What are traditional Hanukkah flowers?

As you might notice perusing delivery sites for Hanukkah flower arrangements, there aren’t definitive flower types particular to this holiday. Instead, as covered in this Time article, traditional flowers for Hanukkah are typically blue or white in color. The reasons for this are numerous. Firstly, blue and white are the colors of Israel’s flag.

Secondly, Judaism recognizes these colors as important throughout religious practices and customs. The Jewish prayer shawl, known as a tallit, is traditionally made from a white fabric that has black and blue stripes. Indeed, blue is a color consistently referenced in the Torah and other religious texts in Judaism, making it an obvious color to celebrate Hanukkah with. 

White, of course, isn’t an unusual color used to celebrate holidays around this time of year. White blossoms are often used in Christmas arrangements too, marking a noticeable contrast to the autumnal reds, oranges, and yellows we see in Thanksgiving floral deliveries

So while there might not be traditional Hanukkah flowers to send or enjoy the delivery of during this celebration, there are definitely certain colored blooms to try and use in Hanukkah floral arrangements - blue and white.

The best Hanukkah flowers ideas

The first thing to keep in mind when considering the best flowers for delivery is that Hanukkah is a celebration that lasts eight days. This means that whatever blossoms you choose to use in an arrangement or centerpiece, you want to select blooms that are long-lasting and can remain fresh and vibrant throughout the celebrations.

With this in mind, and knowing the popular colors of this season are white and blue, here’s some of the most popular Hanukkah flowers that you can order in a delivery bouquet.

White flowers


Lilies are generally considered one of the most traditional Hanukkah flowers and so feature in many delivery bouquets - like the sensational Hanukkah arrangements at FromYouFlowers (many of which also come with same-day delivery!) 

Whether you choose a delivery of blooms featuring lilies alone or adorn them with some added greenery and smaller white blooms, like white carnations, a Hanukkah bouquet of lilies will convey purity and peace.

On that note, peace lilies are also a great delivery option if hoping to give a floral gift to a friend or loved one for Hanukkah. Order one for delivery at for a beautiful Hanukkah present that will last long past the celebrations.
