These flower varieties are some of the most romantic and the most popular flowers you can give her.

Many factors must be considered before making your flower selection. Knowing the symbolism and connotation of each flower and its colors can help you choose the best bouquet for your girl. It also helps to know her likes and dislikes when it comes to flowers.

Back in the Victorian days, flowers were meant as a way to communicate a romantic language, with each flower having its own meaning, especially roses. You can never go wrong with roses, which are the flower symbol for love. Even in platonic situations yellow roses, which mean friendship, are still a great way to show her how much she means to you.

Tulips also signify love, as well as protection, while lilies and lilacs represent beauty. In terms of popularity, carnations are at the top of the list (and easier on the wallet) compared to other varieties of flowers. Sunflowers, though not a traditional choice, can also brighten your girl's day as they express adoration and loyalty.

On the more rare side of the spectrum, orchids stand for love, beauty, and seduction, but come with a sense of seriousness reserved for more developed relationships. Plus, they can cost a pretty penny.

Also, determine what type of arrangement to give her. This goes back to ensuring you know what flowers she likes and dislikes. Will it be a dozen red roses? How about two dozen tulips? Or, will you go for variety and get her an assortment of carnations, daisies, and more. 

Whichever flowers you decide to buy for your girl, make sure it is a surprise. Giving her flowers out of the blue is sure to score you points. For an extra special touch, add one of these love quotes on the card and you'll go from Frankenstein to Frankenfine!

If you're trying to impress a girl, sending flowers for an occasion or just letting her know you care, seek these flowers first before all the rest.
