The History of Sending Flowers on Christmas Day
Christmas flowers have become a quintessential tradition in the UK that was first introduced in 1840. Charles Dickens wrote a description of his idea of what would become the classic image of family togetherness at Christmas - and an integral part of the scene was having green leaves, such as holly, laurel, or mistletoe, stuck among them. With Charles Dickens and others seeing so much beauty and symbolism in flower arrangements for Christmas - there are now few things more recognised about celebrating during December than festive flowers.

What flowers do you use for Christmas decorations?
The Poinsettia is the most famous Christmas plant. It's the most popular houseplant in the UK at Christmas, and with its gorgeous red and green festive foliage, it's easy to see why.
Amaryllis is a well-known Christmas flower. It blooms with festive bright red flowers that complement traditional Christmas colours. Other varieties produce snowy white flowers, perfect for a winter wonderland appearance. The flowers are large and trumpet-shaped, so they are naturally eye-catching.
Red roses aren't just reserved for romantic occasions; they're also common in Christmas bouquets. Their vibrant colour matches the traditional colours of the season, giving bouquets an instantly festive appearance.
Azaleas are members of the Rhododendron family and are popular houseplants at Christmas, ideal for keeping the winter chill at bay. Their lovely, full blooms are perfect for brightening up your home, with red and white being the most popular colours during the holiday season. As gifts, these plants will be greatly appreciated.
Cymbidium Orchids, which are native to Himalayan forests, are an unusual and elegant addition to Christmas bouquets. They are only in season during the winter because they are usually found above cloud level, so Christmas is a good time to enjoy them.
They add gorgeous interest and texture to flower arrangements with their elegant flower spikes of decorative blooms. White varieties are especially lovely at Christmas, lending an enchanting snowy aesthetic to bouquets.
