Valentine’s Day is one of the most romantic days of the year and the most popular gift for new and married couples is flowers. Flowers are probably the most romantic sign of your love and affection! Choosing the perfect flowers for your loved one can be difficult…. do you go with traditional roses or something else? Here are the seven most romantic flowers in our book.
1st roses. Maybe clichéd, but still very romantic. The color you choose for the rose means different things. Red is for passion, perfect for the hot young couple just getting into their affair, pink is romance, ideal for chastity couples and married couples, or anyone who is just in love. Stay away from yellow, these here mean friendship and are not romantic at all!
2nd tulips. Tulips traditionally mean “perfect love” and are really a great alternative to the rose. Tulips come in a variety of colors, so it’s pretty easy to find one that appears in your lover’s favorite color, even if it’s black. This simple flower really symbolizes the perfection of your love, with its shaped petals and its beautiful cup. A simple bouquet of three or five tulips is ideal to give to your darling this Valentine’s Day.
3rd lilies. These elegant flowers are stunning when presented individually or in a grape, and are best used when not combined with a filler. They are available in various colors including red, white and yellow and symbolize beauty…. just the thing to show your girl how beautiful you find her. Although expensive, lilies really embody beauty and create a very romantic environment.
4th lilac. These amazing flowers are most appreciated for their wonderful aroma and their tiny, delicate flowers that grow in cone-like grapes. They can be picked directly from the bush and presented to your loved one as a beautiful Valentine’s Day gift. Traditionally available in shades ranging from delicate lavender to dark violet, lilacs have now also been bred in white and pink, all beautiful romantic shades.
5. carnations. Another rather traditional flower is the carnation. They are frilly and feminine and come in shades of pink, white and red as well as more breathtaking shades of purple, green and even blue. Some carnations even have two colors, with the outer edge of the petals being red or pink, while the main flower is white. They can be quite stunning, but they are usually the cheaper of the available flowers. These flowers last longer than most others, up to 3 weeks after cutting.
6. orchids. The importance of this delicate flower is varied, including seduction, love, beauty, and refinement. Although often quite expensive, a single orchid can be a nice way to tell someone that you are taking care of them and are considered quite romantic. Besides, it’s as far away from the traditional rose as it gets!
7. wildflowers. This is more a type of flower than a particular species. There are literally thousands of different wildflowers that grow on fields and farms all over the country. What makes this so romantic is that you really have to go out and take the time to pick and choose the flowers for your favorite. Giving wildflowers for Valentine’s Day will surely impress your girl as it is a very romantic gesture.
