Say it With Flowers This Valentine’s Day

January 27, 2020

Floriography, or the language of flowers, has been a method of coded communication via flowers for thousands of years. Certain blooms have historically held high regard in societies around the world, such as tulips in Turkey or cherry blossoms in Japan. It wasn’t until the Victorian era in the Western world that we interpreted flowers into a language that we still speak today.

This ‘language’ was compiled into many books and guides during that time period, some of which are still in print! Today this language has assimilated into popular culture and we have more ways to communicate than ever, but the language of flowers still prevails; red roses for love, sunflowers for positivity, baby’s breath for purity.
