Flowers to buy if you're in a long-term relationship
Nothing says passion like red roses, also known as the lover's rose. They're sexy and alluring, yet classic and elegant. Red roses make a stunning bouquet and reveal an intense, romantic love.
If, however, you've given her red roses the last few years and you'd like a variation on that theme, there are several ways to go.
You could stay with roses, but try a new color, such as orange. Or you could stick with the color red and choose another flower. Red tulips are a beautiful and sophisticated choice. The tulip's velvety black center is said to resemble a lover's heart, darkened by the heat of passion.
Another option, of course, is to mix roses or tulips with other flowers, which add new layers of meaning to your bouquet. For example, asters are a love flower, though far less famous than the rose.
Pink alstroemeria conveys devotion and pink stargazer lilies represent prosperity. Also, peonies have a high romance quotient and are considered a sign of good luck and a happy marriage.
