When someone you love is in the hospital, you want to tell them you’re thinking of them and let them know how much you care. Sending a gift or card is a good idea; sending flowers is even better! Flowers are proven to lift spirits and help people feel happier longer. Plus their cheerful look will dress up any hospital room quickly. But, there are a few things you should think about before sending flowers to a medical center.
Casas Adobes Flower Shop wants to help you choose the perfect bouquet for your loved one, and avoid flowers that may not be ideal for a hospital setting. We’re here to help you send the perfect message with your blooms. Plus we’ll give you solid advice about hospital procedures concerning deliveries. Take a look at how to send the perfect get-well flowers to any medical facility in the Tucson area and brighten a patient’s day.
Which Get-Well Flowers to Send (and which to avoid sending!)
Before picking the first bouquet that catches your eye, it’s wise to think about what works and doesn’t work in a hospital environment. Here are a few tips to help you make your decision:
- Keep it compact. While big, showy flowers definitely make a statement, hospital rooms can be tight and cramped. Choose a low or compact design that won’t overwhelm the room or be in the way.
- Keep it allergy-free. Even if the patient doesn’t have allergies to flowers, their doctors or nurses might! Be respectful of the fact that a lot of people come and go in hospital rooms. Choose hypo-allergenic blooms like the delphinium or bells of Ireland found in our Nature Walk Bouquet for a fresh design that won’t offend the senses.

- Keep it durable. Choosing a design in an unbreakable container will be helpful in a busy hospital room. You want to be sure your arrangement can handle being bumped, moved or accidentally dropped.
- Keep it for a long time. Choose plants or blooms that are long-lasting so your recipient can bring them home after their stay. They’ll also appreciate low-maintenance varieties like the bromeliads in our Tropical Blooming Bromeliad Plant.

- Keep it bright. Beautiful, cheerful colors and fun styles will make their day. Let them know you’re thinking of them for a speedy recovery when you send sunny, happy blooms. The cheery addition of daisies and sunflowers in our Sunny Meadow Bouquet will brighten up any room.

- Pansies: Send loving thoughts symbolized by the delicate, bright petals of pansies.
