Sending Flowers to People with Allergies

The best flowers to give without pollen.  Avoid wattle.  Anything that smells or has a perfume or anything that drops or sheds, like lilies, etc.

Flowers that do not cause reactions are known as hypoallergenic flowers.

The Top 5 Flowers To Give to Allergy Sufferers

1. Carnation

The safest flower to get someone who is highly allergic or suffers from hayfever is an old fashioned carnation with some greenery.  They look great & do not cause your loved one grief.  They can enjoy them without suffering over them.

2. Roses

Roses do not have pollen but they do have a scent.  Not all roses, however, are off the list.  Hot house roses do not have a scent & therefore are another safe flower to gift.

3. Succulents

Catci can flower on occasion with beautiful flowers, have no pollen & are great gifts for men.

4. Lilies

Lilies are pollen free, however there is a variety that have a strong scent, Oriental Lilies (Stargazer variety particularly).  Just remember, though, lilies are dangerous to cats & can be poisonous.  If your allergic loved one has a cat, best to stay away from a lily arrangement just in case.

5.  Hydrangeas

Hydrangeas come in a variety of colours & do not have pollen.  A bunch of them can look gorgeous.

Other Flowers With Low Pollen Counts Suitable to Give to Allergy Sufferers


Mostly having a low pollen count, orchids are generally safe.


As long as your loved one does not touch the tulips alot (they can sometimes produce a rash for allergy sufferers) a bunch of these lovely flowers can work just fine.
