Germany, France and the United Kingdom are all to thank for the increase in Dutch flower exports last month, which climbed 8.5 percent in November.

According to Bloomberg News, sales of potted plants and cut flowers rose to 397.3 million euros from 366.2 million euros the year before, based on data from the Dutch Agricultural Wholesale Board for Flowers and Plants.

Demand was generally high from Germany, France and the UK, though the colder temperatures at the end of the month accounted for some decrease in demand, or, as the Board put it, "wintry weather handicaps flower and plant sales, because the street trade largely falls away," the news source reports.

Looking to add a distinctively Dutch appeal to your winter flower arrangement or bouquet? Tulips, daffodils, crocuses, hyacinths and calla lilies are all trademark blooms of Holland and make ideal cut flowers, according to Tulips are especially emblematic of the region, and come in many colors including red, yellow, white and pink, the website reports.
