While the Valentine’s Day rose is the most common flower to send out this February there are lots of other flower alternatives that are just as beautiful. The sending of flowers on Valentine’s Day dates back hundreds and hundreds of years all the way back to Saint Valentine and when couple would give themselves flowers after performing secret weddings. You see, back in the day there was a lot of persecution, but love conquered all and the flowers became of symbol of that love and the freedom it entailed. Here is an excellent list of different Valentine’s Day flowers to send to beat the rose by a long shot.
