The Best Low Cost Flowers

June 9, 2011



Flowers are one of the best gifts to give but sometimes, they can be a little pricey. Here at, MyVirtualFlower, we believe giving someone special a floral gift shouldn’t cost half your paycheck, so we decided to make it easier for our budget conscious readers and compile a list of occasions with corresponding low-cost flowers to give. Hope this helps save you some green!


Hydrangea- These flowers have very full blooms and come in a variety of colors. A little goes a long way with hydrangeas so you don’t have to spend a lot. Try grabbing a couple of stems and tying them together with brightly colored ribbon- this looks lovely but won’t cost you dearly.

Orchid- Just buy a potted orchid (for about $12.00). They come in many colors and are very low maintenance- you only need to water about once a week. They also last for a long time, which makes them a great birthday gift.

Daisy- Daisies are low-cost and very cheerful. Great for a celebration!


Sunflower- One stem of a sunflower is a bright and whimsical gift. I don’t suggest it for an anniversary but for a date it’s perfect!

Wildflowers- These are beautiful and come in so many bright colors. Plus, you can literally pick them for free! Add some nice greenery and you have yourself a bright and lovely bouquet your date/significant other won’t ever forget.

Carnations- These aren’t just filler flowers. They are low-cost and come in many beautiful colors. Buying these in bulk is even better. Wrap them up nicely and they won’t ever be thought of as “cheap”.

Iris- Just a single stem is a very sweet and personal gift.

House Warming/ Just Because

Carnations- Again, grabbing a bouquet of these in bright colors is a wonderful gift.

Gerbera Daisies- These can get a little pricey depending on where you get them. I recommend getting them from a grocer rather than a florist. Just a few of these bright buds goes a long way so you don’t have to buy too many to make a statement.

Petunias- You can pick up a potted petunia for less than $10 and they make a wonderful gift. Another plus is that these are fairly low maintenance.


Any other low-cost flower ideas???
