The language of flowers has evolved over the centuries, and varies by culture. It was most popular in the Victorian era (1837-1901), when flowers were used as a means of communication. Every bloom speaks its own message, and a bouquet can be created around a central color, scent, or meaning.
The exotic orchid, for example, is a symbol of seduction and fertility. White orchids express a pure love, whereas pink orchids are meant to seduce. Gerberas and daisies are innocent and questioning: he loves me, he loves me not? Calla lilies signify a great beauty. Gladiolus are the patron flower for the month of August, and sunflowers indicate respect.
Red roses are the classic expression of passionate, true love. Pink roses emphasize joy, happiness and tenderness. Yellow roses denote friendship. Many other flowers express passion, such as chrysanthemums and irises. Azaleas symbolize the joy of love.

Don’t hesitate to share your feelings with someone through a bouquet. We have a large selection of flowers to help you express yourself – as loudly or as subtly as you want!
