What do your Valentine’s Day flowers really mean?
Think of Valentine’s Day, and most likely hearts, roses and chocolate come to mind. Red roses are the classic Valentine’s flower, and are always an appropriate, safe choice.
But if you are looking for something a little bit different this year, think outside the tried-and-true. Valentine’s Day flowers don’t have to be red, and they don’t have to be roses to express love and devotion. Look to the past, and show your sweetheart how you feel with a bouquet of flowers chosen for their traditional meaning.
Some of the most common meanings of popular flowers:
Red roses: love, passion
Pink roses: friendship
White roses: I am worthy of you
Yellow roses: forgive and forget
Peach roses: Let’s get together
Red carnations: Admiration
White carnations: Innocence
Daffodil: Unrequited love
Daisies: Innocence, Loyalty
Gladiolus: I am sincere
Iris: Faith, Wisdom
