The flowers they use are under the care of the farmers until they’re cut and then are immediately arranged and sent out with your note.

Aside from their Valentine’s Day arrangements, they have a variety of flowers to choose from and arrangements that reflect an array of styles and occasions. They even have houseplants you can send to a loved one who is allergic to flowers but loves having greenery in their home.

You can choose between 12 stems, 24 stems, or 36 stems for their classic rose arrangements, which come in red, pink, white, lavender, and multicolor. Each order comes with an included vase.

Overnight Flowers aims to keep their flowers as affordable as possible. They want everyone to experience what it’s like to send and receive flowers and try to keep that process as simple as possible. Their team is prepared to fulfill even the biggest expectation because they’re already focused on the fresh quality of their blooms.

Benchmark Bouquets

Benchmark Bouquets

is a unique flower delivery service with their main online platform on Amazon. Many of their arrangements will ship in their bud stage straight from their farm. Benchmark serves as the farmers, designers, and distributors of their arrangements, helping to ensure the longest life possible for your loved one’s arrangement. Most arrangements come with a vase, so you won’t need to worry about finding a separate one.

When you select your bouquet and check out, you have the option to say “this is a gift.” If you check this box, you can fill out a personalized message for your recipient. When the flowers arrive, they’ll know exactly who the gift is from (or not, if you want it to be anonymous!) and instantly feel your love. Because their shop is on Amazon’s platform, Benchmark Bouquets has the ability to offer overnight shipping for Prime members Monday through Thursday if they’re placed before 1 p.m. EST; however, they don’t offer deliveries on Saturday, Sunday, or Monday.

The best option of all: Somewhere local to your recipient

Nothing says you care like sending flowers to a loved one, and it’s made even more special when you support a small business local to their area. Most places nowadays have an online ordering platform for their arrangements, and it’s as easy as searching “local flower delivery in Town, State.” Often the first few options will be larger companies, but once you find a reliable local service, you’ll be supporting small business owners while simultaneously showing someone how much you care. Best of all, the local nature of the company means you won’t have to worry about the flowers staying beautiful in shipping or overnight delivery because they’ll likely have a same-day or scheduled option.

There’s no wrong occasion for sending flowers or houseplants. If your loved one adores beautiful blooms and indoor greenery, you can always surprise them with something special delivered right to their door!

Pink peonies

If you’re looking for a flower to add to your spring flower garden, then the peony might be just what you need. These elegant herbaceous perennials look sweet and delicate, but they’re actually quite hardy. Whether they’re in your garden or in containers, indoors or out, peonies are sure to be a crowd-pleaser. You can get started growing your own today using this simple peonies care guide. From planting to pests, we’ll answer all your peony care questions to help you keep your peonies happy and healthy.
Planting peonies

Peonies are most commonly found as bare root tubers (meaning just the tuber, without any soil) or are mature plants. Mature plants are easier to find later in the year and are usually sold as container plants. If you choose one of these, look for one that hasn’t fully bloomed yet. Flowers that are already fully open will fade more quickly, so choosing a plant with buds will help you get the most out of your plant.
