Every flower represents a different emotion. So that’s why we’ve put together a list of the most romantic flowers to give your beloved for Valentine’s Day or any other special occasion.


If your loved one is sweet and tender-hearted, lilies could be a great choice to express your affection. Each variety has a different meaning, but the most common meaning is purity and fertility. Lilies are often associated with fresh life and rebirth.
Pink is the obvious choice to show love and admiration to your sweetheart as pink lilies symbolize femininity.

White lilies are another popular choice, however, they’re most commonly chosen as sympathy flowers for funerals or weddings as they symbolise rebirth.


Geraniums will add a vibrant spark of colour and are sure to put a smile on your partner’s face. Geraniums are associated with positive feelings like happiness, good health and friendship. It’s also thought that they symbolize a new beginning in love.

Geraniums make a great alternative to roses if you’re looking for something a little different.


If you’re after something a little more exotic, orchids are a great way to show your beloved how much you care. Orchids symbolize luxury, beauty and love and come in a variety of different colours. In ancient Greece, orchids were commonly associated with virility!

Orchids tend to come with a higher ‘status’ than roses and make a beautiful and unique floral gift. Love is sure to blossom between you and your partner with a romantic flower like the orchid.


Who doesn’t love a tulip? Tulips are classic flowers that symbolise pure and deep love. Tulips are the ideal flower to give to your soul mate or anyone you hold unconditional love for. Tulips come in a variety of different colours, and each colour also comes with its own meaning.

  • Red tulips – Eternal love and passion – ooh la la!
  • Pink tulips – Affection, care and love
  • Yellow tulips- Good luck and prosperity
  • White tulips – Respect, purity and honour


Sunflowers symbolise longevity, pure love and adoration. With their striking look and amazing flower head, it’s pretty easy to see where they got their name from. Sunflowers also follow the sun as it travels across the sky each day and they’re also thought to be highly spiritual flowers.

If you’d like to brighten your beloved’s day and add a little more sunshine into their life, you can’t go past the beautiful sunflower!
