If someone tells you flowers are overrated, then they just aren’t receiving bouquets often enough. Flowers are great gifts for any occasion, or even if there is none at all. In fact, you can never go wrong with flowers—you only have to choose the right ones.
Romantic flowers that are favorites with women
Before you get all nerve-wracked choosing from the wide variety and colorful array at your nearby florist, just read up on this list of romantic flowers to give that oh-so-special girl in your life.
#1 Angelica. Soft and subtle, the angelica is easy on the eyes, making it aptly the symbol of stress relief. You can give this to her if she’s feeling down, or to remind her to relax as you give her a vase of angelicas with relaxing and aromatic lavender for her office desk.
#2 Azalea. A symbol of care and love, the azalea plays on dark and light hues that make it look bountiful yet complex. This is a beautiful showcase of utter femininity, and if you want to propose, you can’t go wrong with azaleas.
#3 Blue salvia. Associated with healing and thoughtfulness, you can give this to your girl when she’s feeling under the weather. You can mix it with other flowers such as hydrangeas and azaleas to send her your wishes for recovery.
#4 Carnation. A fascinating flower in itself with its textured petals that give each flower a look of depth, the white carnation is the perfect symbol of fascination indeed. Whether you are getting her white or red, make sure to get an abundant bunch of those that are in full bloom to delight and captivate her.
#5 Cherry blossom. Cherry blossoms have always been a favorite among girls and women alike. Their small, soft petals symbolize delicate femininity, and their sweetly aromatic smell can definitely make your woman smile.
#6 Clematis. If you really want to surprise your lady love, plant some clematis in her garden. This beautiful flower grows with climbing vines that look colorful, romantic, and lush over time. You can also add this to a bouquet with other flowers for a beautiful splash of springtime color on your lady’s bedside, office desk, or table centerpiece.
#7 Daisy. The bright white and yellow of the daisy is perhaps what makes this dainty flower a perfect symbol of liveliness, innocence, and happiness. They look cute as is or as a bright accent to a bouquet of lush blooms. Giving this to your wife after childbirth can brighten up her mood and lift her spirits after an exhaustive time in the delivery room.

#12 Jasmine.

#13 Lily. A showcase of nature’s vibrant colors, lilies are beautiful for any occasion. Whether you want to say sorry, celebrate an anniversary, or just cheer her up, lilies are elegant enough and can go well with many other flowers, especially those subtler, smaller ones such as angelicas and jasmines. It is a symbol of friendship and devotion, and is an unassuming flower to give a woman on your first date. [Read: 14 charming ways to impress a girl on a date]

Nevertheless, roses will never fail to make the recipient feel special and loved.

You can give your girlfriend, friend, mother, daughter, grandmother, or just about any girl you know this flower and they will be beaming in return. This is perfect as a single flower or in a few bunch tied in a ribbon, or you can have it arranged in a vase along with other complementary flowers.
#17 Tulip. Another famous go-to flower is the tulip, an enduring symbol of love and spring time. Whether you fill a bouquet with the same hues or a multi-colored combination, tulips are beautiful enough to be given on special occasions to make your girl feel special and remembered, but are also perfect for everyday bouquets.
