Popular flowers & their Victorian meanings

Sending a friend or loved one flowers is always such a nice gesture – it’s very seldom that someone opens the door to find a delivery man with a bunch of blooms and don’t break out in a spontaneous smile. But did you know that the flowers you send actually have a hidden meaning?

No kidding – back in the Victorian era most popular flowers had very clear-cut associated meanings that were used to send unspoken messages to the intended recipient. These days very few people are versed in the archaic language of flowers, but a there are a handful of die-hard romantics who still stick to their floral guns.
