This Is 1-800-Flowers’ Pick for 2021’s Flower of the Year Trend

Like many retailers, 1-800-Flowers is joining in on the best-of-list action and predicting what the trends of 2021 will be. Here’s their call for, naturally, the top flower trends of 2021.

According to the floral delivery service, the sunflower will be the top flower for the upcoming year. In its announcement post, the brand says, “2020 has been a difficult year, and many of us are looking forward to a new beginning in 2021. With this long-awaited fresh start, we anticipate health, happiness, and making the most of life’s special moments. Welcome all that positivity and more with the Flower of the Year, the sunflower.” 1-800-Flowers goes on to praise the flower’s optimistic symbolism and says that the bloom represents “vitality, creativity, and happiness—something we can always use more of!”

But the sunflower is not the only plant that the service predicts will trend in the new year. It also named the Red Maranta Prayer Plant as its top plant of 2021. According to 1-800-Flowers, the plant stands for gratitude and respect and has a “peaceful nature” that’s appropriate for the upcoming year.

In case you’re looking to get more into gardening or are planning to add another houseplant to your home in the upcoming new year, take a tip from 1-800-Flowers and grab a sunflower or a Red Maranta Prayer Plant for a much-needed positivity boost.
