Puppy Love!
The quirky but cute and colourful anemones are meant to symbolize anticipation. These flowers are widely available around Valentine’s Day and make a great change from the traditional red. Also available in spring are the many coloured and very fragrant hyacinths, in blue they are said to symbolise constancy or sincerity, whereas pink hyacinths are for playfulness.

Flowers for desire and passion

1) The red or yellow Iris
2) Peach blossoms
3) Larkspurs
4) Jonquils

Love at first sight
Struck by the love bug and want to show your feelings of love at first site then why not order some gladioli! These long elegant flowers make a statement as big as the one you feel.

Expressing Beauty
The elegant and refined orchid is the perfect flower to send if you wish your loved one to know you think he or she is beautiful. These exotic flowers and plants are available in a range of colours. These striking blooms last and last, especially if sent as a plant.
The fresh and peppery scent of the beautiful freesia is said to denote the trust a couple have between one another. The perfume alone is a glorious way to enchant any Valentine. To show your loving thoughts then why not send pansies. If potted or planted out they can make a great window box display and are a great lasting reminding for your loved one about how you feel.

Thinking of eloping?
Eloping these days is a pretty rare event but should the mood of the moment carry you away then send your lover spider flowers, he or she (if they know the meaning!) will be sure to be putty in your hands!

Married bliss
Valentine’s Day is not just a special day for new or young lovers. In fact if you have been married a while then you could argue that sending flowers is another way of showing how much you care. Married couples also have their own dedicated flowers to represent their love:

Lily of the Valley- Its heady fragrant bouquet says “you’ve made my life complete.”

Orange blossom- can be a wish for fertility and also a declaration of eternal love.
Let us not forget that the meaning behind so many flowers isn’t always known to those who have received them. The red rose speaks for itself but other meanings are not so obvious. In this case it is very important that if you have taken the time to research and construct a bouquet of unusual flowers, you accompany them with a note explaining why you made your choice, this helps to make the gift even more personal.

Whatever flowers you choose to give this Valentine’s Day from the historic red rose to the exotic and exciting orchid be sure that the meaning is as clear to your loved one as it is to you. Simple statement bouquets often have the most impact and are guaranteed to bring a smile to the one you love this Valentine’s Day.
