Valentine’s Day Flowers
People have been giving flowers to their loved ones on Valentine’s Day for centuries, but choosing the right blossoms requires some careful thought. When you purchase a bouquet, flowering plant, or dish garden that reflects the preference of the recipient and sends a heartfelt message, the meaning of the gift deepens.
Below is a list of popular Valentine’s Day flowers and the messages they convey.
Roses: Over half of all Valentine’s Day flower purchases are roses, which isn’t surprising. They are associated with romance and passion and have a beautiful fragrance. There are over 150 varieties of rose and a broad range of colors, so you’re bound to find the perfect option for your valentine.
Carnations: Carnations are another popular selection. They’re easily affordable and their frilly blossoms are both playful and feminine. Carnations are a great choice for a new relationship, because they have traditionally been linked with fascination. Like roses, they come in a multitude of colors to choose from, and they’re long-lasting.
Tulips: Simple yet elegant, tulips are perfect for valentines with traditional tastes and a conservative style. Red and pink ones represent new beginnings, making them an ideal gift for a new romance. If you and your significant other recently had an argument, yellow tulips embody positive thoughts and white ones are a lovely request for forgiveness.
Lilies: If you’re buying for someone with sophisticated tastes, lilies are a can’t-miss choice. Available in breathtaking shades of white, pink, orange, and red, they are sure to please an elegant recipient. Casa Blanca lilies in particular have a heavenly fragrance and beautify their surroundings no matter where they are placed.
Orchids: Exotic flowers like orchids are as gorgeous and lush as the tropical regions they originally hail from. Orchids add an element of fantasy to their surroundings and represent luxury, grace, and beauty. If your loved one is a big fan of adventure, buy them orchids.
Gerbera Daisies: Daisies are sweet and cheerful flowers, and the Gerbera variety is available in several gorgeous and peppy colors. A multicolored bouquet of these cheerful buds is a great way to tell someone how happy they make you.
Sunflowers: These big and bright flowers convey warmth, happiness, and lasting love. The warm yellow blooms bring the promise of summertime in the middle of winter. They also represent loyalty, making them a lovely Valentine’s Day gift idea for someone who has been special to you for a long time.
Succulents: Women also enjoy giving Valentine’s Day gifts, and an attractive dish garden containing succulents like cacti, aloe, or sempervivum would make a perfect present for the gentleman in your life. They’re easy to care for and last for months, conveying your deepest feelings well beyond Valentine’s Day.
