When we lose a loved one we are often showered with gorgeous flower arrangements by our friends and family. This might seem like a small gesture, or even merely a social obligation, but gifting flowers to those who are grieving actually puts a whole new spin on Flower Power. Studies have shown that flowers have healing powers. No, this isn’t some form of ancient magic. It’s science!
Let’s address the elephant in the room: Flowers don’t last forever and will eventually wilt. There, you heard it, straight from your local Salt Lake City florist. However, just because a flower won’t live forever, doesn’t mean their only fate is to be thrown in the trash when they start to die. At Brown Floral, we love the idea of preserving the beauty of flowers for as long as possible.
Flowers and bees go hand in hand. No, this doesn’t mean that your delivery from Brown Floral will contain a handful of bees – we promise! But bees and flowers share a symbiotic relationship that help each other thrive. Here’s how it all goes down: Bees fly from flower to flower to gather nectar to make honey. When they land on a flower, pollen gets stuck to the tiny hairs on their bodies. This pollen then gets deposited onto the next flower they visit, pollinating the flower and allowing it to reproduce, which means for flowers for bees, and so forth.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a bouquet or a special flower delivery is worth a million. Whether you are trying to express love, gratitude, sympathy, or just trying to make someone smile, flowers are the perfect way to do so. But not all flowers are created equal. We’ve compiled a list of 10 flowers that can be used to say something special to your loved ones. (more…)

Admit it, we are all guilty of doing it at one point or another… involuntary plant-slaughter. You buy some low maintenance plants that not even the brownest thumb could kill, pot them with only the purist of intentions, and then GASP! How could this be?! You managed to kill a plant that almost is not even capable of being killed. Take heart friends, we are here to show you the error of your ways, and paint that thumb green after all.
