Best Flowers for Winter Bouquets  

Whether you have a winter wedding, a winter anniversary, or even a winter birthday, if you’re looking for a flower bouquet, then your options are probably scarce.

While it may be true that there are few florals during the colder season, this does not mean that you should compromise and settle for ordinary flowers. There are plenty of other flowers that do not just bloom in winter, but they also add beauty to the overall bouquet arrangement.

Here are some of the best flowers to add to your winter bouquet:


If these flowers look familiar to you, it is probably because they are a cross between peonies and gardenias. While you may usually find these flowers to be white in colour, there are around 3,000 other species of camellias, all available in a variety of colours ranging from purple, light pink and even multi-colored ones.

Camellias are a symbol of love, affection and adoration, so they make the perfect addition to a meaningful bouquet. Camellias are available from fall to late spring.


Amaryllis is a funnel-shaped flower that is available in shades of pink, red and orange. The various colours of this flower make it the perfect option for every occasion, and the best replacement for cake.

For example: if a friend you know is starting a new job, you could give them a bouquet of orange amaryllis, which represents good fortune and good luck.

On the other hand, if you’re celebrating a winter anniversary, then a bouquet of red amaryllis is the perfect option as they symbolise love and attraction.

Due to their bright red colour, you may have even noticed these flowers being used as toppers for personalised gifts on Christmas.

Narcissus Paperwhite

As the name suggests, this flower is completely white and is commonly known to symbolise hope and joy. This is the main reason why you might find this flower at most winter weddings as table decor.

However most brides add narcissus to their wedding bouquet as it is considered to be a symbol of good luck. If you want to avoid using an all-white bouquet, narcissus flowers go well with other more colourful flowers such as tulips and daylilies to name a few.


Anemones are considered to be multi-seasonal, as they can be planted twice a year, so you’ll always find them during spring as well as winter. These flowers may seem quite similar to the poppy flower at first glance, but are distinguishable by their dramatic jet black centre.

While these flowers are generally used at funerals, newer traditions believe that anemones actually offer protection from evil, which is why they are often added to bouquets and gifted to newlyweds.

Phalaenopsis Orchid

If you’re looking for the perfect bouquet to give to your significant other after proposing to them, then a bouquet of freshly bloomed phalaenopsis orchids is perfect as it is known to symbolise prosperity and beauty.

These flowers are usually available late in December, so be sure to save the date of your proposal accordingly!
