How Can I Send Flowers to Someone in China?

China is a massive country, home to some 1.4 billion people. It’s also the most populous nation on Earth, with an even larger population than India—a country that’s also home to a lot of people. But while there are plenty of Indians and Chinese people around the world, it’s not every day you meet someone who was born in China and lives there still. If you have friends or family members who were born in China but now live elsewhere for work or school, sending them flowers can be a great way to show them how much you care about them. After all, what better way to say “I miss you” than with a beautiful bouquet of flowers? And if your loved one happens to be away from home because they’re going on vacation… well then sending them flowers from their home country is doubly fortuitous!

How to send flowers to China

The first thing to note is that you can’t just walk into any garden center and buy a bouquet of flowers to send to China. For starters, not all flowers are both seasonal and hardy enough to survive the shipping process from your country to theirs. And even if you find a bouquet that is, it’s likely that a florist in your area won’t have the right vase to display them in. So to send flowers to China, you’ll need to find an online florist that specializes in international flower delivery. You can then select the bouquet you want to send, put in the relevant delivery information, and pay for your purchase using a credit or debit card (or PayPal, if you prefer).

To send flowers to someone in China, you can either order the flower from an online florist in China, or from local florists that can deliver flowers to China. Keep in mind that if you order from a florist in China, you might have to find one that supports English. Also, keep in mind that due to the presence of the Great Firewall of China, people in China have to reply on VPNs (翻墙软件) to visit many foreign websites. If you order from a florist in your own country, please make sure they can indeed deliver flowers internationally.

What are the most popular flower types in China?

The most popular flower types in China are Chrysanthemums, Orchids, and Roses. And though many Chinese people might not be familiar with Western bouquets, they will all have seen these flowers in Chinese culture. The Chrysanthemum, for example, is a symbol of wealth and honor in China. In many Western countries, they’re also used to celebrate Halloween and the New Year, but in China, they’re a symbol of Autumn. Orchids are one of China’s national flowers, and are used in celebrations of longevity and friendship. Oranges, on the other hand, are a symbol of prosperity in Chinese culture. Roses, meanwhile, are popular for Valentine’s Day in China, but are also chosen for a wide variety of other celebrations and special occasions.

What are the best days of the week to send flowers to China?

In terms of what day you should send flowers to China, there are two things to consider: the best time of year to send flowers to China, and the best time of day to send flowers to China. The first thing to think about is that Chinese New Year is an extremely popular time to send flowers to China. This is the occasion when many Chinese people send flowers to family members and close friends, so if you want your bouquet to stand out, you’ll likely want to send it before or after this massive celebration. Or you could consider sending flowers to China on Chinese Valentine’s Day, which happens on the 7th day of the Chinese New Year. The best time of day to send flowers to China is in the early evening. Many Chinese people will be either at work or in school during the day, so you’ll want to arrange for your bouquet to be delivered at a time when they can appreciate it.

How much does it cost to send flowers to China?

The price you pay to send flowers to China will be determined by several factors, including your budget and the type of bouquet you choose. However, in general, you can expect to pay anywhere from $25 to as much as $200 for a bouquet of flowers to be delivered to China. That being said, there are a couple of things you can do to lower the price of your bouquet. First, make sure you check to see if any coupons or special offers are available for online florists that deliver to China. You might also want to consider buying a cheaper bouquet, or even just a single stem to represent a larger bouquet—after all, what matters most is that you’re showing your loved one you care.


Flowers are a great gift for pretty much any occasion, and they’re a particularly fitting gift for a loved one who is away from home. If you have friends or family members who were born in China but now live in another country, sending them flowers is a great way to show them you care. China is home to many of the world’s most populous cities, and while you might not ever meet someone who was born and raised in China, it’s good to know that they’re out there. And now you know how to send flowers to China, too!
