Throughout the year, we use flowers for many different occasions. We send roses on Valentine’s Day, carnations on Mother’s Day – and daisies to celebrate a best friend’s birthday. There are many ways to use flowers to send a message or to convey a sentiment – but sometimes, flowers can be used to bring personality to your home’s décor. This summer, embrace the sub-tropical spirit of the Southwest and decorate your home with gorgeous tropical blooms that exude sunshine.
Some flowers, like purple orchids and orange birds of paradise, evoke visions of lazy days on tropical beaches, with balmy breezes and crystalline water. That may bring thoughts of lush rain forests or a damp, green botanical garden. Whatever your dream setting, there is no doubt that these vivid and exotic blooms bring excitement and beauty to any space.
Sub-tropical climates such as the one we have in Tucson are home to many flowers and plants that are equally vibrant. The hibiscus flower, the brilliant anthurium, red ginger and heliconia flowers all add tropical flair. If you are looking to transform a sun room or patio space, consider making a bromeliad garden in various size pots; add succulent cacti with surprising bright blossoms make for interesting character.
Floral arrangements utilizing tropical flowers are perfect to add color and drama to any space; they are vibrantly striking and draw the eye towards them. They are also, as a class, easily cared for, as they are used to severe weather conditions. Therefore, tropical flowers and floral arrangements make for excellent summer décor both indoors and out.
