Top 10 Romantic Flowers and their Meaning

Dating Tips for Men, Gift Ideas

Some of us ladies are still thrilled when the florist van arrives at our door but before sending flowers find out what message you are sending.

Rather than just nipping in to the local petrol station or buying forced flowers from the supermarket, put a little effort in to selecting and sending flowers. However beware of what you are sending, red roses say I love you but yellow roses say we are just friends or denote jealousy. I have included which colour of flowers is the most appropriate for romance.

Most women are unaware of the meaning behind flowers so whether you send flowers yourself or through a florist make sure the card holds the information to the meaning of the flowers being sent.

Any good florist will know the meaning of the flowers, so if buying through a florist tell them the message you want to send and they will advise you on which flowers are appropriate.

10. Iris - Blue is faith and hope, purple means compliments or wisdom, white is purity and yellow is passion.

9. Acacia -Unspoken love, send these if you want to let someone know of your secret admiration.

8. Primrose – I can’t live without you (evening primose means happy in love).

7. Lilac - youthful or humility, also confidence.

6. Carnation -Fascination. Pink is maternal love, striped carnations mean refusal and say you cannot be with someone, yellow is rejection or disappointment but red means my heart aches for you or I am fascinated with you.

5. Orchid - Rare beauty, refinement, beautiful woman, long life, femininity or mature charm.

4. Lily – White is purity or virginity, yellow means walking on air but also falsehood and orange means I burn for you.

3. Tulip - Red is a declaration of love, multi coloured means you have beautiful eyes and yellow is hopelessly in love.

2. Daisy – Innocence or a loyal love.

1. Rose – Red roses say I love you but if you place red and white roses together it symbolises perfect unity. A thornless rose means I loved you at first sight. Each colour of rose has a different meaning but for love red is the only colour to send.

If a man were to send me flowers I would hope for orchids!!

    For me; Orchids are #1. They have an almost timeless beauty without the cliche of roses.

    Another favourite of mine are sun flowers but then I guess it’s each to their own.

    Thnaks for the good article. Rose is so comersial, i did not like it. I prefer to gift other flowers to my girl friend. She like a natural flowers from the field :)

    I like that what Orange in Lily means: I burn for you. And I am ecstatic about the meaning of Primrose: I can’t live without you. And the Tulip also: Multi-colored means you have beautiful eyes and Yellow is hopelessly in love.

    Its so charming wonderful…

    And we could also make our own interpretations of different flowers and plants, and everything under the sun that we want to give to our love ones. Like we could interpret a Rose as a lips waiting for the wind or like abandoned or solitary love, it depends on the metaphor of the giver. I know that with utmost sincerity, girls will understand and appreciate it.

    Thanks, For the flower meanings I have my own flower site so the information is very useful.

    Personally I prefer to give my girl Roses as nothing says I love you better than a dozen long stem red roses and maybe some nice chocolates.

    Wonderful information! Lilies are my favorite flower – especially stargazer lilies. I do have a special place for orange/red roses though.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Rosebud

    It never ceases to amaze me that even when I give a free link in your comment and a link to your latest blog post (if you have a blog) people still insist on adding their links into their comments.

    It takes me ages to go through the comments like yours and delete the links … including the natural links you would have received if you hadn’t tried spamming my blog.

    It is also a good idea when going out to order flowers that you know your partner’s favourites. Doing a little research could reap great rewards and save disappointment.

    emma thats so true. Orchids have a class that Roses will never be able to match. Simply timeless.

    A lovely article. My wife’s favourite flowers are tulips and iris – and I remember this by thinking ‘eyes = iris’ and ‘two lips = tulips’.
