Romantic flowers for Valentine's Day

This year around 250 million stems will be sold for Valentine’s Day globally – bringing a whole new meaning to flower power!

Flowers are a beautiful way of saying ‘I Love You’ – so, if you need extra help choosing special blooms to give your loved one this year, here’s our favourite romantic flowers for Valentine’s Day.


Red roses are the number one option in the world when it comes to romantic flowers for Valentine’s Day. Red roses might seem like a bit of a cliché, but they’re extremely popular for a reason. They’ve symbolized love throughout history. In Greek mythology, the red rose was created by the goddess of love Aphrodite, and in Roman times, newly married couples wore rose crowns and covered their beds in rose petals.


Red roses are ideal for extravagant love gestures, but sometimes a more subtle approach is called for. Pink roses make an excellent substitute, especially if you’re still dating and don’t want a bouquet that shouts ‘I love you’ just yet. Light pink flowers represent grace, happiness, and sweetness, whereas deeper pink roses represent admiration and appreciation. They won’t be overly intense, but they’ll convey that you care about someone and that they make you happy.


Orchids are a brilliant choice for this special day because they represent unity, love, beauty, and unbridled passion. These beautiful and rare wildflowers embody the spirit of love and resilience in relationships because they grow easily and quickly and are sturdy flowers. Orchids bloom for months or even years, serving as a perfect reminder of your love every time your date passes by the flowers.


These cheerful beauties are the perfect flowers to send to someone to brighten their day. The warm and bright sunflower represents warmth, happiness, and loyalty and is the perfect mood lifter. A cute choice that will surprise your partner.


Symbolising charm, Ranunculus has been used to let someone know how charmed you are by them. These mesmerising gorgeous flowers come in a variety of colours  and bloom in late winter and early spring, another reason why they make the perfect Valentine’s Day flowers. The vibrant and delicately swirled Ranunculus blooms allude to romance, charisma, and radiance.


The Calla Lily is a subtle but equally appealing option that deserves to be highlighted in the world of romantic flowers. Calla Lilies are a unique way to express love on this special occasion.


Although they’re more well known as a herald of spring, tulips, actually have one of the most deeply romantic meanings, as they signify a perfect and undying love. As with most flowers, red tulips are most closely associated with romance, but other tulip colours also have meanings relevant to Valentine’s Day. Pink tulips convey happiness and affection, and yellow tulips represent joy and cheer. Striking purple tulips are linked to royalty, nobility, and elegance – perfect for someone who deserves to be treated like a king or queen!  


Lilies have predominantly been associated with love, devotion, purity, and femininity. These long-stemmed flowers could be a fragrant reminder of your love and commitment to your partner. Lilies are historically relevant in many cultures, representing fertility and motherhood, thanks to Hera and Zeus’s story in Greek mythology.


These are a big flower in a small package. Freesias just can’t be beaten in scent – their alluring sweet and spicy citrusy fragrance is simply irresistible. Freesias are great for Valentine’s Day, as they express complete trust in someone (something you want in a relationship). The different colours also have various meanings, with white freesias being a popular addition to bridal bouquets as they symbolise innocence and purity. Red freesias are the most stereotypically romantic, representing passion, and they are also unusually the most fragrant type of freesia.


Red Gerberas are a wonderful choice for Valentine’s Day because their vibrant red colour symbolises love and passion, perfectly capturing the spirit of this special day. Their large, striking blooms are visually stunning and add a touch of beauty to any arrangement. While red roses are traditional, opting for Red Gerberas shows thoughtfulness and uniqueness in your choice of flowers, helping you stand out. Additionally, Gerberas have a relatively long vase life, ensuring your Valentine can enjoy them for days after receiving them.
