Different types of flower

  1. 1. • DIFFERENT TYPES OF FLOWER • Horizontal flower arrangement- A very shallow container is used to make this type of flower arrangement. It has a single big flower as the focal point and drooping flower branches are added to each side. Rose is the main flower used as the focal point in this type of flower arrangement. Horizontal flower arrangements are very low and hence are suitable for center table decorations. • Vertical arrangement- It is a very tall flower arrangement. Very tall stems of flowers and leaves like tulips, roses and carnations are used for this type of flower arrangement. Shorter fillers like forget-me-not are used to make the arrangement look balanced. • Crescent flower arrangement- This type of flower arrangement is in the shape of the moon. Depending on the size of the crescent, curved shaped flower stems have to be selected. Flowers with flexible stems like gladiola and carnations can be used. Crescent flower arrangements are suitable for coffee table decoration. • Triangular arrangement- This type of flower arrangement uses the tallest flower stems in the center while the smaller flowers are placed on the sides to maintain the triangular shape. Triangular flower arrangements are used mostly in wedding ceremonies. • Oval flower arrangement- This type of flower arrangement has the brightest and tallest flowers in the center. The color and the size of the flowers are allowed to gradually reduce by degrees towards the sides. Oval flower arrangements look formal and hence its used mostly in formal settings. • Minimal arrangement- This is a very popular type of flower arrangement used for indoor decoration. It uses very few flowers and concentrates more on the focal flower. • Hogarths curve or lazy "s"- This is the most complex type of flower arrangement. The flowers are arranged to form a S shape. It requires a lot of professional skill to form Hogarths curve flower arrangement.Different types of flower arrangements are used for different occasions and settings like weddings,corporate parties, anniversaries, birthday parties, Valentines Day and Mothers Day.

Such seasonal flower types aresummer flowers, winter flowers, autumn and spring flowers. These flowers bloom in their individualseason and wither away with the onset of a new season. This is because all flowers and plantscannot germinate under all kinds of conditions. However some flowers do bloom in more than oneseason and are not season-specific. Thus flowers can also be divided into annuals, biennials andperennials. Annuals grow regularly once a year, biennials finish their life span in two seasons whereas perennials grow all year long.One can also divide flowers into types according to its corolla. Flowers can be • Sympetalous - when the petals are wholly or partly joined • Polypetalous- when the petals are not joined • Actinomorphic- when they have radial symmetry • Zygomorphic- when they have bilateral symmetry.
