Okay, Valentine’s Day is Tuesday...so don’t forget. And sure, you can go the candy and cut roses routine (make sure you pick the right color roses to send the right message), but I say go the living plant route…” Clark, it’s the gift that just keeps on giving.” So, what are we talking about here? Miniature roses (which can be grown indoors during the winter and planted outside in the spring), African Violets, Orchids (yes, they really are easy to grow, and those flowers can last a couple months!), potted Spring Bulbs in flower (which can be replanted in the garden later in the spring), and on and on.The selection of living plants available today is unreal. But here’s one that I really love, that is easy to grow, lovely foliage, grows in many light conditions, has gorgeous flowers that are shaped like a heart (actually a spathe /bract not a flower), re-flowers on a regular basis, and just keeps saying I love you year after year. It’s called Anthurium, and as far as I’m concerned, it is the ultimate Valentine’s Day Flower! It’s a symbol of exotic beauty and ultimate expression of love for your Valentine.You’ll find them available in many colors, but the reds are the most common selections. By the way, there are many indoor plants which have heart shaped leaves or very colorful. Add a ‘pick’ heart or two and a bow and those are perfect for a Valentines gift as well.
Meaning of Rose Colors: If you decide to add some cut roses to your Valentine’s Day gift giving, make sure you pick the right colors to send the right message.Be cautious! 😊
Red: “I love you” Nothing says “I love you” like red roses. Red symbolizes love, beauty, courage, respect, romantic love, and even congratulations.
White: “I am the one for you” While many send red roses on Valentine’s Day, surprise your Valentine this year with white roses that symbolize true love, purity, innocence, reverence, humility, youthfulness, and charm.
Pink: “Thank you” Perfect for a friend that you want to honor on Valentine’s Day, pink roses show appreciation, grace, perfect happiness, admiration, gratefulness, and gentleness.
Yellow: “We’re friends and I care about you” Another way to honor your friendship, yellow stands for joy, gladness, friendship, delight, new beginnings, welcome back, and remembrance.
Yellow with Red Tip: “I’m falling in love with you” The beautiful sunset roses let that new person in your life know that you want more than friendship—they symbolize falling in love.
Orange/Coral: “I want you in my life” Orange lets the receiver know that you are passionate about them. The color means desire, enthusiasm, and fascination.
Red and White Together: “We are a great match” Send a mixed bouquet of red and white roses to your Valentine to signify unity.
Peach: “Let’s make this a memorable Valentine’s Day” If you are ready to say, “Let’s get together,” peach roses are the ones to choose as the rose color symbolizes intimacy.(proflowers)
