Easter Bouquets

The Martha Stewart Show, March 2010

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

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
