As the Chinese New Year approaches, many people of Chinese decent will celebrate and welcome the New Year by displaying and sending flowers.

The New Year falls on February 3 this year. Flower markets in Hong Kong and other parts of China as well as Chinese communities in the U.S. and other countries will be bustling on the days leading up to the actual holiday.

According to, "Every traditional Chinese household should have live blooming plants to symbolize rebirth and new growth. Flowers are believed to be symbolic of wealth and high positions in one's career. A home with a plant that blooms on New Year's Day signifies a year of prosperity."

The most popular New Year's flowers include peach blossoms, peonies, narcissus, orchids, snap dragons and chrysanthemums. Symbolic fruits for the celebration include oranges and tangerines.

Individuals who wish to welcome the New Year with fresh flowers may consider buying or ordering flowers online for themselves or friends or family members.

While traditional floral arrangements always make an ideal gift, adding a fruit basket containing oranges or tangerines can really help make your wish of happiness in the New Year evident.
