Recently I read the book The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh to which I really enjoyed! One of the things that I loved most was the explanation of the underlying language behind flowers. The gift of flowers was once used as a way to share feelings and emotions. In the book there is a dictionary for the different flowers and their meanings. There are many different explanations (some that vary) however I found that the author did a great job in researching her material. I will share with you a few so you can see for yourself!
Passionflower - Passiflora -- meaning is faith
For when you're in trouble! Purple Hyacinth - Hyacinthus Orientalis - please forgive me
Freesia - lasting friendship
I think we all know this one!
A Rose that is Red means - love
