Valentine’s Day: Beyond Red Roses

posted Jun 27, 2009, 7:28 AM by Orchids@ Orchidsforyou.net

Jessica Sidman of Washingtonian has an article about Valentine flowers, which do not have to be rose (again).

"Guys, show your Valentine you’re not an average Joe by giving her something other than the average rose. From lilies to lisianthus, hydrangeas to heliconias, here are Valentine’s Day recommendations from local florists." She said.

You can find her recommendations here, and by the way, Orchids For You is once again mentioned:
"For a flower that will last long after Valentine’s Day, orchids are a good bet. Orchids for You specializes in the exotic plants. Owner Tom Pho says the most popular variety is the phalaenopsis orchid ($15 to $45), which comes in lavender, pink, and red and has six to eight blooms per stem. Each bloom lasts two to three months. Pho also recommends the fragrant cattleya orchids ($42.50 to $60), which have four-to-six-inch blossoms in a variety of colors and last two to four weeks. A miniature version is also available (starting at $15). For a fire-engine-red orchid that will bloom for four to six weeks, try oncidium orchids ($20 to $40), better known as Dancing Ladies or Dancing Dolls."

When you come by to get orchids for your valentine,  do not forget to take a look at some of the orchids being mentioned in the article.
