Keep Your Love Alive: Valentine Plants

Posted by The Sill on

When it comes to Valentine's Day, plants definitely get the short-end of the stick, with sweethearts opting for pricey cut flowers instead. Unfortunately, cut flowers usually die in a matter of days - leaving your love with a vase of withered blooms and mushy stems. So we urge you -- ditch the flowers -- and embrace the lush, long-lasting greenery. Give the gift that grows.

There is a vast selection of amazing plants out there, but we narrowed it down to the list below based on aspects like easy-care, heart-shaped leaves, petite proportions, and unique hues & textures.
