Science tells us that those who spend some time around flowers while sick do much better than their counterparts who don’t. In fact, a researcher at Rutgers found that flowers, in general, keep people happy for days, while a 2008 study by the American Society of Horticultural Science found that patients in the hospital use less pain medication and have lower blood pressure overall if they have flowers or potted plants in their rooms.
Given the evidence, is there any reason not to send flowers to a loved one who is ill? We at Ah Sam Florist say no.
We prefer something bright and cheerful, naturally, to really lift those spirits. And with something like our Lemon Burst, how could you not feel better already? Sunflowers and hydrangea make for a gorgeous and morale-lifting arrangement that would look just right sitting in a sunny corner or next to a bed.
There are some considerations when it comes to sending get well flowers, which include selecting something that isn’t too large, as well as any allergies the recipient might have. But with a little careful planning, you can pick out the perfect piece from a rainbow of options. It’s almost enough to make you wish you were a little under-the-weather yourself. Let us at Ah Sam Florist help you make someone’s day a bit brighter.
