Five Favorite Flowers that Always Bring Joy

Beautiful flowers enrich all our lives! Research shows that the flowers we select to display in our homes say much about the kind of person we are. The floral designers at Bice’s Florist love to share our favorite flowers with you. Your personal sense of style comes out when you choose flowers that represent the unique qualities of your home.


Beautiful, full flowers with multi-layered petal heads, dahlias are one of our favorite flowers. Symbolizing commitment, inner strength and standing out from the crowd, dahlias are easy to grow. Native to Mexico and South America, dahlias are now grown in many places in the United States. With their many sizes and varieties, dahlias can be the focal point or add interest to almost any arrangement.


Available in so many varieties and colors, roses are romantic flowers. Yellow roses symbolize friendship and joy while white roses are symbolic of innocence and purity and red roses of love and beauty. With their classic fragrance and abundance, we love using roses in our bouquets. In our Country Splendor arrangement, vibrant, yellow roses are joined with chrysanthemums in a unique vase. The bright colors will add cheer to any home. With so many hues to choose from, the rose is sure to be one of your favorite flowers too.


Classic lilies come in many varieties and always add elegance and dignity. Lilies often represent kindness and compassion. Traditionally used in more formal settings such as wedding bouquets and funeral arrangements, lilies promote a sign of respect. The day lily is perfect for showcasing in displays such as our Fall Blush bouquet. Surrounded by rich textures and gorgeous peach-colored lilies, this bouquet will bring a touch of autumn to your home. Other varieties of lilies that we use include the stargazer lily and calla lilies.

Spider Mums

When leaves start to fall, our thoughts turn to autumn. The spider mum, with its long, curling petals is often hardy and long lasting making it the perfect flower to withstand the cooler fall temperatures. Representing cheerfulness and optimism, spider mums are the typical choice of flower for an autumn arrangement. Found in a variety of colors, these flowers are among our favorites!


One of the favorite flowers around the world, carnations symbolize many things according to their color. While white carnations represent innocence and pure love, red carnations represent true love and admiration. Pink carnations are often used to represent motherhood. Our Fall Brights bouquet includes yet another color of miniature carnations, orange, to symbolize autumn in all its glory.


Also known as the Peruvian Lily, Alstroemeria is a lovely, delicate flower found in shades of white, orange, pink, red and purple. Both the Country Splendor and Fall Brights arrangements include alstroemeria as a vital part of the display. Meaning friendship, wealth and prosperity, many people call the alstroemeria a favorite bloom.


Known for its round flowerhead, the hydrangea comes in a variety of colors. According to Eastern tradition, each color has a different meaning. Pink hydrangeas represent feminine vitality and tend to grow best in alkaline soil. Blue hydrangeas, grown in acidic soil, represent regret while white hydrangeas symbolize purity and innocence. Harvest Sunshine, with bright orange hydrangea and yellow roses, is an exquisite bouquet contained in a glass vase. With so many colors and meanings, hydrangeas are sure to become one of your favorite flowers too.
