African Violets are a popular blooming plant, probably because of their lovely little purple and pink flowers as well as their fuzzy heart-shaped leaves. Some varieties of African violet have light green foliage, and others offer a view of red-violet leaves and stems. You’ll find many African violet plants with serrated leaves and some with smooth ones. All of these flowers are easy to care for and they can last for a long time with adequate sunlight.
Lying on low and woody shrubs, Azalea flowers offer a beautiful display of red, orange, coral, white, pink, or purple blooms. Azaleas make amazing plants to keep in a home garden or even inside of a house. They prefer moist soil, so your giftee will want to keep them watered but not wet, and they’ll need to be placed in bright, indirect sunlight.
Chrysanthemums are a traditional flower that blooms in shades of yellow, red, white, pink, magenta, and purple. Once in a while, you’ll find chrysanthemums in bold bronze hues. Chrysanthemums are potted flowering plants that love bright, indirect sunlight. They don’t like to be overwatered though, so you might want to remind your giftee to water them only every two days or so.
In addition to these potted flowers, you may want to consider giving geranium, heather, hydrangea, lilies, or orchids to your special Valentine.
