When thinking of a beautiful bouquet of flowers, blue florals may not typically come to mind. But the wonderful blue hues they present are an absolute delight when added to bouquets featuring other colors or when grouped together with other blue flowers. Here at Prescott’s best florist, Allan’s Flowers, we love using blue flowers whenever possible.
Blue flowers can promote a great variety of feelings from calmness and tranquility to strength and loyalty. From light blues that resemble the sky to deeper blues reminiscent of the ocean, blue flowers offer a wide range of sensory and emotional hues.
So many shades of blue and so many different meanings… this is why we love blue flowers. Here are some of our favorites:
