Thinking Of Sending Flowers For Valentine’s Day, Careful, The Color May Say Something You Don’t Want To

Saturday is Valentine’s Day, you want to do the right thing. Make your other half feel loved, wanted and also let them know you were thinking about them. Did you know the color and type of flower you send could mean a different thought than what you want to convey?

As all florists know, there is something called the “Floral Code”, it’s the meaning behind the color of the flower, and the type of flower.

For instance:  Peach-colored roses mean “sympathy”, while yellow roses mean “let’s just be friends.” Which would be deadly if you are giving them to your wife or husband, they’ll wonder who got the red ones. Because Red Roses mean deep love, at least that’s what I’ve been taught by all my girlfriends and wife. So, I only give them to her and my Mom and Aunt……and maybe sister.

According to WTOP roses are over done. Tulips are the new black dress, so to speak. Specifically, pink tulips are a straightforward declaration of love, yellow tulips signify that you are hopelessly in love and red tulips stand for perfect love. If you give potted Tulips, you are going to have some next year too. (For you cheapies out there). Be careful with these, there are actually some colors that are R rated and X rated. Your 50 shades of Orchids…he he.

Giving cut roses this Valentine’s Day? Consider turning some of those expensive bouquet blooms into living shrubs in your landscape. Yes, you can. Roses are one of the easiest plants to propagate. Now to do this, you must remove the actual flowers promptly. But they’ll still put on a show.
