Roses Are Red & Expensive – Flower & Gift Coupons

Roses are red,

Violets are blue.

I saved a ton on flowers with RewardIt–

Wouldn’t you like to save, too?

Forgive the paltry attempts at poetry; we’re just super psyched to offer savings on those oh-so-expensive flowers! A dozen roses shouldn’t have to cost more than your grocery bill. No matter if it’s Valentine’s Day or just Wednesday, flower coupons can transform fresh flowers from a splurge to a weekly occurrence.

But to truly maximize your savings, you’ve got another factor to consider: seasonality. Flowers are fresh-grown just like produce – and just like those sweet corn and strawberries, flowers have a prime growing season, too.

Not sure which flowers are seasonal? Here’s a quick guide to knowing which flowers are in season in winter, summer, spring, and fall.

Spring

Few things conjure up images up springtime like the sight of fresh flowers blooming. Since most plants flower and blossom in the spring, flowers are plentiful from March to May. During these months, keep an eye out for flowers like:

  • Amaryllis
  • Bird of Paradise
  • Dahlia
  • Lily (Stargazer, Calla, Casa Blanca, Gloriosa)
  • Zinnia
  • Peony
  • Lilac
  • Orchid
  • Delphinium
  • Forsythia
  • Peach, cherry, or apple blossom
  • Narcissus
  • Gardenia
  • Poppy
  • Heather
  • Rose
  • Tulip
  • Hyacinth

Summer

The humid summer months are sometimes too hot for more delicate flowers, but there are still plenty of varieties to be found from June through August. If you plan on sending flowers during the summertime, look for these seasonal flowers:

  • Baby’s breath
  • Bird of paradise
  • Lily (Calla, Casa Blanca, Gloriosa, Stargazer)
  • Iris
  • Heather
  • Carnation
  • Dahlia
  • Freesia
  • Gardenia
  • Gladiolus
  • Freesia
  • Foxglove
  • Delphinium
  • Amaranthus
  • Chrysanthemum

Fall

Though fall is generally considered to be the most fruitful time for plants (when the harvest, not the bloom, occurs), the cool, sunny weather still pleases flowering plants, especially those that regularly bloom in springtime. Look for the following flowers during September, October, and November:

  • Gladiolus
  • Chrysanthemum
  • Amaranthus
  • Baby’s Breath
  • Quince
  • Freesia
  • China Berry
  • Carnation
  • Rose
  • Zinnia
  • Gerbera Daisy
  • Sunflower
  • Yarrow
  • Star of Bethlehem
  • Salvia
  • Orchid
  • Queen Ann’s Lace
  • Juniper
  • Iris

Winter

Believe it or not, there are some hardy flowers that can withstand the harsh winter months, though they’re not nearly as plentiful as those found in warmer months. Look for these rare flowers during December, January, and February:

  • Carnation
  • Star of Bethlehem
  • Roses
  • Amaryllis
  • Protea
  • Chrysanthemums
  • Pepperberry
  • Gerbera Daisy
  • Poinsettia
  • Narcissus
  • Pansy
  • Orchid
