There are several types of exotic flowers to choose from, however, some are more popular and easier to obtain than others. Exotic flowers make good gifts for men as well as women. Especially exotic flowers such as bamboos, bonsai, ginger or dracaena have a touch of beauty and a sense of class and masculinity.
These kinds of exotic flowers and plants could be very impressive in a home or a contemporary apartment. Here are some good ideas for exotic plants for men:
The exotic flowers of the ginger family, the Zingiberaceae, are composed of a large group of tropical herbs. Many gingers are native to the fields and rain forests of Indo-Malaysia. Their name originates from the Greek word ziniberi.
Despite the fact that ginger is more commonly used as a spice, the ginger blossom is one of the most astounding tropical exotic flowers in its fragrance and appearance.
The exotic flower called the Heliconia is named after the great Mount Helicon. The root word comes out of Greek mythology. Nine goddess muses of the arts and sciences lived in the great Mount Helicon.
Because they have a shape that resembles a beak, Heliconias are sometimes called lobster claws or parrot flowers as well. Exclusive to Central America, South America, and the islands of the South Pacific, the heliconia is a rare beauty indeed. This wonderful wxotic flower comes in a wide variety of different kinds of shades such as pinks, yellows, oranges and reds. They are very large with extended rhizomes, and grow in damp places such as mountains, forests, and lowlands.
The good news about both ginger and heliconia, is that they do not require any sort of complicated care. All you have to do is cut the stem and be sure to use the cleanest water possible in the vase.
Anyone can add a striking touch of color to their home, or even the office with the elegant of wild exotic flowers.
