When you receive news about a family member or friend being in the hospital, you want to immediately let them know that you are thinking of them and let them know that you wish them a quick recovery all the while lifting their spirits. Sending get-well flowers to a loved one is the best way to do all these – and brighten up the hospital room, to boot.
The Best Options for Get-Well Flowers
These perennial garden classics are available year round and have large, lush blooms that are certain to please anyone. They are elegant and beautiful and have a strong, unforgettable perfume.

Gerbera Daisies are thought of as happy, bright, and cheerful blooms. They symbolize new beginnings, hope, and prosperity. They send the right message of optimism to a loved one who is sick and probably feeling weary and listless.
How to Choose the Perfect Flowers
Your loved one is likely to appreciate whatever get-well flowers you send.
However, there are some tips you may want to consider if you want your floral gift to be nothing less than perfect.
Choose cheerful and bright colors.
Some people tend to think that flowers that have subtle or somber colors are more appropriate to send somebody who is sick.
Studies show, however, that patients are more likely to appreciate flowers that have warm and vibrant colors. Bright and cheery hues tend to lift the spirits and make your loved one happier.
Choose flowers that last long after they are cut.
If your loved one has to stay in the hospital longer than a couple of days, you’d want to give flowers that will stay beautiful longer. Go for sturdy flowers with a long vase life. Chrysanthemums, Orchids, Alstroemeria and Carnations are good choices.
Choose flowers that are in season.
Help your loved one stay in touch with the world outside. Bring flowers that are in bloom at the present time.
Choose blooms that are easy to take care of.
Choose flowers that do not require much tending. Choose those that continue to flourish and remain beautiful even with just a bit of floral food and water.
Do not give specialty, hard to care for blooms. Your friend may not have the time or strength to nurture them.
Pollen is likely to trigger asthma episodes or allergies. It can even make some ailments worse.
A loved one who is in the hospital is likely to feel down in the dumps. Send a get-well soon message with beautiful flowers.
