Why Carnations, Geraniums and Lavender Flowers Can Kill Your Valentine's Day Mood


Roses are red. Violets are blue. But these Valentine’s Day flowers will kill the mood...at least according to Victorian-era floral standards.

It turns out the flowers you gift have specific meanings -- so here are a few you should avoid. For example, yellow and or red carnations connotate feelings of disdain and heartbreak.   

Geraniums will put you in the friend zone, and scarlet-colored ones signify stupidity. Lavender may smell delicious, but it’s only meant for people you don’t trust.

And peonies, although pretty, signify rage.Thankfully there are lots of other flowers to choose to make your Valentine’s Day beautiful.
