At Seattle’s top florist, Stadium Flowers, we’re celebrating some spectacular women this month in honor Women’s History Month the only way we know how – by revealing the favorite flower of some of our ideal women. It’s remarkable discovering how each lady’s chosen favorite flower perfectly represents their unique character.
Audrey Hepburn – Lily of the Valley
Audrey Hepburn’s inimitable grace and style are one of the reasons she is still so well known today. Audrey Hepburn was a style icon, skilled actor, and humanitarian, and her favorite flower was the delicate yet regal Lily of the Valley. Symbolizing love, purity, chastity, and sweetness, it’s no surprise Audrey was drawn to this unique flower.
Lady Bird Johnson – Lavender Bluebell
Because of Lady Bird Johnson, nearly all almost all of the freeway in the U.S. are lined with wildflowers rather than junkyards. While First Lady, she championed the Highway Beautification Act in part due to the love of her of wildflowers. She ultimately went on to notice the National Wildflower Research Center in 1982, and that is currently called the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. Lady Bird’s preferred floral was the bluebell – that is, delicate bell-shaped flower significance gratitude, and humility.
Michelle Obama – Hydrangeas and Pink Roses
Former First Lady, distinguished lawyer, and author, Michelle Obama continuously displays grace and elegance. It’s no surprise then that Michelle’s favorite flowers are hydrangeas and roses – in particular, the pink rose. Symbolizing appreciation, love, and femininity, the pink rose perfectly embodies Michelle’s personality. So, too, does the hydrangea, which represents deep heartfelt emotion and gratitude – traits she also has.
