Flowers really are that perfect Christmas gift, when you can't be there to share in the Celebrations, and need a gift to arrive in time for Xmas Eve, sending your love and warm wishes from afar.
Festive flowers to say ... "I Love you Mum... I miss you Dad... Thinking of you Nana and Grandpop... To my favourite Aunty... I wish I could be there for Christmas Dinner!"
Sending a Festive Bouquet or a Christmas Table Arrangement is a wonderful way to Share in Christmas Day!
Of course in New Zealand we are "Opposite" to the World when it comes to what traditional Christmas flowers are in season in December for our Summer Xmas.
Best Blooms Florist has a very helpful NZ Seasonal Flower Guide, so if there is a particular sentimental flower you would like to send to your loved ones, then check it out or give our Auckland florists a call on +649 838 9058 - we will help you choose the perfect Christmas Arrangement.
Christmas falls in Summertime in NZ, and if you ask any Kiwi about Christmas Flowers - they will show you our famous red flowering Pohutukawa Trees.
The Native New Zealand Christmas tree has stunning crimson-red flowers. You will find Pohutukawa's around the coastal edges of N.Z. and many a Northern Hemisphere tourist has sent a postcard home, with images of these striking red NZ flowers.
You can find more information about New Zealand native flowers here, where our Senior Florist has written an in depth article about our native flora.
The traditional Northern Hemisphere Christmas Rose (Helleborus Niger) is a true winter flower, which blooms in the snow, and very popular in England for traditional Christmas floral displays. However it is sadly unavailable in December in Auckland.
However, our Xmas bouquets do contain a wide variety of gorgeous local grown New Zealand Red Roses. Seasonal Flowers in deep shades of ruby reds to burgundys, which are always popular in our Christmas Arrangements.
Discussing Christmas Lilies can be one way to start a friendly argument, between North Islanders and South Islanders in New Zealand.
Here in Auckland, (North Island) Our Christmas Lilies are the beautiful, elegant fragrant pure white Longiflorum Lilies (which I adore! See right).
... Ask a Southerner though!... In the South Island the traditional Xmas Lily is the highly fragrant Regale Lilies (Lilium Regale). Beautiful white trumpet-shaped flowers with a pink back on the edge of the amazingly scented blooms.
Do be aware if you are sending Christmas Lilies to the home, they are very, very fragrant and can be allergenic for some people who get affected by hayfever.
Yes Holly is available in New Zealand in December (Much to the joy of the florists hands!!), but it is not naturally in berry as Christmas falls in our Summertime.
We do use fresh Holly and Ivy Leaves- particularly in our Christmas Arrangements and table centrepieces, but we do highlight with some artificial red berries tucked in. These make a lovely little keepsake after for them to re-purpose, re-use and decorate the Xmas tree with. It's nice to have something to keep from your floral gift.
Sadly we don't see mistletoe as a cut flower here in New Zealand, so there's no kissing under the mistletoe for us florists!
Poinsettia are truly the Christmas plant! This famous red flower originates from Mexico and is part of the Euphorbia family. Very, very popular - particularly in North America this is an eternally favourite living Xmas gift, and known around the world as "The Red Christmas Flower"
We are very fortunate that even though our seasons are opposite, we have wonderful poinsettia plant growers here in N.Z. that are able to produce these spectacular blooms in time for December 25th!
Yes - you can plant your Poinsettia in your New Zealand garden after Christmas - and it will flower again, but be aware the plants do get very large when grown here in Aotearoa!
Whatever bouquet you select for your beautiful Christmas florals you can trust Best Blooms to deliver in time for Christmas Eve celebrations, local flowers that will last, and fill the house with scent and send your best wishes from afar.
