Valentine’s Day Blooms
With Valentineâ€™s Day just around the corner, I thought it would be fitting to feature some of our most romantic plants in all shades of pink, red and white. Although not blooming on February 14th, these stunning varieties bring extended romance to your lives in the spring and summer months, both in the garden and cut for endless bouquets.
The Biltmore Estate Dahlia Valentine Mixture lights up the summer garden with a splendid variety of Dahlias in all shades of red and white. Dramatic in the garden, in containers, or cut for summer bouquets! Biltmore Estate also has the same Valentine Mixture for Gladiolus, which are famous cut flowers. The Bleeding Heart Valentine boasts deep red blooms that are sweetly-fragrant. This early-summer bloomer thrives in shade and creates a unique statement in the garden.
Love, Love, Love!
Love in a Mist is a cottage garden favorite, with feathery foliage and pretty blue flowers. Semi-Dinnerplate Dahlia Crazy Love puts on a magnificent show with full, white blooms and purple edging. Our Let Love Grow packet is the perfect handout for weddings, parties or simply to put a smile on someoneâ€™s face! Love Lies Bleeding gets its name from a combination of its color and the surprising downcast spell it weaves. A melancholy tale, the blushing beauty symbolizes passion while the sad, downward-facing blooms tell that a great love is lost.
Create your Own Romantic Statement
Plant Peonies in shades of pink, red, and white for the ultimate romantic, fragrant statement. The unique, spiky plumes of Astilbe create a colorful display in the shade. Try grouping a white, pink and red variety together. Hydrangeaâ€™s huge, full blooms make a grand statement in the shade garden. Try planting the true-blue All Summer Beauty or Pinky Winky for a romantic statement in the summer months.
I hope your Valentineâ€™s Day is full of fun, laughs and love and that your garden brings you the same joy this season. Happy Gardening!
