Flower Types from all over the World
Flowers come in so many varieties and there are plenty of ways to categorize them. At Melody Farms, we classify them by the purpose they serve in a flower arrangement.
In this article you will learn about the different kinds of flowers and the role they play in flower arrangements and bouquets.
Let us begin.
Focal flowers are the most attractive part of an arrangement. The eye is drawn to them immediately. They are usually the largest flower in your bouquet.
The hydrangea is a symbolic flower. It represents graciousness, beauty, and abundance from its profuse petals and round shape.
Roses usually symbolize love, passion and attraction. A single rose or a bouquet of roses with red blooms embodies these qualities.
Flowers like red roses symbolize admiration, beauty and affection for another person.
The sunflower is the symbol of the sun and symbolizes love and admiration. But also happiness, vitality, positivism and energy.
The sunflower is often thought to have spiritual meaning because of its symbolic movement. This symbolism can be attributed to a happy way of life and constant search for light, enlightenment, and love of the sun.

Oriental lilies are perfect for weddings and congratulatory presents. They symbolize purity and a new beginning.
Semi-focal flowers are supporting actors in the flower world, but they are as important as the focal flowers. No bouquet or floral arrangement is complete without them.
