Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and with it, the high price of flowers. Many people tend to overspend on flowers, throughout the year as well as on Valentine’s Day. It may seem like it can’t be avoided, but there are ways to make sure you’re getting the best bang for your buck with your floral purchase. Ebates put together this infographic about the best flowers to buy for your significant other on Valentine’s Day. It outlines many different types of flowers and their symbolism, along with their average price and lifespan. Purple irises are the worst offender on this list, with a high price tag and a life of only 3-6 days, while succulents, which will last a couple years with minimal care, are the best purchase option.
