Introduction:Flowers are a great gift to give people, especially friends. Here are the top five flowers to give to a friend.

  • 01

    TIE: Gladiolus and Carnation

    Often the flowers Gladiolus and Carnation represent a strength of character in the person receiving the flowers. If someone is your friend, it probably has a lot to do with their character so why not show them that you respect them for it? Giving these flowers is also a sign of admiration and pride, so give your friend Gladiolus or Carnations when they succeed in something, need a pick me up, or whenever you want to show how much you care.

    Chrysanthemum

    Many people believe that giving a Chrysanthemum to someone is a clear way to show them that they are a wonderful friend. This is because the Chrysanthemum represents friendship, cheerfulness, and the ability to rest easy.

  • 03

    Daisy

    Daisies are great flowers to give friends as daisies represent loyal love, purity, and the ability to keep secrets; all important traits in a great friend. Great friends love you no matter what; they don't trash you or act fake with you, nor do they take advantage of you in impure ways; and they definitely know how to keep a secret if they must. So show your friends you care with the daisy.

  • 04

    Yellow Roses

    Many people associate roses only with romance, but did you know that yellow roses represent friendship? They do! Roses are so beautiful and can be given one at a time, in a bouquet or arrangement, or as a corsage or something and they will always have a great effect on the recipient. Just make sure that you get YELLOW roses if your friend is truly JUST A FRIEND... or else you might send the wrong message.

  • 05

    TIE: Peony and Gardenia

    Now, if you DON'T want your friend to remain "just a friend," but instead want a romantic relationship to evolve, Peony and Gardenia should be your flowers of choice. Peonies say "I love you," for those too shy to say the words themselves and Gardenias say "you're lovely" and express a secret or hidden love.




Final Thoughts

In the end, get whatever flowers feel right for you and your friends. Maybe you just want to get your friends their favorite flowers. That's cool too! These are just some suggestions for you.

    I did know that Yellow Roses denotes friendship and they are, in my opinion, just as beautiful as red roses.
