Honor Your Unsung Heroes With Plants

Make a note of May 6 through May 12—it’s both Teacher and Nurse Appreciation Week. You’ll want to honor the heroes in your life who empower, nurture and educate so many and often for very little in return. Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts has the perfect offering for the super heroes in your life, the nurses and teachers who are also mentors, family, friends, colleagues and neighbors.

Hydrangea are one of the most universally beloved flowering plants around. When they billow from the garden, they’re admired. When they cluster like clouds from a floral design, they enchant. In our view, there’s no better gift than giving the whole plant itself, a symbol of both resilience and beauty. The cotton candy pink of our Hydrangea Blooming Plant may look feminine, but those flat, dark leaves and roots firmly planted remind us that this is a flower of both strength and beauty. Nepthytis is a bright, health-giving plant that looks great in the home or office and requires little care or maintenance (a nice feature for someone who gives enough already).

Offer the super heroes in your life something that really reflects their distinctive character. Both plants can be replanted or enjoyed from the basket they come in, but they always send a message of affection and admiration.
