#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.
