Here are three plants recommended by our horticulturists that are ideal for thoughtful Valentine's Day gifts:
Chain of Hearts, Ceropegia woodii whispers romance with its trailing vines, each leaf shaped like a delicate heart. These enchanting 'chains' can extend up to 3-4m, adorned with heart-shaped leaves displaying hues of green, purple, red, and cream.
It's easy to care for and adds a pop of colour to any room. Place a sheltered outdoor area with filtered light or indoors near a window with indirect sunlight to ensure optimal growth and vibrant appearance.
Move beyond the ordinary and embrace the enduring beauty of the Heart-leafed Philodendron – a symbol of lasting affection. Ideal for indoor spaces and beginners, this resilient plant thrives for years, representing the lasting nature of your connection.
The Heart-leafed Philodendron, Philodendron Cordatum is a versatile plant that can exhibit both climbing and trailing growth habits. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, this Philodendron is known for its air-purifying qualities, helping to remove common indoor pollutants and promoting a healthier living environment. It has become a favourite among ASQ office staff for its low-maintenance charm.
Ditch the bouquet of roses and gift the enduring symbol of love - a rose bush. While a bouquet may be fleeting, Rose bushes can live for decades, symbolizing the enduring nature of love that deepens and grows over time.
Roses are available in a diverse range of forms, including bush, standard, and climbing varieties, providing options to suit your space and preferences. Explore our exquisite rose plants, which are available for purchase online at www.asq.net.au/plants/.
