"Pearson’s article also mentions the East Texas Arboretum in Athens, which is home to several varieties of tulip at this time of year. These flowers are renowned for their beauty and symbolize eternal life, as well as the new beginnings that come with spring. They also symbolize love and affection (depending on their color), which would explain why some couples have had spring weddings in the Arboretum. Since the city of Bryan, TX is over a hundred miles from both Tyler and Athens, it’s good to know you don’t have to travel that far just to bask in all the spring flowers. Simply consult your local Bryan, Texas florist from stores like Nan’s Blossom Shop and you’ll be able to enjoy the flowers of the new season right in your own home."

"Still another common sight in the state is the lantana, which thrives in Texas’ warm climate (particularly South and Central). The plant itself can reach heights of about 6 feet while the flowers come in an eye-catching variety of colors including blue, orange, and yellow. According to experts, lantana leaves can also be used to relieve pain from insect bites and even the prickly sensations caused by chicken pox. There truly is more to Texas than food and tourist destinations, and nowhere else is this more apparent than in its flowers. Have established florists in College Station like those from Nan’s Blossom Shop help you incorporate the above into any floral arrangement, and you’ll be sure to agree."
