Pink Plants for Your Valentine

Pink plant #10 – Syngonium podophyllum ‘Pink’

Soft pink leaves make this a great choice for a Valentine’s Day gift.

Let’s start this list with a super easy care houseplant. This one needs medium/bright indirect light and water every 7-10 days. And they are available as really large full plants or as a small windowsill plant, whatever you’d like. A sweet plant for your sweet Valentine.

Pink plant #9 – Begonia ‘Hugh McLauchlan’

There are so many Begonias out there and many of them have pink on their leaves. I used a photo of this Begonia as an example, but there are hundreds of varieties from which to choose. If your Valentine is a Begonia lover, one of the pink Begonias would make a fantastic Valentine’s Day gift.

Pink plant #8 – Kalanchoe fedtschenkoi variegata

Kalanchoe fedtschenkoi variegata has bright pink margins around blue and white leaves.

If your Valentine is a succulent lover, this is a great choice. Each plant has its own unique patterns of variegation. These plants grow babies along their leaf margins and the babies tend to be bright pink in color also.

Pink plant #7 – Cordyline fruticosa ‘Maria’

That pink!!!

Bright and beautiful color on these leaves makes this plant irresistible. At least for me. Cordyline require a lot of sun, so if you have a South facing window or some grow lights, this plant is a great choice for you (or your Valentine).

Pink Plant #6 – Aglaonema ‘Two Tone Moonstone’

The sectoral coloration on this leaf is…well…

Aglaonemas are super easy care plants with tons of different cultivars. Many plant collectors are fiercely devoted to the Aglaonema genus. All they require is medium bright light and water once every 7-10 days and the payoff is some of the most gorgeous foliage in the houseplant market.

Pink plant #5 – Calathea roseopicta ‘Dottie’

Calathea roseopicta ‘Dottie’ is one of my favorites of this genus.

Dottie is so gorgeous on her own, but I have noticed that she has this ability to make the plants around her look amazing as well. The leaves are a deep purple with bright pink markings and a large rounded shape. If you have a medium light location with 50% (or higher) humidity, this is a perfect plant for you.

Pink plant #4 – Hoya kentiana variegata

New leaves on the Hoya kentiana variegata can come in a very bright pink color. They’ll lose the pink color with age.

For all those Hoya Heads out there, I felt the need to represent. Most Hoyas don’t have pink on their leaves but this one can achieve a brilliant pink color in high light situations. Perfect someone who has room for a new plant in a West facing window.

Pink plant #3 – Peperomia ‘Pink Lady’

Peperomia ‘Pink Lady’

One of the “Ripple Peperomias”, this fancy girl is easy on the eyes and easy care. This plant can be difficult to find in some areas of the U.S., so if you see one make sure to snatch it up. Those pink stems and blushing leaves are the perfect way to tell your Valentine, “I love you.”

Pink plant #2 – Episcia ‘Strawberry Patch’

Episcias don’t just have gorgeous foliage, they also have pretty flowers.

If your Valentine is a fan of African Violets, an Episcia would be a great plant gift. They are in the same plant family and require similar care. And their leaves speak for themselves.

Pink plant #1 – Calathea ‘White Star’

These leaves actually look like they’re blushing.

I saved my favorite pink leaves for last. Don’t let the name trick you, White Star has loads of pink coloring. These leaves actually look like they’re blushing. Can you think of anything more charming??? Any plant lover will appreciate this beauty.

I hope this was a fun for you. It was fun for me! I’d love to know which pink plants would be on your wish list. Please comment if you’d like to share your most desired pink plants.
