While many lists of types of flowers incorporate common favorites, this list hopes to be well-rounded and give ideas to please varying types of women. Think about what the woman in your life enjoys, where she likes to spend time, what she laughs at, and what makes her smile.A quick trip to the florist for one of those pre-done bouquets can be done anytime, but she will appreciate the extra effort you take to think about the flower types she would truly enjoy.Now there are some women who are just going to adore roses. My suggestion? Change it up a bit. Go for colors she would not expect, blue, cream and red swirled, or even one of each color. Go for old English roses, also known as country roses, that have a totally different look and feel than traditional hybrid tea roses. Do you have a woman is into retro, antique and vintage items? Go old-school the next time you order flowers. Orchids are luscious and exotic, with a scent that is going to take her back to the days of Bette Page and pin-ups. If you have a pin-up queen girlfriend or wife, be sure to match that style and send orchids.
