Love Blooms in a Garden

Often, flower arrangements and chocolates are the first things that come to mind when people think of romance. Of course, these are all great indulgences. However, most people don’t realise that trees have long been associated with romance. 

Have you ever heard the saying, “Love is like a tree that grows with beauty and grace, steadfastly symbolising growth, strength, and longevity”? Perhaps we coined this phrase, but like love, these words are like a gentle whisper that soothes and renews. 

Trees represent growth and stability, which are essential components of any healthy relationship. When two people are in love, they can be like the branches of a tree, growing together and reaching for each other as their love blossoms and deepens over time. 

Plant a little romance in your home landscape with the endless variety of trees that capture an aura of love and passion through their colour, shape, or fragrance. Here are some of the most romantic trees to inspire you! 

  1. Tree Wisteria 

This graceful tree lives up to its botanical name, Bolusanthus speciosus, as it means beautiful or showy in Latin. In spring and early summer, it’s covered with fragrant, blue-violet flowers that hang in bunches. Although it’s deciduous, it only loses its foliage for a short time. Drought-hardy, frost resistant and a non-invasive root system make this a beautiful pavement tree that also does well in narrow and confined spaces. 

  1. Silver Oak 

The special meaning of oak trees is just one of the reasons why they’re so beloved. Oak trees are a symbol of courage and power, and some even call it the most powerful tree. They’re popular because of their strength and resilience, as well as their unique growth pattern, expansive canopy, and gorgeous leaves. Oak trees can last for hundreds of years. Because of their longevity and size, some other special meanings include wisdom and honour, as well as strength of character. They can also symbolise health, luck, resistance, morale, and survival. Oaks are also believed to be a healing tree, for the heart and soul, as well as the body in general.  

  1. Silver Birch 

Because of their year-round beauty, birch trees symbolise hope and new beginnings. Even after its soft green leaves fall off, the spare shape and slender trunk, with its peeling, shiny white bark, is still a lovely sight. 

They are one of the first trees to grow back leaves, so they are connected to the start of spring. In Chinese culture, these trees symbolise protection and rejuvenation. Other special meanings of these trees include protection, purification, and love. 

  1. Pride of India 

With its abundant variety of luscious colours like pink, white, red, or purple, the Pride of India is a popular choice for an enduring romantic scene. This ancient sprig-like tree features delicate petals resembling crepe paper and often symbolises good fortune and love.  

Now that we’ve shown you our favourite romantic trees and the meaning behind them, why not let some love bloom in your garden by planting one of these beautiful trees?  

There’s nothing more romantic as a living memorial of your love that will continue to grow bigger and stronger, like the beautiful bond you share with your loved ones!
