As the saying goes: ‘Say it with flowers!’ And indeed, people have been saying it with flowers since time immemorial, using the special meanings of flowers to express all kinds of emotions. Whether to woo somebody special on Valentine’s Day, display filial affection on Father’s Day or Mother’s Day, or to express a ‘get well soon’ message for somebody ill, flower meanings have been used to say it all. In fact, the symbolic meaning of flowers has given birth to a language of its own, known as floriography.
Apart from each of the names of flowers being imbued with symbolism such as romance or sympathy or affection, all flowers express specific phrases as well. As a matter of fact, the Victorians were the ones who used flower symbolism most profusely to communicate subtly what they wanted to say, but could not speak aloud since decorum would not allow it. With flowers, and their symbolic meanings, they could verbalize a communication or evince a feeling. Thus, the Victorians would often make a bouquet of flowers as a revelation of an unvoiced message to the person receiving it, using various symbolisms like the number of flowers, the arrangement, the color, and of course the type of flower.
So, if you want to express your deep-felt feelings to someone special in your life, in a thoughtful and unique way, check out the list of flower names given below, and find out what message you can devise using the special language of flowers. Or, if it is a gift of flowers that you have received, check out the flower names and their meanings to find out what it means. Is it love? Or is it ecstasy?
