Flowers have been cultivated and adored by humans for thousands of years.
Their beauty has been so appreciated that they are used to decorate all of the most important celebrations in life. There are some flowers that have gained more significance through their symbolism or through reference within literature and other cultural narrations.
Here is a list of some of the blooms from around the world considered most beautiful by humans:
Cherry Blossom – These delicate blooms are synonymous with the Far East and the beauty of the cultures that can be found there. Cherry blossoms have been cultivated within western society and can be ordered from all specialist flower stores such as Interflora. The fact that cherry blossoms bloom in early spring only further reflects their gentle and elusive nature.
Calla Lily – These flowers are far more audacious in aesthetic than the cherry blossom. The Calla Lily’s unmistakably velvety soft whit petals are exquisitely wrapped around its infamously golden yellow stamen.
Bluebells – Perhaps an understated flower as one bluebell alone is not especially stunning. But when a sprint time woodland floors is dusted with the unquestionably violet haze made only from the infamous bloom, you can see why writers of fairy tales have taken muse from the stunning sight. They are also favourable flowers in the UK.
Colorado Columbine – Found deep in the foot hills of the Rocky Mountains the Colorado Columbine is a genuine find for any climber on the lookout for natural beauty. Their lavender double bloom and star shaped petals make them a startling sight and due to their endangered status, you can pick up a hefty fine for picking one!
