  • Rose: Perhaps the most widely given flower, this flower is the ultimate symbol of love. It has been a symbol of love since ancient times, and is associated with the 15th wedding anniversary. It is also known as the birth flower of June. If you send a coral colored rose, it is meant to show desire to your love. A lavender rose is sent to show love at first sight. A yellow rose is a sign of true love.  If you send rose moss this is considered a confession of love. A red rose is the most iconic symbol of love and passion. Sending a red rose is saying that you love someone with a pure and loyal heart. A white rose is an indication of spiritual love with innocence and truth.  It is also interesting to note that what kind of rose you send has a meaning. A single, full bloom means that I will always love you. A small rose bud is an indication of an innocent love and is also a confession of love. A rose that has no thorns means love at first sight.
  • Daisy: This is another flower that is often sent on Valentine’s Day. This flower is associated with an innocent and loyal love. This flower is to show that love that conquers all and has purity attached to it. Daisies are also associated with the fifth wedding anniversary.
  • Carnations-This flower is often sent not just for its beauty but its durability. Carnations make great arrangements, that hold together well and are affordable, which makes them a perfect choice for Valentine’s Day. There are several meanings that are attached to carnations. They can mean: fascination, distinction, and divine love. If you are choosing carnations, for your Valentine’s love you might want to pass on pink or purple. Pink Carnations stand for a mother’s love and purple carnations indicate a flighty nature, of the giver. Red carnations indicate that you are pining away for someone and white ones will indicate an innocent and faithful love. White carnations are often sent to indicate a sweetness and loveliness of the recipient and can also mean a pure and ardent love. Finally, whatever you do make sure to pass on the striped carnations for Valentine’s Day since they indicate a refusal of love.
  • Orchids-This has becomes a highly popular flower to send on Valentine’s Day, just in recent years. These exotic blooms are associated with the 28th wedding anniversary, but they also stand for a refined and rare love. They indicate beauty and they are the Chinese symbol, for many children. Today’s modern women often prefer the minimalism and impressive nature of orchids. They can make an impact with only one bloom or for a huge statement; you can send your special someone a whole bunch.
  • Tulip-Another recently popular flower to send at Valentine’s is the tulip. With the availability year round of the tulip, you can get them in February. Tulips mean that you think that your love is perfect. Red tulips are sent as a declaration of love, while yellow tulips mean a hopeless love.
