The Top 4 Winter Flowers To Send To Your Sweetheart

01 November 2017

For as long as we can remember, sending flowers has always been a gesture of love, thoughtfulness, and appreciation. When you send a beautiful bouquet of flowers, it can brighten someone’s day and make them feel special. With winter quickly approaching, you may be wondering what types of flowers can withstand the windy and cold weather outside. Since some flowers bloom better than others in the winter, it’s important to remember what seasonal flowers are worth sending during those cold and frigid winter months. In this blog, we’ll look at the top four winter flowers to send to your sweetheart.

At Venus Et Fleur, nobody loves roses more than we do. That’s why we’ve created real live roses that can last up to a full year (or longer!) when properly cared for. Our Eternity Roses™ are cut at the peak of perfection and treated with a special pigmentation process that transforms them into amazing works of art.

Lily Flowers

Lily flowers can be a graceful addition to your home garden or the perfect flower to give to a loved one this winter. All lily flowers have three petals that are surrounded by three sepals, and they come in a variety of colors including orange, yellow, white, purple, and pink. While the basic parts of the flower remain consistent across all lily varieties, the shape of the flower may vary from one species to the next. The most common lily flower shapes include a trumpet, star, bowl, and funnel. It’s important to note that if your loved one has a cat, you may want to send them a different type of flower. Lilies are not safe for cats, as they can produce a chemical that can be fatal to felines who drink water from a lily vase, lick pollen, or bite into the petals.

Gerbera Flowers

Another popular flower you should consider sending your loved one this winter is a gerbera. With more than 30 different varieties of this flower across the U.S., the gerbera is a type of daisy that features an array of bright and bold colors including red, orange, yellow, cream, purple, and pink. These beautiful blooms are the perfect gift for an occasion, and it’s easy to find these flowers at your local floral shop or farmer’s market. They are also distinguished by large flowering heads that closely resemble those of sunflowers.

Roses

The ultimate flower of love and romance, the rose is a beautiful and surprisingly sturdy flower that you can send to your loved one this winter. While rose bushes outside need some special tending to over the cold winter months, this popular flower thrives very well indoors as well as in chilly weather conditions. Our Ombré Rose Collection is a great place to start when you want to send your loved one a special gift this holiday season. We offer an array of colors to choose from in our ombré rose bouquets, and all of our roses come perfectly housed in Parisian style keepsake boxes that will last for years to come.

Carnations

Carnations are another wonderful winter flower to choose for that special someone. Commonly known as “pinks,” carnations have a long-lasting bloom that can spread a rich and spicy scent. When accompanied by a sturdy stem, these flowers can grow up to 24 inches long. Another perk of these flowers is that they can be replanted yearly, and with the correct winterization techniques, they can be kept as perennials.

If you want to send your significant other, friend, or family member a special floral arrangement this winter, be sure to browse Venus Et Fleur’s unique rose bouquets online today. All of our roses can stay fresh and soft for up to a full year with the proper care and maintenance. We start our process by bringing in fresh roses from Ecuador at the peak of their freshness. We then carefully dehydrate each rose and treat them with natural oils and a non-toxic, non-allergenic wax formula that is similar to silica. We then submerge our roses in a color tank to soak up unique dues and colors which range from deep red to metallic-dipped roses.
