Which flowers and foliage are in season in February?

Alstromeria

Also called the Peruvian Lily, Alstromeria is a beautiful clustered flower symbolising devotion and friendship. Its leaves grow upside down and twist out of the stem making them very unusual and very long-lasting.

Aster

Asters are available in a range of colours and are known and loved for their showy blooms. Many types of Aster are frost and drought resistant which makes them a good low-maintenance flower.

Hydrangea

Hydrangeas are derived from the Greek meaning of ‘water vessel’ which refers to its powerful stem and the shape of its seed capsules. Many people who do not look after Hydrangeas will complain that they do not last as long as other flowers, however, this is because the hydrangea stem often gets covered in sap and leaves the flower unable to take up water. To avoid this the end of their stem should be cut off every two to three days.

Magnolia

Magnolia flowers are known for their gracefulness and elegance and also carry a beautiful floral scent. They originate in ancient China where they were thought to be the perfect symbols of womanly beauty and gentleness. This has lead them to symbolise dignity and nobility in modern times.

Marigold

Marigold flowers are available in a variety of colours, the main being yellow and orange and despite their strong pungent odour are extremely popular in cosmetic treatments. They are also popular as decoration in Hindu Weddings because they are known as ‘herbs of the sun’ and therefore represent creativity, passion, brightness and happiness on the newlywed couple.

Muscari

Also known as grape hyacinths, Muscari has spikes of urn-shaped flowers in a bright blue colour and thin dense leaves which look very similar in appearance to a bunch of grapes.

Ranunculus

These stunning flowers are often referred to as the rose of spring which makes them a wonderful alternative for Valentines Day or February weddings if you are on a budget and cannot afford roses. 

Roses

What would February be without roses? These beautiful and instantly recognisable flowers are the international symbol of love and romance and are by far the most popular Valentine’s Day Flowers, especially red Naomi Roses.

Sunflowers

Sunflowers are another extremely recognisable flower and are often associated with children because of their love for growing them in competition with one another. The meaning of sunflowers stems from the sun itself and represents joy, adoration and longevity which often means they are thought of as happy flowers.

Tulips

There are over 3000 different varieties of tulips, which many people don’t realise are a part of the lily family. These flowers are extremely popular in February for Valentines Day, as they symbolise love, particularly the red ones.

Queen Anne’s Lace

Also called carota, Queen Anne’s Lace has two different varieties which are actually a part of the carrot family. The flowers on this flower are five parted and small, usually in white, yellow or pink colours.

Zinnia

Zinnia flowers are members of the Asteraceae family and are available in 20 species, which range in colour and size. They are most easily recognised by their leaves which are like sandpaper in texture and are lace shaped.
