What are your favorite cut flowers and why?

Asked by marinelife (61923points) February 18th, 2013

My favorites are oriental lilies like Stargazer, Enchantment or Casa Blanca., because they smell fantastic (they can perfume a whole room) and they last a long time.

But for Valentine’s Day I got a bouquet of various pastel roses: yellow, peach, orange that I really liked.

What’s your favorite and why?

I love Gerbera Daisies. My grandma said they are a peasant flower, she seemed less than impressed I used them for my wedding. I love all the colors they come in and there is something sweet about them, unpretentious.

Roses are my least favorite to receive, they tend to die quickly.

I like a tropical bouquet also for the odd shapes and colors.

The fragrance of a flower has little to do with whether I like them or not.

I should mention I am not overly wowed by flowers in the first place. I don’t keeo fresh flowers in my home, I prefer you don’t arrive at my house with a bunch in your hand, and I much prefer my husband spend money on something else. But, I appreciate the thought if you do give me flowers.

I love, love, love flowers of all shapes and sizes. Some of my favorites are gladiiolus. My aunt grew them when I was a young child and I loved her like she was my own mother. She was unique and strong and died too young of cancer.

I also love peonies. They may be my favorite. I love the ants that are needed for them them to grow. I love the smell, the look, the way they feel.

I love wisteria and the way it crawls across everything in its path and covers it with its unbelievable beauty.

@chyna, I just planted sunflower seeds (and zinnias) with my granddaughter. They are growing like weeds. I just had to transplant them into a bigger container today.

Tulips because they make me happy, orchids because they are elegant and gorgeous.

< This photo was taken Friday, I’ll keep you posted. The seeds were planted Wednesday. Unbelievable and extremely fun with a 3-year old helping me.

@marinelife Stargazer lilies are impressive

OK these are more flower garden but Begonias{B6D21294–82E9–4B7F-80B7–0D1829E0CA6A}&v= always stop me in my tracks.

Recently been looking at getting some ginger for my house. And Coleus’s{B6D21294–82E9–4B7F-80B7–0D1829E0CA6A}&v= don’t even need to bloom to be outstanding.

I love Gerbera Daisies, and I love forcing hyacinths. (sp). Coming home on a cold nasty day and smelling that fragrance when you open the door is amazing.

@bkcunningham your potted seedlings look like they might enjoy some more light, they look somewhat leggy : ^)
