There is no color more representative of the current season than green, even in South Florida. Therefore, the choice of the vibrant green emerald as the birthstone of May is a logical one. Signifying rebirth, rejuvenation, and good fortune, the shimmering emerald is the ideal gemstone to observe May birthdays. But if a precious gemstone isn’t in your gift-giving budget, Port Charlotte Florist has a fitting replacement gift, and a unique way to recognize your loved ones born in May – send them an emerald floral bouquet!
Green is hardly the most popular color for fresh cut flowers. However, a collection of these verdant blooms exhibits a uniquely striking arrangement. Perhaps because we think of green as being limited to leaves on flowers or potted plants, many people are not aware of the number of flower species that are available in the hue. However, fresh green hydrangea, exotic green spider mums, elegant green cymbidium orchids are all eye-catching flowers sure to make an impression. Roses, lilies and carnations also occur in shades of green, although very few exhibits the deep green we refer to as “emerald green”. Emeralds, however, actually occur naturally from tones of yellow-green to blue-green, and we have the flowers, succulents and green plants that will celebrate them all.
Emeralds have been discovered all over the globe and have been mined in nearly 30 countries, including the United States. However, as there have been no emeralds found in Port Charlotte to date – or anywhere in the state of Florida – we suggest designing a vibrant green floral bouquet instead. If an all-green arrangement doesn’t appeal to you, create a bouquet that exhibits bright green florals as a focal point of the overall arrangement?
Plan on celebrating the Emerald May birthdays in your life with an emerald-inspired bouquet from Port Charlotte Florist. Stop into our flower shop to speak with one of our Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda area florists about sending an arrangement sure to make a colorful impression.
