How to choose Lunar New Year Flowers

2 min read

Flowers play an important role in lunar new year celebrations. They are now only used for decorative purposes but also form part of the gifting culture along with baskets of fruits and red pockets. There are a myriad of flowers that can be gifted that hold different symbolic meanings. 

This guide will help you choose the perfect flowers to use this Lunar New Year. 


Anthurium plants often come in the colour red, a symbol for good fortune and prosperity throughout the year in Asian cultures. Having these beautiful plants around a home makes it a favourite for the home. Anthuriums don’t just symbolise fortune, they help keep the air in your home clean as it filters out toxins such as ammonia, formaldehyde, and xylene from the air which is a fortunate benefit. If you’re looking to send an anthurium to a friend or family member, our Wealth plant is available for delivery.

They can also symbolise love, unity, and fertility and so make the perfect gift to newlyweds or young married couples.
