Most Popular Flowers In Britain

Flowers are a thing of natural beauty. Many of us have personal preferences for which are our favourite. Some flowers are popular because of their unique fragrance, beauty, or sometimes both. With millions of different types, colours, and families of flowers, each with their own unique nature and personality, it makes them special.

With such a variation, what are the most popular flowers in Britain?



The rose is considered to be not only the most popular flower in Britain, but throughout the world. Roses are mostly associated with red and white, but they, in fact, come in a number of varieties. The red rose is the national emblem of England, which has been featured strongly throughout history.


Liles originated in China in the Middle Ages, and have been cultivated for more than 3,000 years. This plant flowers until late autumn, with three types; red, yellow, and purple. Available all year round, the lily has found a place in the hearts of people throughout the UK. In the past, lilies were used to prepare remedies in popular medicine.


Freesias are amongst the most popular and widely grown cut flowers in the world. Although these flowers are available all year round, spring is their peak time. They come in a wide range of colours, which include yellow, red, pink, and black. Unlike other flowers where the white forms smell the strongest, the strongest scent is found in the pink and red varieties.
