Valentine’s Blooms – Alternatives to Red Roses

Valentines Day Feb 14When most people think of Flowers & Valentine’s day it’s Red Roses that immediately come to mind. Probably because everyone knows that a Red Rose means love (it’s true meaning is “Passionate Love”). Red Roses are also a very popular flower & welcomed by most women, but they aren’t for everyone. Also for the forgetful man, the closer it gets to Valentines Day the harder it can be to find Red Roses, at least to find good quality ones.

If your lady doesn’t care for Red Roses or your a “last minute” kind of guy and can’t find them, what do you do? Never fear, there are other blooms out there who’s meaning also relates to love! So for something unique, or something you can find the “day of” try some of the following:

Yellow Chrysanthemum – When a woman receives a yellow mum it means she has a Secret Admirer

Lilac – Signifies First Love

Passion Flower – The name gives this away, it means Passion!

Sunflower – means Adoration

Red Tulip – Giving a woman (or man) red tulips means your are declaring your Love for them

Yellow Tulip – This ones my favourite, a yellow tulips meaning is “hopelessly in love”. Now what woman wouldn’t want to receive that message!
