Tulips are the new roses, you guys. Yeah, we said it: Roses are bunk. (Well, now we said it.)
Why are we saying this? Well, mainly because roses have become a staple for the American male consumer on Valentine’s Day, and as a result, the cartel that is flower stores have cranked up the price of roses.
Yet the beautiful, bulbed tulips remain at a reasonable price and with the added benefit of not being a worn out cliche.
Actually, let us take that back: if you’re going to the prom, there’s nothing cliched about roses. You high schooler.
So join us in the revolution and make tulips — the just-as-beautiful, yet substantially-better-priced Valentine’s option — the new roses.
