Nature has many greens. Interestingly, it does not have that many green blooms, though. However, you do not need to worry. Whether you are looking for some green flora for a centerpiece, a bouquet, or an arrangement, we are here to help you today as we will be showing you 30 types of green flowers!
Let us not dilly-dally now. Let us get to know our green blooms now!
1. Yoko Ono Pom
As its name suggests, the yoko ono pom looks like a pom-pom. It is round in shape with its petals bunching up closely together. It is an ideal subtle addition to flower arrangements. It is also a fine choice to make up a bouquet if you only want to use one type of flower.
This flower goes by many names. Sometimes, you might hear it referred to as green chrysanthemum.
2. Spider Anastasia Greens
The name of this flora gives a good hint of its appearance. It has thin and long petals that are spread out, not unlike the legs of a spider. It makes for an eye-catching addition to flower arrangements because of its shape and petal formation.
This flower also has several names. Sometimes, you might hear it referred to as Spider Muns.
3. Bells of Ireland
This bloom has sepals that, as you might have guessed, look like bells. Additionally, this flora is known for its length, making it a fine choice for providing height for arrangements. It can mix with other flowers, but it can also be on its own. It can also be a fine addition to a garden, but keep in mind that it is only an annual bloom.
4. Green Roses
While green is a color commonly associated with nature, many blooms do not naturally occur green and need artificial coloring to sport the hue. However, rare as they may be, green roses exist and naturally grow in nature. However, unlike other shades of roses, a green rose does not actually have petals and is scentless.
5. Green Ball Dianthus
This bloom stays true to its name. It looks like a green ball! While often described as having the appearance of a pom-pom, its difference from the yoko ono pom is clear. While the petals of this flora bunch as well, they are thinner, giving it a fuzzier look.
Are you planning to grow some green balls? You might want to keep in mind that this bloom enjoys its sunshine.
6. Green Cymbidium Orchid
The labellum of this bloom has an accent that is hard to miss. With its colors, this bloom makes for a fine choice for a decorative houseplant. On the other hand, it is also an ideal choice for a corsage. They need their sun, but not as much as other blooms. Careful when bathing them with sunshine!
7. Green Dahlia
This bloom has petals often described as spiky. Additionally, its petals are layered and bunched closely together. As with other dahlias, the green dahlia also comes in different sizes.
A bouquet could have different-sized green dahlias. On the other hand, this bloom can also go well with other floras. Timing is of the essence if you want some dahlias, as this bloom does not do well in the cold.
8. Green Carnations
This bloom is one you might want to consider growing in your garden.
Carnations are charmers in more ways than one. This bloom is considered a low-maintenance flora and is one of the longer-lasting cut flowers. Of course, we cannot forget to mention its natural beauty. With all that, this bloom makes for an ideal flower in your backyard for an emergency gift or decorative.
9. Green Cockscomb
The green cockscomb bears a resemblance to the green carnation. When it comes to appearances, one could say it is only fuzzier. However, as the name implies, it is best compared to the comb of a rooster.
If you plan to grow some, you might want to remember that while they can grow in a shady area, this bloom enjoys bathing in sunshine.
10. Gladiolus Green Star
This bloom is trumpet-shaped with petals that appear ruffled. With its appearance and height (it can grow up to 5 feet tall), it is one of the flashy floras to have in a garden. This flora enjoys its sunshine, but be careful in leaving it out in the sun if you are in a particularly hot area.
Hydrangeas are one of the flowers that change colors as they age. It is not uncommon for pink and blue hydrangeas to turn green at some point and change again to another color.
If you plan on growing some hydrangeas in your garden, you have to watch their water intake. They need lots of water, but overwatering could still be an issue.
This flora has a spathe that looks a lot like a leaf. It surrounds the spadix, which is the part that looks a lot like a rod. This bloom is not always green. While there are several varieties known to sport the hue, an anthurium could also turn green due to age or improper handling.
13. Green Tulips
Tulips are one of the few blooms that come in many different hues. It is not the most popular color, but this bloom comes in shades of green too! Aside from its natural beauty and the range of different colors it has, the tulip is a popular bloom because it is also easy to grow.
14. Flowering Tobacco
Do not let this flower fool you. It gives off a lovely smell, but do not let that lure you in! While the flower of the flowering tobacco looks like a pretty little thing, it is a poisonous little thing. If you want to grow some in your garden, it might be best to place it where kids and dogs (or anyone really) cannot get to it that easy.
