What’s In or Out? Flower trends RESULTS

Thank you for your amazing response to last week’s post about flower trends.Yes, I do agree with most of you: there is no such thing as a “bad” flower. That’s what makes our job so interesting. We are working with something naturally beautiful, so there is very little we can do to create an ugly arrangement.

However, based on my study of my client requests over the years, here is my verdict on which flowers are in or out based on geographical region:

America (of course, I am based in New York)

  • Roses: In (especially the giant sizes and new varieties)
  • Amaryllis: In
  • Tulips : In (especially Parrot tulips)
  • Dahlias: OUT

Middle East

  • Roses: OUT (My clients claim they have been overused)
  • Amaryllis: In
  • Tulips: In
  • Dahlias: OUT

Asia

  • Roses: In
  • Amaryllis: In
  • Tulips: In
  • Dahlias: In

Europe

  • Roses: Almost on their way out (I get conflicting request from clients.)
  • Amaryllis: In
  • Tulips: In (especially French tulips)
  • Dahlias: In

So there you have it. Please don’t kill the messenger.

Now for this week, growing up in Panama, birds of paradise and other tropical flowers were considered weeds growing in my back yard. So, I was very surprised when tropical flowers became the thing to do back in the ’80s. Even today there is a large demand for these flowers all over the world.

Tell me… which of these tropical flowers do you consider IN or OUT?
