Tropical Flowers and Plants
Tropical flowers are some of the most prevalent blooms to send to dad. They’re much more masculine in style than that of delicate blooms that possess smaller flowers and evergreen foliage. These types of flowers are both eye-catching and a little manlier. Tropical flowers and plants tend to comprise of orchids, bromeliads, bamboo, and bonsais. They come in a range of warm hues and the blooms are perfectly complemented by the greenery of the bamboo and bonsais.

Serenata Flowers have a number of options available, all of which are suitable as Father’s Day gifts. If you’re stuck for choice, choose a flower or plant in a color that matches his favorite sports team, his birthstone color or simply his favorite hue!
