The Symbolism of Flowers

The symbolism of flower colours is steeped in tradition.

There is more to flowers than their sublime beauty and fragrance. The Victorians discovered this centuries ago when they began using flowers in different hues to express various feelings, from love to admiration and chastity to friendship.

Here is our guide to the meaning of flower colours.
