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

The color red has inspired us for ages – ever since the prehistoric days when red clay was ground up and used to color in animal shapes on cave walls. Since then, the color red developed wide ranging meanings symbolizing love, romance, passion, Holy blood, life, war, beauty, power, danger, and adventure, to name a few. Red paired with blue and white represents patriotism in the U.S.; in China and Japan, red symbolizes good luck; and in Nepal and India, red gowns are worn by brides for good luck, wealth, and prosperity.

The color red with its intensity, vivacity, and energy is hard to ignore. See for yourself how adding fresh red blooms can transform your home, mood, and spirits into something festive, joyful, beautiful, and positive.
