Flowers are one of the most beautiful and impactful ways to say “I Love You” on Valentine’s Day or any time of the year. One of the most popular flowers given between loved ones is the red rose. While this classic gift is not without its charm and definitely makes a statement, there are other beautiful ways to say “I Love You” with flowers. Consider these rose alternatives this Valentine’s Day.

Go Exotic with Tropical Blooms

Flowers with origins in South America, Hawaii and other tropical climates can be the perfect way to change things up and surprise them on Valentine’s Day. Consider sending one or more of these breathtaking choices:

Pink Azalea and Cyclamen

Pink Azalea and Cyclamen bring bright pink tones and gorgeous petals that are sure to make your lover swoon.

Pink azalea features detailed, clustered flowers and pretty accent greens.

Stargazer Lilies

Stargazer lilies are among the most exotic-looking of lilies and flowers in general. With a pink center radiating out to frosted-white edges, these large, majestic flowers have a euphoric heart-opening effect when you gaze upon them. Consider sending a full bouquet of Stargazers to your loved one, or have them mixed in with other uplifting, heartwarming blooms.

The Exotic Orchid
