Roses are the most classical choice for Valentine’s Day; they never go out of style. Their beauty is so spectacular that they have yet to be dethroned as the queen of gardens. There’s a great variety of roses, so you can choose the one that best fits your tastes. However, you can’t go wrong on Valentine’s Day with a traditional bouquet of red roses, as they symbolize the love and passion that exists between two people, so, for this reason, it’s one of the flowers to give on Valentine’s Day, preferred by everyone.
Just like as is the case with roses, at Verdissimo we have a wide variety of chrysanthemums: anastasia, focus, and sharp. All three types of chrysanthemums make a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day, as long as you keep in mind the different colors that this flower comes in and what they signify. For that, we recommend reading the article “Say It With Flowers… The Meaning of Chrysanthemums.”
Gardenias represent two totally opposite things. On the one hand, they symbolize the purity and sweetness of romantic partners, and on the other hand they’re a symbol of secret love and hidden relationships between two people. The gardenia is one of the Valentine’s Day flowers that can make a great choice because it’s also perfect for home décor.
In the 18th century orchids became the flower of choice of the upper classes. Orchids of any color are very elegant and sophisticated flowers, but as a Valentine’s Day gift we definitely recommend the pink orchid which represents pure, open love. It makes quite a statement!
Carnations, especially red carnations, are one of the best flowers for Valentine’s Day because they symbolize love, passion and admiration. And who doesn’t admire their partner? These flowers also are capable of conveying joy and helping you remember all the good moments with your partner.
Despite hydrangea’s bad reputation, these beautiful flowers are perfect for combining with other flowers in Valentine’s Day bouquets. These flowers provide a lot of volume and are very striking due to their bright colors and round shape.
You can find different types of lilies, available in different colors. Each type of lily has a different meaning. For example, you can select white lilies to convey seduction and sweetness at the same time. Also, you can combine them with other types of suitable flowers in a Valentine’s Day bouquet.
If you give tulips, you’re telling your partner that life is more cheerful with them at your side. They’re a symbol of joy, regardless of color. There are thousands of different varieties and they’re all extremely beautiful. Also, as you may know, they’re the most emblematic flowers of Holland, where they’re regularly given as gifts.
The laceleaf flower is known around the world as the plant of love. This is due to its large and lovely heart-shaped petals. This delicate flower represents passion, love and desire between two people.
Jasmine is a good flower to give on Valentine’s Day because its flowers represent loyalty and faithfulness in a relationship. These flowers are internationally known for their great beauty.
The Gerbera is a very popular flower all over the world. Currently, it is also used for decoration due to its great beauty and all the possibilities that it offers. It is a perfect flower for Valentine’s Day because it creates environments perfect for decoration, and, depending on the chosen colour, you will be transmitting one type of feeling or another.
In olden days, these flowers were famous for their aromatic and medicinal properties. Today, they have become fashionable for their great beauty and for being suitable also to give as a gift and even to decorate spaces. And what does the Tuberose represent? It’s the flower of risk and adventure.
The Saint Valentine’s day legend
According to legend, the emperor Claudio II prohibited young people from getting married as he believed if they were free from ties, they would compete better in the battlefields.
Valentine was a prestigious priest from Rome who defied this prohibition and continued to marry young couples, unbeknownst to the emperor. When the emperor found out, he was livid and sent Valentine to prison. Behind bars, he performed the miracle of restoring the sight of the daughter of one of the prison guards. After this happened, all of the guard’s family converted to Christianity, but they could not stop the furious emperor from ordering Valentine’s execution on the 14th of February.
The young girl whose sight had been restored by Valentine planted an almond tree in front of his grave. Since then, flowers have become the symbol of friendship and love. The 14th of February, Lovers’ Day, is celebrated all over the world.
The custom of giving flowers has survived since then. Now, the most popular flowers on the 14th of February are red roses, the quintessential flowers of passion and love.
Each rose colour is associated with certain characteristics: pink-happiness, orange-friendship, blue-peace and red-passion.
