Six heart-shaped plants for your lucky Valentine

Forget red roses – this year, get your special someone a gift that’ll keep giving beyond Feb 14.

If you really want to make a point about commitment this Valentines Day, we have the perfect gift idea for you – ditch the cut flowers this year and get your special person a living, breathing, romantically-leafed plant that you can both cherish for months (and hopefully years!) to come.

There’s a lovely heart-shaped leaf plant variety for everyone, from cute and compact to full-blown statements – check out a few of our favourites below.

Chain of Hearts

These subtle silver lockets will look incredible all year ‘round, with their delicate trails growing up to 3-4m. Pop in a basket or pot and place up high on a shelf or stair for maximum visual impact.

Sweetheart Hoya

Should be called the “no-brainer” Hoya. This succulent is heart-shaped and, like real love, practically impossible to kill.

Heart Leaf Fern

A classic low-maintenance indoor plant with deep green heart-shaped leaves.
