Presenting flowers to a person who’s ill or in the process of recovery, could help brighten their mood and the environment they are in. Generally, if they are in the hospital, flowers should not be overly fragrant. Irises and tulips can be vibrant and add a touch of color to dreary hospital rooms. If they are at home, marigolds represent resilience while yellow flowers, such as daffodils representing rebirth, are bright and cheery. Do avoid yellow day lilies, however, as they are associated with funerals.
