Are roses flowers or plants?
According to the dictionary, roses are actually not flowers but plants because they have a woody trunk. Colloquially, however, we count roses as flowers. This is particularly due to the fact that they are a very popular gift and therefore also one of the most popular cut flowers.
What exactly are cut flowers?
Cut flowers are grown for sale and grown in large numbers, and once cut they adorn our vases, bouquets and arrangements. Cut flowers are in all our bouquets and will stay fresh for at least seven days with fresh water and some cut flower fertilizer.
Cut flowers from Germany
When it comes to the most popular cut flowers that can grow in Germany, we distinguish again between native and exotic flowers that have been brought to us from more southern countries or actually from other continents.

The most popular cut flowers in Germany
The most popular cut flowers in Germany are roses, tulips, gerberas and lilies. For us, the undisputed queen of all flowers is the rose. Incidentally, most roses, gerberas and lilies are available as cut flowers all year round. The tulip season, on the other hand, begins in January and ends in April.
The peony has an even shorter flowering period: this beautiful rose flowers from May to June and is therefore only available for about six weeks a year. The peony is therefore in great demand every year and an eye-catcher in every flower vase.
Five tips to keep cut flowers fresh for longer
- Cut any flowers that have a soft stem just before placing them in the water. Please cut woody stems at an angle. Please use a very sharp knife or florist scissors to protect the stem.
- Give your flowers plenty of space in a large, clean vase.
- Supply your flowers with fresh and lukewarm water. Change the water every two days.
- Cut flower fertilizer provides your flowers with additional nutrients.
- Now find the right location for your flowers. Most flowers are most comfortable in partial shade.
What exactly are wildflowers?
Wild flowers, like many herbs and shrubs, grow in forests and meadows, i.e. in the great outdoors. They are not cultivated like cut flowers.
These wild flowers bloom in spring and summer and are among the most popular garden flowers in Germany:
violet, daisy, hyacinth, crocus, daffodil, tulip, pansy, poppy, peony, rose, lily of the valley, ornamental onion, marguerite, snapdragon, marigold, hydrangea. These wildflowers bloom in autumn and winter:
