Why is red such an exciting flower color?
The color red has intrigued and stimulated humankind since prehistoric times when red clay was ground up and used to color animals on cave walls. Throughout history, the color red has been symbolically linked to a wide array of sentiments – from love, passion, and romance to Holy blood, life, war, and wealth, to beauty, power, danger, lust, and adventure, to name a few. Red paired with green represents Christmas in Western countries, and combined with blue and white symbolizes patriotism in the U.S. Red signifies good luck in China and Japan, and brides in Nepal and India wear red gowns for prosperity and luck.
Red is a color that is hard to ignore. Add some red florals to your home and watch how the room, your mood, and overall ambiance transform into something warm, positive, and uplifting.
