I have a bundle of a red flower, blue flower, green flower, and purple flower. Are “colorful flowers” and “a colorful bundle of flowers” both acceptable?

  • And "a bundle of colorful flowers," might be used too. Jul 14 at 22:52

    Yes, but the group noun for flowers isn't "bundle"— it's "bouquet." You'd say "colorful flowers" or "a colorful bouquet of flowers." Jul 14 at 23:38

    It's a "bunch" of flowers, rather than a "bundle", or a "bouquet" if it's been arranged to look beautiful.

"A colorful bunch of flowers" and "A bunch of colorful flowers" are both idiomatic.

It would usually be called a bunch of flowers rather than a bundle. Or you might call it a posy of flowers, though that seems to me a little old-fashioned. If there were more flowers - quite a lot more - it might be called a bouquet of flowers. Ngram.

    Thank you for shooing away the bundle here. :)
