One of HR’s biggest puzzles when attending to tasks of the office is trying to figure out what varieties of plants and flowers to order from their Boston florists. Why is this challenging? Office buildings tend to run warmer than the average climate of other work places so only certain varieties will hold up for a full week. The other component of the predicament is that you have an eclectic group of people to be weary of who might have allergies or a general dislike for certain fragrances and textures. Because of this, you need to be careful to order pieces that are low in pollen count and odorless, which shortens the list of possibilities even further.
Does that mean to skip the weekly flower order all together? Heck no!
There are several options towards solving this pickle of a problem and all are easily attainable just by contacting your florist. Check out these perfect flora and fauna for your office and watch the employees and clients stand in awe of their beauty.

You might want to consider using hydrangea for two reasons; one they hate the cold so a warmer temperature is better for them and two if they are watered regularly, they will last for weeks. Green is the strongest in many cases, so you might want to coordinate that color in your order.
