Valentine’s Day is already in the air — and to express your feelings for someone, you can go with the traditional choice and order a bouquet of red roses. But, of course, you can always do a bit of research and opt for a flower that will truly convey your sentiments.
Sending blooms of a certain kind may say more than you think. A bouquet of red roses reflects passion and romance while carnations are associated with new relationships. As it turns out, these meanings date back to Victorian times wherein people were big on using symbols instead of words when conveying their feelings.
Through the years, these meanings have continuously evolved, but the feelings attached to them remain strongly intact.
