The Meaning Behind Flower Colours for Valentine’s Day

Most of us will gravitate towards a romantic flower arrangement that features dramatic reds and pinks. But it’s time to put aside the traditional colour palette of love! For those planning to send a bouquet to a special someone this Valentine's Day, consider the meaning behind the colours you choose. Here is our complete guide to the symbolism of flower colours.


If you want to send a bold message of deep affection, then red is your colour. Make a statement this Valentine’s Day with a red bouquet that symbolises passion and love. Think of large bouquets bursting with red roses.


Pink flowers send an unmistakable message of devotion and commitment to your partner. Bouquets featuring pink florals are graceful and symbolise a more gentle expression of love. For the ultimate gift filled with support and encouragement, consider our light pink and hot pink arrangements.
