Chocolates and love letters are some things that we associate with this upcoming holiday. But there’s only one thing that really screams Valentine’s Day: flowers. 

The Lance has taken time to fill out a form to share their own love on their own favorite flowers. because we know all about the flowers that make our hearts melt. Down below are flowers ranging from the iconic rose to the unpopular “Baby’s Breath.”

  • Rose: 48% Lance staffer: “I think that roses are a classic flower on Valentine’s Day. They come in many different colors and are very pretty to look at, especially when they come in a nice bouquet or box.” My take: I agree with this L take. A fresh bouquet of roses is all I need to make my heart melt, especially when they are unique white or pink roses. Roses are the flower you think of when you hear Valentines Day, which is why I agree with this take.

  • Baby’s Breath: 8% Lance staffer: “I love how pretty they are and they last a long time.” My take: Baby’s breath is a great extra in a bouquet of flowers. Although they are kinda boring… they will for sure add an extra oomph to your bouquet.

  • Peony: 16% Lance staffer: “Peonies are a flower that I see all the time, especially at weddings.Those are along with white roses, but regardless, when it comes to Valentine’s day, Peonies fit in very well with their colors, and the intricacies of their petals make them very nice to look at.” My take: Peonies are so underrated! They are definitely more detailed than roses, and a rarer flower to receive (they originated from Asia, Europe, and Western North America). The petals on the flower are so delicate and nice to look at.

  • Tulip: 12% Lance staffer: “I think tulips are the best because of their unique colors.” My take: The pastel colors visible on all tulips will make your significant other DIE. Maybe even go out and pick your own to really show your dedication.

  • Lily: 4% Lance staffer: “They are a fun shape, and have a really pretty name.” My take: Lilies definitely aren’t that popular, mostly because they scream Easter or funeral. Although, they are unique and in that way, a fun flower to receive. So go get some, ASAP.

  • Orchid: 4% Lance staffer: “I’ve always found orchid’s extremely pretty, plus they’re one of my favorite flowers.” My take: Even the name “orchid” is captivating. These uniquely shaped flowers will capture the attention of your lover in a second.

  • Dahlia: 4% Lance staffer: “It looks nice whenever I put them in my room, they smell nice, and they make good gifts to give to friends.” My take: Just WOW. The details on most dahlia flowers are to die for. Seriously. This gorgeous light pink and many different petals add for a good pop of color in a bouquet.

  • Sunflower: 4% Lance staffer: “Every birthday that I have, my family members give me sunflowers, it’s a tradition. So to receive them on Valentine’s day means something to me.” My take: A little basic, yet a bright flower like this will make your significant other smile with joy. While yellow isn’t the classic Valentines Day color, it will guarantee a smile from your significant other.
