Alternatives to Roses this Valentine's Day

We love any chance to celebrate, and what better thing to celebrate than love itself? You can always go the traditional route, of course, with a box of chocolates and a dozen imported roses that only last a day or two, but doesn't your loved one deserve something a little cooler, a little more hip, and a whole lot more fun?

Check out this list of alternative & seasonal flower options from the sustainable florist team at Coy & Co (across the street from the hotel!) that say so much and look so pretty. Before you go pre-ordering your Valentine's bouquet, make sure you...



One of Portland's famous springtime flowers are coming out early... Greenhouse tulips are in their prime for Valentine's Day!

Tulips continue to grow after they've been cut, so both their blooms and stems will open, grow, and change shape as the week passes for a constant interest-piece whose story changes daily.

Before you write off tulips, look up their heirloom parrot & peony varieties to see the wide range of what these story-tellers have to offer.

Lilies are the perfect long-lasting, incredible smelling Valentine's Day flower with their big juicy blooms and impressive long-distance scent throw.

Heads up to the cat-lovers out there: Lilies are deadly to cats, so we suggest another flower type for the feline-friendly in your life.

Cut-orchids, when properly cared for, can last up to three weeks in a vase!

Their unique blossoms and high-value make these a perfect luxurious alternative to out-of-season imported roses.
