The Best Flowers for Valentine's Day

Red Roses

What list of best Valentine's Day flowers would be complete without the iconic red rose?

Roses are the world's most popular cut flower, with hundreds of millions sold each year. And on February 14th, some 70% of roses sold by florists are red roses.

This is because roses are the classic, iconic symbol of love, romance and passion. If you want to express your love to your romantic partner, red roses are the best way to do it.

At Floraly, we are proud to source the absolute best red roses Australia has to offer, with lovely long stems and petals in the most vivid red hues.

vase of pink roses for valentine's day

Pink Roses

Break from tradition and give your lover a bunch of beautiful pink roses. Unlike red roses, pink roses symbolise all different kinds of love, like the love between best friends or a mother and daughter, as well as romantic love.

For this reason, not only can pink roses be gifted to your romantic partner, they also make a lovely Galentine's gift for your friends. They also make a sweet gesture for Mum, for your sister or for any other important woman in your life whom you want to express your love to.

Red Lilies

Searching for romantic flowers that aren't roses? Lilies may be the answer you're looking for.

Superbly fragrant and one of the most impressive flowers to see bloom, red lilies make a wonderful alternative to red roses on Valentine's Day. Like red roses, red lilies are symbols of love and passion.

One thing to note is that lilies are toxic to cats, so be cautious of sending these to your wife or girlfriend if she has one.

dark pink carnations for valentine's day


Delicate, ruffled carnations are one of the most popular alternatives to roses at any time of year. This is largely because carnations symbolise devotion, love, fascination and distinction. This makes them ideal for sending to that person whom you hold most dear.

While pink or red carnations are by far the most popular colour to send, one carnation colour to avoid is yellow. In the language of flowers, yellow carnations are symbols of rejection and disappointment—definitely not the message you want to be sending on Valentine's Day.

Want to show your eternal love to your wife or girlfriend? Dahlias are the perfect flowers for the job.

In the Victorian Era, when floriography became popular and flowers were given to convey secret messages, the dahlia flower was known as a symbol of eternal love and commitment. 

For this reason, we think dahlias are one of the most romantic Valentine's Day flowers you can give someone.

purple orchid plant for valentine's day


While cut flowers are certainly beautiful, it's sadly true that most don't last much longer than a week in a vase. If you're looking for longer-lasting Valentine's Day flowers, why not gift your sweetheart an orchid plant?

Orchids have a bit of a reputation for being a little finicky. It may be true that they need a little extra care and devotion to keep blossoming—but the same can be said for a relationship! 

When properly cared for, an orchid will blossom again and again, year after year, and serve as an ongoing reminder of your love and commitment.

valentine's day tulips

What about tulips?

Tulips, along with peonies and buttercups, are popular Valentine's Day flowers in some parts of the world. In Australia, though, Valentine's Day falls right at the height of summer in February.

Sadly, these romantic flowers are out of season in Australia at this time of year.
