What are love plants?

Love plants are shrubs, flowers and trees that bring love, passion and admiration into the home. They bring happiness to those around them and boast mood-elevating and uplifting properties.

What plant represents love?

Traditionally, roses are a plant of passion. They are said to have the highest vibration of all living things. They attract healing, luck, and of course love. They also offer protection. This is one of the reasons many gift roses to their loved ones on Valentine’s Day. Serenata Flowers offer an array of rose bouquets and arrangements, all of which make the perfect gift for a loved one.

The color of the rose has a meaning too. White roses are symbolic of purity, positive energy and healing. Peach roses embrace friendship, peace, and spirituality.

White roses with red details boast passion and devotion, while pink roses are symbolic of love, romance, fun, and sweetness. Fuchsia roses have a lust for life, lavender is a signal of spirituality, and red for passion and deep, true love.

When buying roses as a gift for another, it’s a good idea to consider the color. This will ensure you’re sending the right message. For example, if you’re in a new relationship, red roses may be considered too much. Pink roses, on the other hand, will likely be seen as a flirty and fun gesture.
