Roses May Not Be the Best Way To Say “I Love You” on Valentine’s Day

Every Valentine’s Day, couples all over the world buy their sweeties something special to show how much they care. And, nothing says love and romance like flowers. But the go-to bouquet of a dozen roses may not be the best way to show your admiration. In fact, Valentine’s Day roses can be overpriced, undersized, and even unoriginal.

“Most people think that roses are the flower to send in a Valentine’s bouquet, but they really aren’t the best choice,” said Rehan yar Khan, CEO of Flora2000, the leading online floral delivery specialists for overseas deliveries. “There are many alternatives, such as red lilies and tulips that are truly beautiful and always last longer than a bouquet of roses.”

One reason that roses are not the ideal selection is that the rose crop is usually weak during the winter month of February. As such, the quality of roses during the Valentine season is not optimum because growers are trying to maximize sales and sometimes push many low quality roses into the bunches they sell. Given the exorbitant cost for roses during the holiday and their short peak time, the old Valentine stand-by may not be such a great option. Luckily, with so many other splendid flowers out there, there are no limits to the eye-catching original bouquets that can be arranged for any price point.

Khan also mentions that senders should remember that the message is in the color, not the flower. The following color chart can help suitors pick the appropriate bouquet to express themselves this Valentine’s Day.

  • Red – Passion, Love, and Admiration
  • Violet – Accomplishment and Admiration
  • Yellow – Happiness, Enthusiasm, and Friendship
  • Pink – Delicate, Grace, and Admiration
  • White – Purity and Sincerity
  • Orange – Satisfaction, Energy and Success
  • Green – Joy and Optimism
  • Blue – Tranquility and Harmony
  • Lilac – Sincere Love
