British writer John Harrigan once coined, “Happiness held is the seed; Happiness shared is the flower.” It’s a sentiment that few could dispute. In addition to being beautiful to behold, flowers uplift the spirit and spread joy to those who have them in their midst. But for some, flowers present a problem — by triggering a host of allergy symptoms — particularly chrysanthemums, daisies, chamomile, and sunflowers.

There’s hope! Not all flowers are destined to give you sneezes, sniffles and watery eyes. If you or a friend or family member suffer from flower allergies, Lucy’s Flowers is your go-to destination for hypoallergenic floral arrangements that can be enjoyed by all. Lucy’s in-depth knowledge of which blooms are best and will custom create one for you that’s as allergy safe as it is stunning.

So which flowers are allergy safe?

Hydrangeas: Whether they’re blue, pink, white, purple, these big bumptious flowers produce little pollen and just a few of them can create an elegant arrangement.

Orchids: These floral gems have pollen that mostly sticks to the flower, and doesn’t disperse into the air. 

Roses: Garden rose pollen doesn’t carry far, and unscented varieties and newer hybrids are less likely still to trigger allergies.  

Tulips and daffodils: These flowers, a hallmark of spring, have a low pollen count, making them ideal for allergy sufferers. 

Irises and Peonies: These graceful flowers truly make an impact in any floral arrangement. Even better:  they’re quite allergy friendly! 

Calla lilies: Pollen from these beauties tends to stick to the flower, as insects pollinate them.
