Pink roses are symbol of grace and elegance, they have the meaning of admiration. Pink Roses can also convey gratitude and appreciation.

Valentine’s Day History

Valentine’s Day dates back to the third century in Rome, when Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers, in the process outlawing marriage for young men.

As a result, Valentine ‘a young priest’ so enraged by the decision, decided to risk punishment by continuing to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. Claudius eventually discovered Valentine’s actions and sentenced him to death. Whilst imprisoned awaiting his fate, Valentine fell in love with his jailer’s daughter and sent a note to her, signing it “From Your Valentine” – an expression we still use today.

Valentine was executed on February 14th, 270 AD, with the date later declared a day to honour Valentine’s actions by Pope Gelasius.

The history of sending flowers to a loved one on Valentine’s Day flowers comes from the old-fashioned custom of sending floral bouquets to pass on non-verbal messages.

Valentine’s Flowers

Valentines day is an annual commemoration held on February 14 celebrating love and affection between intimate companions. Its the perfect time to share this emotion of love through cards,gifts & the most amazing experiences. It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards .

Valentines flowers are beautiful, bright and joyful with an array of gentle colours including the most popular red and pink. The colour of the Valentines flowers you send also plays an important role in conveying your sentiments. Sending yellow or light pink flowers to a friend communicates good friendship. White flowers stand for a pure relationship while orange flowers communicate something more than friendship but less than love. The most favored choice of flower is the rose… its deep red colour expresses love & devotion… some of the most well known roses are  David Austin roses…these roses includes shades of other colours within the rose. However there are a number of well recognized flowers on this special occasion, I have come up with a top ten list below:

10 The Iris (Meaning: Faith and Hope)
The iris has been a choice flower by many people. There are three classifications of this flower. The Beaded Irises, Arid Irises and the Beardless Iris. Each one has its own unique qualities and beauty.

9 The Sunflower (Meaning: Loyalty)
The magnificent sunflower is one of the fastest growing plants in North America. It is the national flower of Russia. Native Americans used it for food and oil. It is still a favorite flower of Valentine’s Day because of its beauty.

8 The Wildflower (Meaning: Adoration)
There are over 5,000 species of wild flowers. More than 20% of wildflowers belong to the sunflower family. They have an exotic beauty connected with them. Wildflowers have been given on Valentine’s Day as far back as time can reveal.

7 The Lilac (Meaning: Do You Still Love Me?)
Lilacs were first cultivated in the Middle of the last century in Europe, and most of the varieties developed are those still sold today. They are available in white, mauve, violet, or pink.

6 The Carnation (Meaning: Fascination)
Carnations are the UK’s best selling flower. They are an excellent cut flower and have a long lasting quality. They can last up to three weeks after being cut. The pink carnation has been long associated with a woman’s love.

5 The Orchid (Meaning: Love, Beauty, Seduction and Refinement)
Orchids are the largest family of the plant kingdom with over 25,000 naturally occurring species in the world. They are indigenous to tropical or semi-tropical regions of the world such as Asia, South, and Central America.

4 The Lily (Meaning: Beauty)
One of the first descriptions of the lily dates from the Chinese Middle ages. The plant flowers until late autumn and there are three types, red, yellow, or purple. Lilies have been cultivated for over 3000 years. In dGreek poetry, the lily stood for tenderness and referred to as the voice of muses.

3 The Tulip (Meaning: Perfect Love)

In the Victorian language of flowers, red tulips are a declaration of love, making them idea Valentine’s Day gifts. Tulips will continue to grow in water after they are cut, and will curve toward light. Tulips are the third-biggest selling flower in Holland and are very popular in the UK where many are grown.

2 The Daisy (Meaning: Innocence, Loyal, Love, Purity)

The daisy is familiar to most as a “weed” of the lawn. The upturned flower head looks like a single flower, but actually consists of a number of small, tightly, packed individual flowers or “florets.” The daisy was described by Chaucer in his writings as the “day’s eye.”

1 The Rose (Meaning: I Love You)

The rose is a year round favorite. It is probably the best-loved flower in the world. The red rose is the symbol of England and is worn on St George’s Day. It is also the symbol of love and the most popular flower given on Valentine’s Day

With the increasing popularity of Valentine’s Day flowers, you may not be able to get the right flowers unless you place your order in advance. If you have missed placing your order, you can still walk down to the nearest Floist and check out if they have any fresh flowers left.
