Spring’s In Full Swing…Let’s Talk Flowers

by Emma W.R. on April 28, 2017

A red rose means love. The meaning of flowers and when to send them.

How do you feel when someone gives you flowers? Does your reaction vary based on what kind of flower you received? Is the color also a determining factor of what emotions are represented? There are so many flower meanings. Be sure that when you give flowers, communicate the right words or feelings that you want to express. Their beauty offers a significant meaning in situations when words may fail.



They send a clear and powerful message of intense romantic love. The deeper the red, the deeper the meaning. Dark reds show a charitable love while brighter reds reveal devoted passion. Red is the unquestioned color of passion, seduction and desire.
A dozen sensual long-stemmed roses will send a message to your partner that your love burns passionately. They epitomize romance and are a timeless classic to give on your anniversary.


Pink flowers combine playfulness, innocence and sensitivity. Whereas red is the color of deep and abiding love, pink is red’s youthful counterpart. At once caring and also carefree, pink flowers allow you to show love more devoted than romantic.
The gift of pink flowers is a cheerful statement of love and affection. It shows that your love has stayed fresh and youthful, no matter how old you are.


Warm but not mushy, orange offers happiness and joy. It represents pride, energy, and confident vibrancy. Orange flowers also send the message of adventure. This flower will work well in a bouquet for a get well wish, birthday or any special joyous occasion.


Peach offers a little more friendship than the cutesy romance of a straight pink flower. Mixed with orange and yellow, peach confirms appreciation and warm feelings. Friendship is the true meaning of peach flowers.


Trading out romance for simple, ordinary cheer, yellow has one of the brightest symbolic meanings of flowers. They represent friendship, trust, compassion and respect. Yellow flowers, with their soft radiance express a big smile.
Brighten up the spirits of a friend that is under the weather for a get well soon. This color also works for birthday cheer, a thank you or a job well done.



Green ties in with the environment and health. It represents harmony with nature and good fortune. It is optimistic, alive and coveys wellness. A good choice as well for a get well soon or an uplifting thinking of you.


The symbolic meaning of flowers in placid blue is easily understood. Cooling anxiety and invoking peace, blue flowers represent calm and tranquility. They quiet the emotions and create a contemplative mood. They also speak of intimacy and are perfect flowers for long-term couples who want to communicate their deep and abiding trust.
The peace derived from blue flowers also makes them an appropriate sympathy or get well flower.



Purple flowers have an enchantment and mystery to them. They symbolize charm, grace and elegance. They represent a deep respect and admiration. Purple flowers can make a strong romantic impression as well.



Lavender is not as stuffy as regal purple. Rather, the meaning of lavender flowers is one of womanhood in her prime. The elegance of lavender reflects the grace and feminine beauty. Known for its soothing effect, it evokes serenity and amity. A nice choice for a get well, thank you or birthday.


There is an element of purity in white. The symbolic meaning of a white flowers are most associated with innocence, honesty and perfection. Whether this is the purity of a bridal bouquet or the pure feeling and completeness shown at a funeral, it will be a delicate choice.
