Top 10 Allergy-Friendly Flowers January 10, 2019 06:16

Los Angeles FloristOver 50 million Americans currently suffer from moderate to severe allergies. But just because the special people in your life have to deal with a runny nose and watery eyes, doesn't mean that they don't deserve flowers.

Still, we know that you want to send them allergy-friendly bouquets that will look beautiful for any occasion -- without causing someone to sneeze and sniffle.

So, what are the ten best types of flowers to send to an allergy sufferer, or just someone with an especially sensitive nose?

Keep on reading this post to find out.

1. Roses

You might be surprised to see roses on a list of allergy-friendly flowers, given how famous they are for their signature scent.

However, because they have a low pollen count, a beautiful bouquet of roses won't cause the recipient to have to deal with itchy eyes and a runny nose.

Plus, they're also one of the longest-lasting flowers on this list, and they bloom perfectly in nearly every season.

That's just one more reason to say it with roses.

2. Tulips

Tulips have long been heralded as one of the best flowers to include in cheerful and festive bouquets, especially at the start of the warmer months.

But few people realize that they're also a wonderful option to include in bouquets for people with a sensitive nose.

Tulips can add color to any arrangement, and they come in lots of different varieties. You can work with parrot tulips, the Red Cross tulip, French tulips, and even tulips in stunning pinks and purples.

The sky is the limit when it comes to this flower.

3. Orchids

While orchids do contain a bit of sticky pollen, they still work as allergy-friendly flowers and plants because the pollen hardly ever actually becomes airborne.

We think that orchids make a stunning addition to a wedding bouquet, a dinner table arrangement, or even a romantic surprise for a loved one.

And, like roses, orchids also last for a long time.

4. Daffodils

Is there anything sweeter than a bright yellow daffodil in a floral arrangement?

We don't think so.

Not only will daffodils put a smile on every face, but they also produce a very limited amount of pollen.

Tuck them into your spring and summer bouquets for a pop of color.

5. Carnations

Carnations are one of the most common flower types used in arrangements for numerous reasons.

They're affordable, stunning, and can help to add layers to texture and volume to smaller arrangements. Plus, they're completely free of allergens and have a lighter scent.

They also come in a wide variety of colors, including bright red, white, and even blush pink.

This makes them perfect for almost every type of arrangement.

6. Hydrangeas

It's no secret that hydrangeas are a favorite flower of Southerners -- and it's certainly not difficult to see why.

Hydrangeas are especially popular for those who are looking to make a statement with their centerpieces, which is why you see them included in so many weddings and special events.

These are the perfect flowers for those who aren't afraid to go bold, no matter the occasion.

Plus, they're completely free from pollen.

7. Irises

When you're on the hunt for a flower that comes with a sense of refinement and elegance, look no further than the iris.

The stunning yellow and purple coloring of this flower makes a statement in any bouquet.

Plus, they'll look their best for about a week, so they're ideal for arrangements that you need to shine for a longer period of time.

Get them in the springtime.

8. Snapdragons

Looking for some unexpected flowers to add to your arrangement?

Sending something to someone who always seems to think outside of the box?

If so, then you simply must include snapdragons. These have a low pollen count, and they're great for adding some serious height on any type of arrangements.

They can last about five days with the right care, and they're quickly becoming a major trend in the flower world.

9. Peonies

It seems like you can't go on Instagram these days without seeing countless images of peonies.

These flowers are all the rage, but the good news is that they're also a great option to send to those who deal with allergies.

We just can't get enough of the beautiful pink tones of peonies, and we know that the influencers and trendsetters in your life will certainly agree.

10. Hyacinth

Are you looking for a flower that's safe to give to those who suffer from allergies, but that still gives off a beautiful fragrance?

If so, then look no further than the spring hyacinth.

We love the pastel shades of this bloom and those you're giving the flowers to will love that they can last for over a week. If you want to create a truly allergy-friendly arrangement, then we suggest pairing hyacinth with some bright tulips.
