Are Tulips OK For Valentines Day?

Do customers sometimes ask you if it is okay to give Tulips on Valentine’s Day, instead of Roses? We can assure you that this is a perfect flower to give! In this blog post, we’ll explain why Tulips for Valentine’s Day are one of the best flowers to show your love.

Tulips: The Second Most Popular Flowers for V-Day

Of course, the romantic Rose will always be Valentine’s Day flower no. 1 on the list, but the Tulip is the runner-up! From our Holland headquarters loads and loads of Tulips are shipped to countries all over the world for this special holiday. Reds, pinks, and whites are most popular, but the past year’s other pastel-colored varieties are very popular as well!

The heart of Your Lover

Did you know that the velvety inner center of a Tulip represents the heart of your lover? Depending on the variety, the color can differ. But think of the popular Double Tulip Scarlet Verona, with its deep dark red colored heart. It screams out passion!

A Lot of Romantic Symbolism!

Besides the center, the color of the Tulips of choice also represent various symbolic meanings:

  • Red Tulips symbolize “The One”: when these are given, the giver implies that the receiver is “the one” for him or her.
  • When your customers want to send a more delicate message, they can opt for pink Tulips (they want to show affection) or yellows (you make me happy).
  • The cream-colored Tulip is for couples because they say “I love you forever,” or advise orange Tulips to spice it up since they stand for desire and passion.
  • Is a more elegant message required? Opt for white Tulips, which symbolize purity, or purple-colored Tulips to let your customer say “You are my queen/king.”
