Room numbers, any alternate first or last names and if you are sending flowers for maternity the mother is often listed under her maiden name. What we usually recommend sending is:

  • A smaller floral arrangement as opposed to a larger one as there is very limited space in a hospital room. One that can sit on the window ledge or not take up too much room on a side table
  • Longer lasting, hearty flowers (carnations, mums, alstromeria, orchids)- hospitals can be a little warm which will not fare well for delicate/more sensitive flowers (roses, hydrangea, iris)
  • Flowers with little or no scent. Good flowers to stay away from are lilies, freesia & mimosa as they may cause allergic reactions
