For centuries, men have given women flowers as a gesture of their love and appreciation.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re in the beginning stages of your courtship, or have been married for decades, nothing makes a person’s day like a completely unsolicited gesture to plant the seeds of love, and that’s flowers.

But we’re not talking about carnations and baby’s breath here. While they are easy on the wallet, this floral combo is reserved for prom dates and your great aunt Hilda.

Finding the right partner isn’t always easy, nor is finding the perfect flowers that will delight her.

Here are five popular varieties of flowers that women really want you to surprise them with.

1- Sunflowers

When it comes to flowers, no variety can lift someone’s spirits quite like sunflowers.

Since they are so bright and cheerful, they serve as an instant mood changer for both the giver and recipient.

2- Garden-Fresh

Lush garden-style bouquets with a variety of texture and an abundance of colour continue to be a hit in the floral realm. Think flowers such as peonies, hydrangeas, garden roses, berries and mixed greens for this type of arrangement.

3 – Modern Mix

Modern and lively bouquets use a combination of pastels and bright colours. Mixing in geometric shapes makes these arrangements young and fresh. Dahlias, delphinium, agapanthus and gerberas are popular in this style.

4- Party Theme

Another trend that is bloom lends itself to a party theme.

For this type of bouquet, the colour palette often uses bright blues, deep oranges, vibrant yellows and of course, red and purple. It is intense in colour and rich in feeling.

Alstromeria, sunflowers, solidago, celosia and delphinium are all great selections.

5- Roses

And of course you can never go wrong with a rose or 12! Roses have come to symbolize love and romance since the beginning of time.
