Chocolate and long-stemmed roses are surely a welcome and classic Valentine’s offering, but live plants are a reminder of your Love well beyond February 14th. Living Valentine blooms can adorn that special someone’s home or work space for weeks and can sometimes be transplanted into the garden for years of enjoyment outside.
There are live Valentine plants to suit any style:
- For the lover of classic or country décor, miniature roses and African violets work well.
- If your partner prefers a modern look, try calla lilies or tulips for their sleek forms.
- For those beloveds who go for bold or artistic looks, cyclamen or anthurium would be pleasing with their unique leaves and flowers.
When it’s time for your gift plants to move outside, assure they’ll thrive by placing them in a location that best meets their light requirements.
- Anthurium and calla lilies do well with partial shade and no hot midday sun.
- Miniature roses thrive in full sun and grow wonderfully in the garden or in containers on patios and decks.
- For containers in shady locations, cyclamen would do well.
Be sure to check your plant tags and the Plant Library for full details on the planting and care of your blooming Valentine’s plants. You can find all of your favorite blooming Valentines at your local garden center!
