Know The Meaning Of Flowers Before You Give Them To Someone

Flowers are very beautiful and are given away to loved ones on special occasions. But not all flowers come with a positive connotation. While some flowers represent love, passion, and admiration, there are those as well that stand for hatred, jealousy, anger, resentment, and other such negative feelings.

You must therefore know the meaning of flowers before you give them to your near and dear one. Here are the meanings of some of the popular flowers that are given on birthdays, wedding anniversaries, and birth of a baby, funeral/death, Mother’s Day, and other occasions in life.

  • Carnation – Fascination
  • Daisy – Innocence
  • Orchid – Magnificence
  • Rose – Happy love
  • Sunflower – Devotion
  • Sweet Pea – Blissful Pleasure
  • Tulip – Perfect love
  • Iris – Faith, hope
  • Chrysanthemum – Cheerfulness
  • Lily – purity

As well as the flowers, even the colors have special meanings. For instance, the color yellow stands for friendship, white for peace, red for passion, and pink for admiration. If you want to express your love to someone, you must send her/him red roses. And, if you are expressing your grief or sympathy on the death of a loved one, it would be good to send white lilies or carnations.

It is better to know the hidden meaning of flowers and then send appropriate flowers that can convey your emotions and feelings. Sending wrong flowers can give away incorrect message and can even spoil your relationship with the recipient.
