Top 5 Flowers We’re Thankful to Have

Flowers are always blooming at Peoples Flower Shops, serving Albuquerque and the surrounding areas. Our florists genuinely believe in the everyday appeal of flowers because they’re fragrant and beautiful. Flowers also have some amazing health benefits that people can enjoy just from spending time around them. Flowers have the power to improve mood, lower stress, and strengthen your memory. They can even help people recovering from surgery, illness, or injury to get well faster.

With so many wonderful benefits, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy flowers every day! Why wait for the next special occasion or holiday, when you could order flowers today?

What Are the Most Popular Flowers?

Flowers gain popularity thanks to exceptional beauty, fragrance, and important symbolic meaning. The most popular flowers also depend on where and when you live. Camellias and lotus flowers, for example, are really popular in East Asia, but rarely used in other parts of the world. There was also a time when tulips were so prized they were valuable enough to be used as currency, and some people were willing to pay tens of thousands of dollars for the most prized bulbs. Today, tulips are still well-loved, but we don’t think anyone’s paying that kind of money for their Mother’s Day arrangements.

Everyone loves roses for the seemingly endless unfolding of petals and their timeless beauty. They bloom in so many different colors and are so well-loved that each variety carries its own meaning. You probably know that red roses symbolize romance, but did you know that pink roses are for admiration? Lavender represents love at first sight, orange is for passion, blue is for the unattainable, white represents purity, and yellow roses symbolize friendship.

Orange Lilies

Lilies come in several colors and varieties, but we especially love orange lilies because they look beautiful and represent passion, respect, and honor.

sunflowers and assorted flowers in vase


Sunflowers represent pure thoughts, admiration, and dedication. We love them for their bright-yellow petals and large blooms. They’re perfect for autumn floral arrangements and also complement brightly colored designs.

Alstroemeria is sometimes overlooked, but if you pay attention, you’ll find it most floral arrangements. These lovely flowers bloom in a variety of colors including orange, yellow, cream, white, peach, pink, red, and purples. Their petals feature pretty contrasting speckles. This flower represents friendship and prosperity.

Gerbera Daisies

Just looking at a gerbera daisy will make you feel the sunshine on your skin. They bloom in summery shades of pink, orange, yellow, white, and red. This flower embodies cheerfulness though-and-through.

What Your Favorite Flower Says About You

Flowers have their own symbolic meanings, and some people think favorite flowers can reveal something about a person’s personality. For example, those who love roses are said to be great caregivers. Daisy lovers have a spirit for adventure. If you like lilies, you have compassion and dignity, and those who like sunflowers are thought to be cheerful, warm, and approachable.

How Do I Order Flowers for Someone?

When ordering flowers for someone other than yourself, it’s important to think about your relationship with the recipient, the occasion, and the sentiment you want your floral gift to convey. We recommend saving red roses for romantic relationships and occasions only. It’s also smart to reserve all-white floral arrangements for somber occasions because they usually represent sympathy and remembrance. If you’re not sure what to choose, we recommend selecting a season arrangement or a bouquet featuring a variety of colors and flowers.

Peoples Flower Shops makes ordering flowers easy! With our online ordering feature, you can have flowers delivered to just about any location. Plus, we always welcome customers to stop by any of our four locations for personalized assistance and professional recommendations.
