Look to Mother Nature to brighten and warm your home even during the coldest months with beautiful and radiant red flowers. Quickly and easily add instant energizing color and positive energy that perfectly matches your holiday decor with red blooms. Here at Peoples Flowers, Albuquerque’s premier florist, we are sharing with you our favorite red flowers we fill our homes with for an extra dose of cheer, warmth, and beauty.

Why We Love Red Flowers

Red is a compelling color because it instantly attracts our attention. Red is one of the most visible colors to the human eye, and the color babies see first. Red is also the international color for stop lights and stop signs, and over 75% of all world flags have red on them.

Symbolism of the Color Red

Red is associated with strong feelings such as passion, love, and anger, and it also symbolizes power, strength, courage, and danger. It is a vibrant and stimulating color with strong links to sexuality and increased appetites (it’s why so many restaurants use red in their advertisements.) Red is also energizing and exciting and can boost our confidence and motivate us to act.

Our Favorite Red Flowers For Warmth and Radiance


A large and glorious bloom, the amaryllis is even more impressive due to its bright red color. A symbol of radiant beauty, this tall and elegant bloom also represents strength and resolve.


This pretty poppy-like flower comes in various sizes and colors, including a vibrant red with a brilliant white center. Beautifully stunning, the red anemone signifies fragility and love.


The charming aster flower resembles a starburst, and the word “aster” means “star” in Greek. The red variety of this bright bloom denotes undying devotion.


The layers of delicate notched petals give carnations a frilly, soft look. Coming in an array of different colors,  light red carnations symbolize adoration, while dark red carnations represent love and affection.


Chyrsanthemums have a rich history and symbolism dating back to the 15th century B.C. Called the “Queen of Fall Flowers,” red mums represent happiness and beauty.


Not just for lovers on Valentine’s day, red roses are available all year round and are perfect for elevating your holiday decor with their stunning beauty and sweet fragrance.

Our Favorite Red Blooming Plants


Of course the poinsettia has to be on a list of winter red flowers. Sometimes called the “Christmas flower,”  poinsettias have vibrant red leaves and symbolizes joy, success, and the Christmas season.

Red-Blooming Holiday Plants Besides Poinsettias


The exotic-looking anthurium has long-lasting, showy, bright-red blooms. Made of modified that are thick, waxy, and a vibrant red color, this eye-catching plant represents happiness and hospitality.

Christmas Cactus

A popular houseplant that blooms for long periods of time, the Christmas Cactus produces colorful, bright flowers in red, pink, and lilac colors. Red varieties symbolize warmth, security, love, and grandness.


A type of succulent, the kalanchoe plant blooms clusters of brightly colored flowers in red, yellow, and orange. Kalanchoe plants symbolize endurance and eternal love.


A low-maintenance, tropical plant perfect for indoors, bromeliads love the sunlight and produces long-lasting, colorfully vibrant blooms. Bromeliads blooms symbolize passion and joy.

Winterberry Holly

These charming, bright red little berries only reveal themselves once all the leaves have dropped away. Symbolizing winter and Christmas, use them in holiday wreaths or put the brances in vases for a pop of bright color and warmth.
