Flowers can be a great gift for many occasions, including birthdays, holidays and especially for romantic reasons. It’s no wonder why Valentine’s Day has long been the most popular flower-gifting time of the year, since people normally associate the gesture with love and affection. No matter if you’re going on a first date or are celebrating your 50th anniversary, flowers can convey your interest, care and adoration. But what flowers are best to show your romantic interest? Let’s run down the most romantic flowers that are sure to leave your true love breathless.

Rose: There’s no way we could comfortably begin a list of the most romantic flowers with anything other than the rose; It just wouldn’t be right otherwise. Red roses, to be more specific, have long been recognized as the most popular choice for displaying your love and affection in flowers. And for ages, red roses have been recognized as a pure symbol of everlasting love. But really, roses of any color, from pink to orange to white, can be a great romantic gift to give your partner.

Tulip: A truly versatile flower with many colors to choose from, the tulip is typically associated with the start of the spring season, and has a few special meaning itself. Red tulips, in fact, represent love, making it a great choice for a romantic flower bouquet. But, we think that these popular blooms would work no matter the color, so feel free to choose from tulips that come in yellows, pinks, purples or whites.
