The Best Hospital Flowers For You! April 20, 2016 05:10

Flowers are always in order to send to your dear friend or loved one in the hospital.  They bring encourage and life to their current situation, giving them the hope that they need the most.  It is amazing what those beautiful gifts from mother nature can do.

Your recipient is going to be looking at these flowers every day that they are being cared for there.  You want the flowers to be exactly what your loved one needs.  With so many flowers to choose from, and because it is hospital that you are sending them to, it can make it difficult to decide which ones fits best. Here are just some of the Best Hospital Flowers that will certainly supply joy to their hearts and brighten their day!

Low Scent Flowers
- Low scented flowers are best to select when sending flowers to the hospital.  Strong scents can be noticed the moment a nurse or doctor enters the patient's room.  Some scents can be too strong in a small, enclosed space.  Smells sometime make patients nauseous, which can create the opposite effect you were hoping for.  Some low scented flowers include alstroemeria, calla lilies, gerber daisies, birds of paradise and amaryllis.  Also, avoid the small daffodils called narcissus as they have a strong scent as well.

Low Pollen Flowers - In the spring and summer time, pollen is one thing to watch out for when sending your hospital flowers.  Therefore, you want to send flowers with low pollen.  Give flowers with low pollen, such as tulips, daffodils and hydrangeas.  Roses are also a great choice, as well as carnations and chrysanthemums because their pollen is held within the flower.  Also, lilies can be purchased with the pollen removed, but varieties other than alstroemeria and calla lilies tend to be heavily scented.

Low Maintenance Flowers - You don't want your recipient to have to heavily maintain their flowers.  Select flowers that do not require special attention, such as indirect light or those that cannot be near air conditioning vents.  Flowers needing daily water changes or removal of quickly wilted blooms and soft stems are not good choices.  Roses have strong woody stems that can go several days without a change of water.  When outer rose petals begin to sag, simply pluck them off revealing fresh layers of petals and reviving the look for the arrangement.  Alstroemeria is a great option, yet they will need frequent water changes.
