The Meaning Behind the Plant

Corinna and Megan are gearing up for Valentine's Day.  Corinna is making bows as Megan shows off a few of our foiled and  bowed Tulip and Kalanchoe plants

Some people like to pick out a plant for their sweetheart based solely on what looks good at the time or perhaps based on a favorite color.  Some people however like to pick their plant based on a common meaning behind the plant.  If you are one of the latter, we are here to help!  If not, it's still fun to learn something new!  Let us go over just a few common meanings behind certain plants you may be giving for Valentine's Day...and yes we do have all of these!

Well, that should give you a few ideas of the common meanings behind many plants that we have. Also, don't forget that we put your choice of colored foil and a bow on your plant free of charge.  We hope this helps on the quest to find a meaningful gift this Valentine's Day!
