If you have just had an argument or misunderstanding that needs to be smoothed over, then roses, lilies and tulips are the most common sorry flowers to send. 

Red and pink are the best colours if you’re sending apology roses your wife or girlfriend. But if you’re looking to send flowers to say sorry to a friend or someone in the family, elegant oriental lilies in pink or white will surely melt their heart! 

Carnations, chrysanthemums and orchids are other popular flowers that mean I’m sorry. These blooms are great to mend any relationship as they send the message of sincerity.

Which are the Best ‘I’m Sorry’ Flowers for Her? 

If she’s hurt or upset, surprising her with a bouquet of flowers is a gesture that shows you really care about your relationship. You can send sorry flowers to her work or home - your decision should depend on her personality. For instance, if she likes to keep her personal matters private, a bouquet of apology flowers showing up at her workplace would only make her uncomfortable! 

Roses, lilies and tulips are the best flowers to say sorry to your girlfriend or wife. Each of these blooms holds a special meaning:

Roses represent unconditional love, romance, care and affection

Roses are a classic way to extend a romantic apology to your sweetheart. Red roses should be the first choice for your lady love. But if you’re not ready to declare your love for her, soft pink or yellow roses will tell her that you genuinely care and want to reconcile. No matter the colour of your roses, a simple card with a sincere sorry message will surely make her feel the love.

Lilies reflect sincerity, humility and devotion

There are few flowers as beautiful as a lily. These blooms are the ideal apology flowers for your girlfriend or wife. When sending lilies to say sorry to her, opt for soothing and elegant colours like pink, white and yellow. Lilies in a bouquet are a popular choice.

The best thing about tulips is that they’re not just great sorry flowers for your wife or girlfriend, but also for mum or sister!

Choosing ‘I’m sorry’ Flowers for Him

If you’ve hurt your man, take a modern approach and send him more than a text message to apologise - try sending him flowers! Women aren’t the only ones who appreciate a sincere apology message.
