4 Flowers Perfect for Valentine’s Day

4 Flowers Perfect for Valentine’s Day

Roses are a beautiful option, but consider these 4 alternatives for a unique touch.

Roses are always a beautiful, traditional option, but if you’re looking for red flowers this Valentine’s Day that are unique and striking, here are some gorgeous ideas.

1. Heart Roses
People tend to order a dozen red roses because they are plentiful and convenient to get at the last minute. If you like roses, continue to give them and use them in arrangements.

Consider shopping for different colours — pink, purple, and white — to keep the sentiment of giving flowers but also keep costs under control.

Tip: While a big bouquet makes a loving declaration, add orchids and hydrangeas for a modern touch. Look out for a rose variety called "heart."

2. Amaryllis
These large-petal flowers come in varieties of red, burgundy and red-striped. They’re stunning by themselves or in a bouquet mixed with roses and hydrangeas. Amaryllis is a flowering bulb, so it can be showcased as a single plant or in a cluster as a centrepiece.

Tip: Don’t mix them with more than three flowers, as you don’t want to overwhelm their elegant beauty.

3. Peonies
Peonies come in exquisite red and burgundy colours for Valentine's Day. These lush, sumptuously shaped blooms also come in fuchsia and soft shades of pinks.

Tip: Arrangements can be all red or mixed with the palest pink for pretty contrast. Nestle them together with a white hydrangea for an enchanting combination.

4. Tulips
Tulips are another plentiful flower during Valentine’s Day. They can be simple and stylish by themselves or mixed with flowers, such as roses, orchids and blush in shades of hot pink. Mixing hot pinks with red is very romantic in any arrangement.

Tip: Flower prices soar around Valentine's Day, especially for red flowers. Go shopping at the flower market, farmers market or grocery store where costs can be significantly lower. Also, mix and match colours like white and pink to offset the cost!]

Tip: If budget isn’t a concern, make sure to order your flowers at least a week in advance from a florist. Regardless of how simple or extravagant the arrangement, beautiful flowers will help you celebrate the heart-warming tradition and decorate your home.
