Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and you know what that means: dinner, dates, chocolates and flowers. You know your special someone is one in a million and anything but generic, so try someone new this year if you’re tired of sending roses! Take our advice, go with one of these popular yet unique flower types for your Valentine’s Day bouquet this year.
Beautiful, fragrant and a sign of luxury, orchids are a perfect choice for Valentine’s Day. They come in many colors, and while they are delicate and must be carefully maintained, their beauty makes all the work worth it. Gift your special someone an Architectural Orchid Plant, a stunningly elegant purple phalaenopsis orchid plant delivered in a modern geometric planter. Or, send them orchids as part of a larger bouquet, like the Exquisite Elegance, a dreamy arrangement of pastel orchids, roses, succulents and amaranthus.
Carnations have a strong, sweet fragrance and come in a variety of colors, each carrying a unique meaning. While, in general, they express love, fascination and distinction, white carnations symbolize pure love and good luck, light red symbolizes admiration and dark red represents deep love and affection. Purple implies capriciousness, and pink represents a mother’s love. Teleflora bouquets made with carnations include the Whisper Soft, a delicate pink bouquet of alstroemeria and carnations, and the Desert Sunrise, a beautiful and unique arrangement of roses, lilies, carnations and an echeveria succulent in light shades of peach, white and dusty green, delivered in a bamboo cube.
Lilies are a family that includes many other specific types of flowers within it. Asiatic lilies specifically make for a beautiful addition to any bouquet. Asiatic lilies, while simple and understated in shape, add a bold accent to whatever arrangement they are added to. They come in many colors, but popular shades include white, lilac, pink and yellow. Lilies are included in Teleflora bouquets like the Garden Romance, the Desert Sunrise, and Lovely Luxe.
Tulips are spring-blooming perennial bulbs and can live for over two weeks once cut, provided they receive enough water and nutrients. With a universally recognizable shape with a touch of roundness to them, tulips add a touch of cuteness to any arrangement. Tulips come in dozens of colors and are farmed in rows by shade. This Valentine’s Day, opt for a sweet and simple bouquet of just tulips in a shade like Precious Pink or Radiantly Red. Or, choose instead an arrangement like the fresh, woodsy Tulips and Pine. Tulips are also used as accents in bouquets like Spring Romance and the Full of Love bouquet.
