Gifting loved ones or friends with flowers has been a popular way to show some love for years. However, certain days rank higher than others when it comes to delivering bouquets, About Flowers reports.
It may come as no surprise that Valentine's Day ranks number one in terms of the most fresh flowers sold and delivered, but just how many blooms are produced for the special day might come as a shock. The news source reports that approximately 224 million roses were produced in the U.S. for Valentine's Day in 2012. Mother's Day is another popular flower-giving holiday, as it accounts for one-fourth of the floral purchases made on any holiday. However, gifting moms with garden plants or house plants is a more popular trend than giving fresh flowers.
In total, Christmas and Hanukkah account for the most flower gifts all year. Nearly 30 percent of adults in the U.S. purchase flowers or plants to give to others on these holidays, while many also pick up blooms for themselves, the news outlet reports.
Since Valentine's Day is right around the corner, it may be a good idea to start adding to the number of roses sold on the day. Purchasing Valentine's Day flowers like Teleflora's Sparkling Beauty Bouquet is sure to impress your lady. The dozen red roses are gorgeous on their own, but truly shine thanks to the sparkling beauty vase they come in.
