As summer arrives, the earth's landscape lights up with flowers in an array of colors, creating a veritable artist's pallet of hues. Take advantage of these beautiful blooms when seeking a romantic or impressive present. Select some seasonal flowers that appear in May as a way to delight your gift recipient with the best and brightest blooms on the market.
Full and lush hydrangeas are a popular seasonal May flower. These delicate flowers feature clustered petals that give the flower a highly uncommon look, separating them from the rest. These flowers are available in cut form, but many elect to present a longer-lasting hydrangea plant, such as the Potted Blue Hydrangea available from ProFlowers, which features a bold blue hydrangea plant.
If seeking a decidedly May flower, try the peony. This flower features large blooms with full petals that form a bold, bulbous looking cluster. Because of their short lifespan, May is one of the only months in which flower enthusiasts can enjoy these beautiful blooms. Present your gift recipient with a collection of peonies cut from a bush or purchased from a flower shop, filling a vase full of these stunners as a special treat.
Lily-of-the-valley is a decidedly different-looking floral option. The petals of these flowers feature bell-like shapes that hang from a vine, giving the lily-of-the-valley plant a delicate and feminine look. While almost never found in cut flower arrangements, you can delight your flower recipient with a potted version of this plant. For a May-appropriate floral gift, try the Lily of the Valley Bulb Garden from ProFlowers, which features six pips of lily-of-the-valley that arrive in bud stage in a ceramic box.
If seeking a sweet smelling floral gift, look no further than freesia. This floral option is available in an assortment of hues, allowing you to select the color your recipient prefers. Select a mixed bouquet for a colorful gift option or a one-colored collection of blooms for a sleek and simple flower present.
