Allergy-Friendly Flowers to Buy for Allergy Sufferers

Browse the latest bouquets in our collection below

Pollen is the biggest culprit for allergies. Most people with an adverse immune response suffer from hay fever when they breathe in pollen and other allergens such as animal fur. Some common symptoms include sneezing, watery eyes, coughing, stuffy nose, itchy throat or mouth, earache, decreased sense of taste or smell, etc.

As with other allergies, the best solution is to avoid coming into contact with the allergens. But we all know how hard that can be. If you take preventive measures and still experience the symptoms mentioned, you can take over the counter medicines that work as decongestants or antihistamines. A good example of antihistamines that we’re familiar with is cetirizine.

What flowers are allergy-friendly?

Most allergies are reported in the spring and summer seasons. Flowers too, bloom during the summer months. This shows that there’s some correlation between the two. Flowers are common gifts given during most celebrations. But you have to put into consideration whether or not the recipient is allergic before sending flowers.

Here’s a list of allergy-friendly flowers that you can get for allergy sufferers:

  • Carnations

With carnations, there’s no more worrying about itchy eyes or a runny nose. This means that these ruffled, ball-shaped blooms can be added to any floral arrangement.

  • Daffodils

These bright blooms are a spring flower staple. They are not pollen-free but are generally considered to be allergy-free. However, we still don’t recommend that people who suffer from allergies to handle daffodils.

Daffodils are insect-pollinated and so they produce less pollen than flowers that are wind-pollinated.

  • Hydrangeas

These flowers add fullness, elegance, and the best part is that they’re pollen-free.

These large blooms come in a wide range of colors such as ivory, yellow, pink, blue, and others. Hydrangeas are also available all year round. Can it get better than that?

  • Orchids

If you’re hyper-allergenic, you do not have to worry about orchids. These are not pollen-free but luckily, their pollen is quite sticky. This means that it does not become airborne easily.

Orchids are also available all year round and are typically seen in tropical floral arrangements. Another benefit is that they’re so easy to care for.

  • Roses

Roses are very popular and universal. You’ll easily find them in various settings such as weddings, birthdays, grand openings, in the yard as garden plants, etc. and in any season. these hypoallergenic flowers have low-pollen count and come in a ton of colours. What’s more, is that they last a long time – about 5 to 8 days.

  • Tulips

These are another great allergy-free option for people who are looking for hypoallergenic flowers. Most tulips are available all year-round but there’s a larger selection during spring. Standard tulips come in a wide range of colors and varieties as well.

Most flowers are not allergy-friendly because they contain too much pollen. This is because the amount of pollen on a flower determines whether or not a flower is allergenic or not. If you are planning an event and would maybe, need to make flower heads, you should do a test run to make sure that everything goes well. For anyone who’s in search of a 100% allergy-proof alternative, we recommend artificial flowers.
