The Benefits of Flowers


Healthcare reports credit flowers with the ability to not only improve one’s mood, but to better one’s health. Floral Philanthropy is a unique, first-in-Canada program which re-purposes the flowers from your event to bring joy, healing and therapeutic benefit to others.

Research studies have shown that flowers seem to boost brain functioning, enhancing episodic memory in older people. Plus, cardiac patients’ heart rates lowered and moods improved substantially when they were exposed to flowers. Findings of this research suggest that plants and flowers in a hospital environment could be non-invasive, inexpensive, and an effective complementary medicine for patients recovering from surgical procedures.

80% of Americans say receiving flowers makes them feel happy and 88% say giving flowers makes them feel better about their day. 

Flowers offer those who hold them a chance to reconnect with the natural world. This is increasingly difficult to do every day.
