Valentine's Day for Friendship


Valentine’s Day isn’t just a day for declarations of love, passion or intent. For some sending flowers on this special day can have an altogether different meaning. Valentine’s Day bouquets for friendship are becoming more and more popular and here are a range of choices available for those who wish to send a special message this February 14th.

Yellow rose
The traditional flower of choice for friendship has often been the preserve of the yellow rose. During the eighteenth century it’s believed yellow roses were found growing in the Middle East. They bloomed in colors from pale yellow to the deepest sulphur.
They became particularly popular when introduced in Europe, where these beautiful flowers caused quite a sensation. Sadly the yellow rose was vulnerable to the fungal disease Blackspot and the scent of some of these flowers was powerfully pungent. However, today’s roses have come a long way and the undesirable attributes of this flower have been bred out. They now come in a glorious range of yellows, coppers and buttery creams. They can smell pretty nice too!
The yellow rose symbolizes joy, friendship, delight and the promise of a new beginning. can also mean “remember me” and of course the simple “I care”. Florists say, a yellow rose with red tips stands for friendship and the act of falling in love.

Daring daffodils
Other yellow flowers that can be given on Valentine’s Day include the beautiful daffodil. Part of the national identity of Wales in Britain this glorious flower with its golden trumpet is both exciting, fresh and is said to symbolise chivalry. It is also said to signify regard, unrequited love, the “only one” and perhaps the most appropriate, “the sun is always shining when I'm with you”. Although givers should be aware that presenting someone with a single stem daffodil is said to mean misfortune. In this case it is best to give a glorious bunch or in the words of William Wordsworth “a host of golden daffodils!”
There are of course many other flowers that symbolise friendship away from the traditional yellow rose; the unusual but beautiful blue periwinkle and the wonderful wallflower to name but two.


Fantastic freesias
The seasoned Valentine’s Day giver may look to presenting freesias and their beautiful heady scent to show trust. Poppies can represent pleasure and imagination, and hibiscus is a compliment for delicate beauty. Geraniums are for comfort and the glorious gardenia for joy.
Whatever you choose there is a flower for everyone to express friendship, admiration, trust or even just for the sheer joy of giving. Be sure to let the receiver know why you have chosen this type of flower as not everyone will know the significance of your choice. With so many different ways to show you care away from the traditional choices you are sure to be able to brighten the day or even the smile of someone this Valentine’s Day.
