While Connecticut will never be mistaken for the tropics, the beautiful tropical flowers and plants from City Line Florist can go a long way to making your home look like an exotic locale.
Summer is the best season to transition your home from a New England classic to an island paradise. Take your inspiration from the balmy breezes of Hawaii and the azure waters of the Caribbean – and let us help you create some beautiful seasonal creations that will make you feel like you are on vacation. There are some flowers that are traditionally representative of the tropics – here are just a few to get you started.
The vibrant orange bird of paradise is not only stunning; it resembles a tropical bird; making it a favorite choice for most exotic floral arrangements.
The orchid is one of the most desired of the exotic flowers; delicate purple blooms paired with the angular bird of paradise are a classic summer look.
Red stalks of unique blooms, including red ginger and heliconia, add a dash of fire to an already exciting arrangement.
The name of the anthurium may not be familiar to you, but these large red waxy blooms are one of the most iconic and recognizable tropical flowers.
If looking for standalone tropical plants to create a dish garden or a potted plant display, you simply cannot go wrong with the classic bromeliad. These red, orange or yellow flowers make beautiful potted décor in any home; but are especially appropriate when adorning outdoor spaces. Succulents, such as cacti with desert blooming flowers also add to the mystique of your tropically-inspired home florals.
So put on the island music, make yourself an umbrella drink and surround yourself with beautiful flowers from paradise. If you can’t get to the tropics, bring the tropics to you – with some help from City Line Florists.
