Heliconia and Calla lilies
Also known as the lobster claw or wild plantain, the Heliconia can grow anywhere from 3 to 30 feet in height. The bracts hide the true flowers inside and come in a wide assortment of color combinations. These towering blooms were named after Mount Helicon, the home of the 9 muses of arts and sciences in Greek mythology.
Although called a lily, calla lilies are not actual lilies. They are perennial bulbs that bloom in late spring. Named after the Greek word calla, which means beautiful, these flowers symbolize purity, faithfulness, and holiness. Calla lilies are beautiful flowers that can add a touch of elegance to any flower arrangement.
Birds of paradise and Anthuriums
When it comes to exotic flowers, the birds of paradise always top the list. Just as its name suggests, these flowers look like the beaks of brightly colored birds. The plants can grow to a height of 4 feet and flourish in warm indoor temperature.
Anthuriums are low maintenance blooms that can last for months. Although they look like flowers, they’re actually leaves that shield the miniature flowers growing on the spike. The heart-shaped leaves symbolize hospitality, making them great housewarming gifts.
Orchids and Passion flowers
Nothing can quite compare to the beauty and elegance of orchids. These delicate flowers belong to the largest plant family in the world, with over 30,000 species to choose from. Even though there are thousands of different types of orchids out there, seeing one in full bloom is enough to make you fall in love.
The passion flower is best known for its intricate filament and petal arrangement. They’re not just pretty to look at. The plants are also known to have medicinal value. The passion flower fruit, when prepared as a tea, is believed to be an effective treatment for alleviating anxiety and stress.
Protea and Bromeliads
The protea is a symbol of courage and diversity and is associated with transformation and change in ancient mythology. These blooms come in different hues and textures that complement large monstera leaves perfectly in a tropical bouquet.
While not a flower per se, bromeliads give an exotic touch to an otherwise drab room. They make excellent garden plants since they’re quite easy to care for and are extremely long lasting. When they bloom, they produce rosettes in different patterns and colors. Fun fact: the pineapple is actually a type of bromeliad.
No matter the occasion, these blooms are guaranteed to add a taste of the tropics to your flower arrangements and home. Have a specific theme in mind? Contact us today for customized floral bouquets and arrangements. Our flower experts here at Fiesta Flowers will be more than happy to help.
