If you want to go with a classic flower, the red rose symbolizes love, devotion, and eternity. In 1986, Ronald Reagan pronounced the rose the national flower of the US. This flower is grown all across the country and plays an important role in parades, anniversaries, celebrations – and generally the everyday life of Americans – making it perfect to spark all the right emotions this Independence day.

Delphiniums and Gerbera Daisies
These two flowers both have strong patriotic symbolism. Daisies represent purity and innocence, while Delphinium inspires hope and perseverance for a strong future. Delphiniums are considered the official birth flower for July.
The large, colorful blooms of the Gerbera Daisy and the long proud stems of the Delphiniums make them a perfect pairing for an arrangement, like as seen in our “Raspberry Ripple” arrangement linked below.
