Most popular Valentine’s Day flowers

It’s tough to argue with popularity when it comes to romantic flowers for the 14th of February. Valentine’s Day flowers are the number one gift but many people ask themselves each year what type of blooms they should send. Here are some of the top choices for flowers to spoil your Valentine.


Roses are the the number one choice in Valentine’s Day flowers and red roses are the top option of all. Red roses are associated with passion while pink roses are perfect for newer relationships. Other options include white, purple and even yellow roses. Each colour sends a unique message. Of course, if you are unsure about the best colour for your Valentine, you can always choose a mixed bouquet.


Lilies come in various shapes and colours. Asiatic and Oriental lilies are particularly popular Valentine’s Day flowers because of their impressive appearance and multitude of colours. Alstroemeria, also known as Peruvian Lilies, are an excellent choice and known for their smaller yet no less impressive blooms. Remember, many types of lilies are fabulously fragrant and, if your Valentine has any pollen allergies, ask the florist to remove the pollen before delivery.


Carnations are readily available this time of year and, like roses, they are available in many different colours. When it comes to Valentine’s Day flowers, red carnations are always a winner. They can even be used to create themed arrangements like a heart-shaped bouquet thanks to their superb texture.


If you are looking for blooms that are always impressive, bright and beautiful, tulips are perfect! As Valentine’s Day flowers, we see many people choose red tulips but there are many other colours too. Pink, purple and yellow are all excellent choices. Like roses, you can even send a mixed bouquet.

Remember, if these popular Valentine’s Day flowers are not exactly what you are looking for, you can always choose a bouquet of your Valentine’s favourite flowers instead. When you send a bouquet of their favourites, you are showing that you care enough to pay attention to the things they love.
