyalty and true friendship, perfect for expressing sincere and uncomplicated affection. They are found in temperate regions worldwide from early summer to fall, including North America, Europe and Asia.

We love the “Sunny Day Pitcher of Daisies” for a lighthearted Friendship Day gift.

  1. Sunflowers

Bright, yellow sunflowers are a cheery choice for celebrating friendship. These statement flowers are thought to symbolize adoration and loyalty. Though native to North America, sunflowers are now grown worldwide, particularly in regions with warm climates from midsummer to early fall. Sending a summertime sunflower bouquet is a wonderful way to remind someone you’re their forever friend. 

Our “Sunflower Splash” arrangement is a perfect gift to send to someone you love!

  1. Tulips

Tulips are the first flowers to bloom in spring, which means they represent renewal and hope. This means they’re another great flower choice for rekindling a friendship. Tulips, which bloom in early to late spring, are native to Central Asia and are extensively cultivated in the Netherlands. There are more than 100 different species of tulips, which means you’re bound to find a perfect tulip arrangement for this special occasion.

We adore the “Art Glass Garden Bouquet” prominently featuring tulips and other beautiful flowers.

  1. Orchids

If you’re looking for an exotic flower as a unique gift for a friend, orchids are for you! These elegant flowers are often associated with beauty and refinement. They are known for their unique shapes and long-lasting blooms and symbolize strength, luxury and enduring friendship. Orchids can bloom at different times depending on the species, but many bloom in late winter to spring. They are found in diverse climates worldwide, with the majority in tropical regions. These flowers are a sophisticated way to honor a cherished friend. 

A uniquely elegant gift for a friend would be our “Orchid & Succulent Garden.

  1. Lavenders

Lavender is a fragrant herb known for its calming properties and beautiful purple flowers. Because of its serene fragrance, it has been used for centuries to soothe in different ways. Lavender is native to the Mediterranean region but is now grown worldwide in temperate climates, blooming from late spring to early summer. These flowers symbolize devotion, serenity and calmness, making it a lovely choice for expressing a peaceful and lasting friendship. 

Give a calming gift to a friend with our “Lavender Bliss Bouquet.

Celebrate International Day of Friendship by gifting these beautiful flowers to the ones you share a special bond with. Not to mention, you can add chocolates, balloons or other fun favorites from the Garden of Eden to make your gift shine with friendship.
