Did you know that you can easily buy Hawaiian flowers online to send to the mainland? It is a great gift to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, holiday (with Mother's Day being the most popular flower giving time), or to congratulate someone graduating, giving birth, moving into a new home or office. Exotic tropical flower bouquets from Hawaii also make a stunning statement when decorating a room, or add an authentic festive flair to a luau, Hawaiian themed party or Hawaiian wedding.
Hawaiian flowers are considered good value for your money because they are long lasting--with flowers lasting weeks instead of days, have a wonderful variety in color and size, and most Hawaii flowers that are shipped do not cause allergic symptoms for people allergic to highly fragranced flowers. Flowers such as anthurium, dendrobium orchids, red ginger, heliconia, and protea do not have a scent. Hospitals also appreciate these tropical flowers because they do not bother other patients. (I have not seen scented tropical flowers online except shipped as leis and 99 percent of them are actually grown and made into leis in Singapore or Thailand, shipped to Hawaii, and re-shipped to customers on the mainland.)
The majority of Hawaiian flowers are grown on the East side of the Big Island where we live. The photograph above was taken in our rainforest art studio home. This fresh tropical Hawaiian flower assortment is our most popular bouquet. The heart shaped flowers are called anthuriums and come in different shades of red, pink, white, orange, and green. Anthuriums also come in mini sizes about 2 inches across, to gigantic flowers over a foot long! Anthuriums are solid colored, or the rarer two and three blended colored flowers with droopy heart shapes are called "obake anthuriums."
The Hawaiinan ginger flowers are the red ones made up of multi bracted petals in a torch like shape. There are other varieties of interesting gingers as well such as the seasonal yellow orange "beehive" ginger in the center or the flower arrangement.
The spray of small white and purple or lavender flowers are called dendrobium orchids. These are also popular as leis and loose orchid flowers to decorate cakes, drinks, tables, or for guests to wear a flower behind their ear showing off their single or married status.
The smaller orange red spear like flowers are a type of heliconia. Heliconia flowers are fascinating as they come in small to large sizes and are upright or hanging. We also offer other bouquets with different heliconia flowers.
Last but not least is the exotic array of tropical foliage that is included with our Hawaiian flower bouquets to set and frame the flowers in your arrangement. These include good luck "Ti" leaves, areca palm fan leaves, and green and beige striped lauhala leaves as shown.
