Why are flowers so expensive?

Giving flowers to others is a centuries-old tradition throughout the world. We send flowers to express love, happiness, sympathy, regret, and so much more. Flowers speak a powerful language between friends, family, and loved ones.

Flower prices vary greatly depending on bloom type, style, design, size, harvest location, and many other factors. What most people do not fully realize, however, is why and how floral arrangements can be so expensive.

Flower spotlight: daisies

Daisies are special because they have the ability to make one think of warm summer sunshine even on the coldest days. Even though daisies come in a variety of colors and shapes, the “white chrysanthemum daisy” is generally the most visible.

But there are many types of daisies! From the chrysanthemum daisy to the Gerbera daisy to the the daisy pom and so on, they can be found in colors ranging from whites, yellows, reds, pinks, purples, oranges and even browns.  Almost every color of the rainbow is represented.