15. Green Hellebores
You can say this next bloom is a shy little thing. It is a beauty, and you might have already seen it but missed it as this flora appears to be a rose that is looking down. Too shy to greet its admirers. A shy little thing, but not a harmless one. The green hellebore is also known as the stinking hellebore, a toxic bloom.
This trumpet-shaped bloom is a beauty. However, you might want to hold off putting it in flower arrangements. Some might suggest it got its name because it needs plenty of sun.
On the other hand, some might think it got its name because of its shape and petal formation. However, this bloom got its name because this flora only lasts a day.
17. Green Envy Zinnia
Grow this bloom in your yard, and your neighbors must just become green with envy! This flora gives off a round shape with its petal stacking on top of each other. A bunch of different colored zinnia can make for a lovely bouquet, but these blooms might be best as a centerpiece.
This bloom is low-maintenance and is even known to be drought-tolerant.
18. Green Ranunculus
This bloom is a multi-layered flora with ruffly petals. With its shape and petal formation, the green ranunculus is a fine addition to almost any flower arrangement. This flora is not the easiest nor the hardest blooms to grow. It does need some tender love and care if you want it to reward you, but it will not die on you that easy.
19. Green Lady Slipper Orchids
This bloom got its name as its pouch resembles a dainty slipper. This flora is one of the tougher ones to grow and maintain. For example, even the simple act of forgetting to mist it could be fatal for the flora. However, it can make for an ideal indoor plant.
20. Angelica Flower
This flower shares a resemblance with a dandelion.
Unlike many other blooms, this one is not best associated with bouquets and arrangements. This one is best associated with eating, as every part of the angelica is known to be edible! If you are looking for a green bloom that is useful in more ways than one, then the angelica might be the answer.
21. Calla Lily
This bloom looks a lot like a closed-up anthurium. Like it, this flora also has a spathe and a spadix. The calla lily is one of the easier to care for blooms. It can be both an indoor or outdoor plant. It does not need special attention, but it does need the standards – sun, water, and the occasional plant food.
22. Green Scabiosa
This bloom has a center that resembles a pincushion. On the outer layer, it has dainty-looking petals. With its center and petal formation, this flora makes for a fine addition to a flower arrangement if one wants to add some texture to the whole ensemble.
Scabiosa, in general, are considered easy-to-care-for floras. They are low-maintenance and even drought tolerant.
23. Green Hypericum Berries
As the name suggests, this bloom looks like a berry because it is one. However, it is not edible, as it is toxic and will likely cause problems when ingested. While it is a fruit, the hypericum berry is largely considered a texture flower and is widely used for flower arrangements.
24. Green Clematis
There are more than one reason this bloom can become green. However, recently, a new variety has been introduced. This one does not only have a tinge of green, nor is it only partially green. The new kind actually sports the hue. Additionally, it displays two shades of the hue!
25. Jack in the Pulpit
This bloom resembles the calla lily. Like it, it also looks like a closed anthurium and has a spathe and a spadix. This flora might not be as popular as many others on this list, but it is common bloom. You can even try growing some of this bloom yourself!
26. Lady’s Mantle
The flowers of the lady’s mantle bear a resemblance with the baby’s breath. With that, its blooms make for ideal fillers for flower arrangements. The whole shrub makes for ideal hedging too.
However, deadheading will be necessary if you want this plant and its flowers to retain its flush of color. Besides that, the lady’s mantle is considered to be easy to grow, though.
27. Mediterranean Spurge
The flower of the Mediterranean spurge does not have petals, but it does have bracts. This bloom has a yellowish-green color. However, often, it simply looks yellow.
This bloom makes for fine fillers on flower arrangements, but caution should be taken when doing so, as its sap is toxic. It might be best to leave this flora outdoors on the shrub to attract butterflies and other pollinators.
28. Peperomia Flower
Over here, we have another bloom that might remind you of the anthurium. It is a fine choice if one wants to add some greens indoors. The peperomia is a popular houseplant as it is easy to care for and maintain. Give this plant the standard care, and it will reward you handsomely by flowering often.
29. Dog’s Mercury Flower
Dog’s mercury shows off small green bloom by springtime. Its flora might look like dainty little things, but it is poisonous. It is one of the blooms that might be best left alone in the woodlands. It does not have much use. However, it could be a good indicator of how long the area has been there.
30. Green Coneflower
Finally, we come to our last bloom. The green coneflower resembles the sunflower. Also, like it, it can be drought tolerant. However, unlike the sunflower, it does not sport two hues. All of its head is green. Its petals are tinted with a light shade of green, while its center has a darker shade.
