Easter Bouquets

The Martha Stewart Show, March 2010

Decorate your home with colorful arrangements assembled with these popular Easter flowers.

Lilies
Available in white, pink, burgundy, pale-yellow, and bi-color combinations, lilies are heavily scented flowers that bring a touch of spring to any room.

Tulips
Tulips are perennial bulbs that traditionally grow one flower per stem. Holland is the main producer of this lovely bulb, growing as many as 3 billion annually.

Roses
The number of petals makes a big difference in the longevity of this popular flower: Roses with fewer petals generally open faster, which shortens the life of the rose.

Stock
A lovely annual flower, commercially grown stock comes in a range of colors, including white, cream, peach, mauve, pale pink, hot pink, lavender, purple, and burgundy.

Hydrangeas
Native to southern and eastern Asia, hydrangeas come in two flower varieties: mop-heads, which have large, round flower heads resembling pom-poms, and lace-caps, which bear round, flat flower heads with a center core of subdued, fertile flowers surrounded by outer rings of showy blooms.

Resources
Martha arranged hydrangeas and azaleas into a Delightful Blooms Basket; 1-800-Flowers.com founder Jim McCann used "Tycoon" lilies and Oncidium orchids to create a Buttercup Lily Bouquet.
