The language of flowers

Back in the Victorian times flowers had major meanings, just sending someone a red chrysanthemum meant I love you, or sending aloe meant sorrow or grief.  Even the way that flowers were arranged could change the whole meaning turning ‘ my heart beats for you’, into ‘you’re the most brutal person I’ve ever met!’  😥

As the language progressed more and more flowers got meanings and that gave birth to more complicated messages even now the language of flowers can still be used and a good dictionary for it is here.

Here are some of the flowers we have and their meanings.
