Flowers for the Boys

I really enjoy giving a man flowers.  I give them for birthday’s, fathers day, or some other promotion they’ve received.  The look on their face is priceless!  I don’t suggest giving them roses and lilies but something fun, attention-getting,  and  exotic with a touch of masculinity.  Choose orchids, birds of paradise, or an indoor bonsai tree and the appreciation and reaction will be one you’ll talk about for years.

At the time of purchase of any of the flowers below, be sure to get detailed care instructions from the florist.

Teleflora's Bamboo Elegance

Orchids should only be watered of 5 to 12 days.  During the summer every 4 days.  They should be placed in an area where there is good indirect light.

Japanese Maple Bonsai

The Japanese maple bonsai is to be kept in a shaded area during the summer and high sun exposure the remainder of the year.  Also, only use bonsai soil for repotting.

Telefora Memories of Paradise

This lovely exotic flower needs high sunlight and should be watered every 4 days or so.  Also, floral preservative is recommended.

Teleflora Dulce Duet

See care instructions above.

Trident Maple Bonsai

The trident maple bonsai require a good sun exposure. Also, it is best to keep the maple bonsai in a greenhouse during the winter as the roots retain water and this could cause a problem if the is kept outside.

Happy Celebrating!
