Flowers other than roses gifted on Valentines Day

The Valentine’s day is coming and the most common flower that everyone think of is Rose. However, there are other flowers that can be gifted on Valentine's Day. There is a reason why each of these flowers is given on Valentine's Day.

The giver is expected to have associated with each flower a particular meaning and the recipient is supposed to have got that meaning.

These meanings are not accepted by everyone. Yet there seems to be a consensus on this matter, which enables people to communicate using flowers.

The meaning associated with tulip is “love and passion”. This is, in some ways, similar to red rose, which means love, respect, and courage.

Yellow tulip, on the other hand, conveys the sense “hopeless love”.

Hibiscus indicates delicate beauty and heather suggests admiration and beauty.

If rose meant mere love, ivy means a more specific type of love, namely wedded love.

Lotus flower means “separated love” and lily of the valley means “let us make up” or “return of happiness”.
