Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

We love roses so much that we are one of the largest retailers of rose bushes in St. Louis. However, the long-stemmed roses typically purchased for Valentine’s Day are pricey and sometimes very short lived. So, unless you are buying someone a rose bush (we will get to that later), roses won’t be our top choice for Valentine’s Day. In case you are curious about other options, we have gathered a few rose-alternatives to gift your significant other this year.

Succulents –

Alternatives to roses for valentines day St. Louis

Succulents are on-trend right now for their ability to add an effortless splash of green in any bright corner of the home. They range from tiny and cute to tall and spiky and can be great for people on the go as they store water, therefore don’t require a lot of maintenance. You can place them on a shelf, in a bathroom or really any well-lit spot in your home that could use a little life. We carry succulents in all varieties, including pre-made planters with multiple succulents. You cannot go wrong with gifting succulents instead of flowers.

Cyclamen –

St. Louis Missouri Valentine's Day

Cyclamen are a cool weather-blooming house plant with bright blooms in shades of pink, deep red, lavender, two-tone, and white. Not only can Cyclamen brighten up your home from November to March, they will re-bloom after their dormant period. We love Cyclamen for their bright, beautiful, long lasting blooms and we know your loved one will adore one in place of the typical boxed roses this year.
