First, a note about the color red: Why is red such an exciting flower color?

Red has inspired humans for a long time going all the way back to the oldest cave paintings being made with red clay. Since then, the color red has taken on a whole host of different meanings throughout history, such as love, passion, romance, life, fortune, beauty, power, danger, lust, adventure, luck, and, more deeply rooted symbolism, the blood of Christ. When paired with other colors, red can have significant symbolism, too. For example, when combined with green, red represents the Christmas holiday, and when paired with white and blue, red becomes a symbol of American patriotism.

The vibrant splash of color emanating from red flowers is impossible to go unnoticed. See how uplifting it is to see an arrangement of beautiful, joyful red blooms at home or as a gift.
