Can plants be as romantic as a dozen roses? We think so! In fact, there are so many different kinds of romantic plants that it's easy to be creative and find something perfect for the person you love! Not only will you give them a charming surprise, but your romantic plant can continue to grow for years to come, becoming a fond reminder of each other. Take a look at our top picks for romantic plants for Valentine's Day below.
Good things come in small packages! This goes double for succulents, which come in a variety of romantic colours like purples and pinks! Match them up with some turquoise or light greens for a love fest. We're especially fond of succulents in heart containers or with cute accents like heart stones or gems. A fantastic romantic plant, that doesn't take up too much space, and will keep growing all year! Not sure how to care for a succulent? Take a look at our care guide here.
Love is in the Air
Tillansia air plants make perfect little packages for Valentine's Day or any romantic occasion! They are so easy to dress up and add a bit of bling. Miniature terrariums give you a home for your air plant and also an easy way to add colour and accents. Pink and red sand, special stones, coloured pebbles and shells are just some ideas you can use to make your Tillandsia special for someone you love. They're also incredibly easy to care for, just take a look at our easy guide over here.
Give Love a Chance to Bloom
Nothing is more elegant than an orchid, and they're known as a romantic plant throughout the world. Sophisticated and classic, you can find orchids in a multitude of colours and sizes. Purple blooms are our favourite for romantic holidays, but with their long-lasting blooms and dark green foliage, you really can't go wrong with any colour! Orchids are also easier to care for than most people think. Find out the top things your orchid needs to feel pampered in our blog post over here.
My Hoya Heart Beats Only For You
Talk about adorable! Hoya plants are naturally heart-shaped, and when you plant them up in Valentines pots, or add pink accents, the cuteness factor explodes! Use two Hoya in a pot to show 'your two hearts beating as one', or plant up a single Hoya and 'give them your heart' for the occasion. Small enough for a desk plant (and reminder of your affection) or by the bedside table for romantic decor. Water your Hoya plant when the top inch of soil is dry. These succulent plants are drought tolerant, so if you forget now and then, they're very forgiving!
Straight From A Tropical Daydream
Don't rule out tropicals as romantic plants! There are tropical plants that come in bright pink and red blooms, such as Kalanchoe, Anthurium and Bromeliads. As well, lush greenery shows a thriving relationship, and can be potted up in a romantic pot. Adding heart accents, pink and red pebbles or glittering stones create a heartfelt gift that will last for years.
Take a look at our Heartthrob Succulent Planter video for an inspirational idea of how to create your own romantic garden as an unforgettable gift! No matter which plant you choose, as long as it comes from the heart, it's sure to be loved. Happy planting!
