Flower Research
Flowers = HappinessThe presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed, according to behavioral research from Rutgers University. Another study demonstrates that flowers ease depression, inspire social networking and refresh memory as we age.

It Can Be Better to Give Than to ReceiveThose who send flowers, in comparison to other gifts, are viewed as successful, caring and emotionally intelligent people, according to research from Rutgers University.

The Benefits of Flowers in the HomeHarvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital behavioral research reveals that people feel more compassionate toward others, have less worry and anxiety, and feel less depressed when fresh cut flowers are present in the home. Another study reveals that people feel least positive in the early hours but reported being happier and more energetic after looking at flowers first thing in the morning.

The Benefits of Flowers and Plants in the WorkplaceWorkers' idea generation, creative performance and problem solving skills improve substantially in workplace environments that include flowers and plants, according to Texas A&M University research. Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital research found that commitment is largely influenced by one's sense of purpose, feeling of personal impact and overall trust in the organization; productivity is largely affected by the quality of human relationships including cooperative, social group moods and interaction.
