During spring and summer many people suffer from hay fever. Constant sneezing, watery and itchy eyes… In the spring, flowers burst wide open and nature puts on a beautiful display of colour. For hay fever sufferers, it’s bittersweet, as blossom heralds the start of months of sniffing. With the hazards of hay fever in mind, here’s a special bouquet for everyone allergic to pollen, with flowers that shouldn’t irritate the sinuses.
Hay fever bouquet flower #1: Rose
The classic flower comes in all shapes and sizes, and luckily roses only release small amounts of pollen into the air, making them a safe choice for hay fever sufferers. To further minimise pollen exposure, opt for tight-budded varieties, which are available in a variety of appealing colours.
Hay fever bouquet flower #2: Gypsophila
Gypsophila is a great floral team player. Also known as baby’s breath, the green stems with tiny white or pink flowers do amazingly well as filler flowers in almost every bouquet. It’s been one of the most popular cut flowers for years.
Hay fever bouquet flower #3: Stock
There are as many as fifty varieties of stock, almost all of which are equally colourful — but the white variant is perhaps the most beautiful for spring.
Hay fever bouquet flower #4: Yarrow
Hundreds, if not thousands of tiny flowers top the deep green leaves of a sprig of yarrow. This flower gives a bouquet a lush, playful effect and comes into its own when clustered together.
Hay fever bouquet flower #5: Fritillaria
The hanging flowers of fritillaria comes in versions both large and small, and blooms in beautiful colours: red, orange, yellow and purple white with an intriguing chessboard pattern. There are so many varieties to choose from, but luckily, they’re all low pollen, so will work wonderfully in a hay fever bouquet.
