Popular Single Variety Flowers for Home

Have you heard? The latest must-have floral home decor is single-variety flowers, also known as mono botanical arrangements. Single varieties of impactful and architectural flowers such as orchids, anthuriums, lilies and hydrangea are go-to-picks for this type of arrangement. These single-variety flowers are suitable for on-trend modern and minimalist homes with clean lines and simplicity in mind.

Single Variety Lilies

The graceful lily can mean many things. It can symbolise royalty, motherhood, fertility and rebirth, purity and passion. Its name traces back through numerous civilizations to one of the first words for flower, showing its importance through the centuries. Lilies are traditionally used as wedding flowers in China, as their name sounds like the start of a phrase wishing the couple a happy union for 100 years. White lilies are an obvious symbol of purity and are also used to express loss as they are believed to relieve heartache. Pink lilies can mean ambition, and yellow lilies most commonly symbolise good health and healing.

Because of the lily’s distinct fragrance, it is a popular choice for homeowners looking to add a whiff of scent to their space.

Single Variety Market Flowers Chrysanthemums

Single Variety Chrysanthemum

The Chrysanthemum can symbolise loyalty and devotion, lasting friendship, long life, joy, and optimism as a flower of great importance. The Greek words for gold (chrysos) and flower (anthemon) were combined to reflect the beauty and value of this bloom. The name carries over in Chinese and Japanese translations, which literally mean gold flower as well. Chrysanthemums come in various shapes and sizes and are one of the most important cut flowers used for bouquets and boutonnieres today. Chrysanthemums are the perfect choice to boost optimism, especially when you are facing an obstacle or recovering from a life-changing event.

Chrysanthemum works well with modern styles as it adds softness to the overall surroundings.


Single Variety Orchids

With over 25,000 species and 100,000 varieties, orchids are the largest family of blooming flowers. Orchids have been an important symbol in human culture, art and literature. The ancient Greeks regarded orchids as a symbol of virility. They believed orchids with large tuberous roots symbolised male children, while orchids with small tubers symbolised females. The Victorians collected and displayed them as a sign of luxury, and a means to show their refined taste. They are becoming ever more popular and are often grown as houseplants and used by florists in floral displays. Orchids have the added benefit of staying fresh for a good while.

Due to the nature of orchids being hardy and long-lasting, they make a good choice for busy homeowners looking to brighten their homes.
