Say it with flowers......


The common saying ‘say it with flowers’ has been around for a long time, this overview of the symbolic meanings of flowers and their colours will help you communicate the right message.


White flowers symbolise purity, cleanliness, freshness, immaculacy, clarity and simplicity. White also indicates innocence, virginity, perfection, natural love and piety. Suitable for: weddings and funerals.


Yellow flowers symbolise energy, strength, growth, cheerfulness and joy. Yellow also symbolises warmth, the sun and new beginnings. Yellow flowers are also great for the start of spring. Suitable for: birthdays and to congratulate someone.


Orange flowers symbolise cheerfulness, warmth, conviviality, optimism, fun, strength, vitality and energy. Suitable for: birthdays and to congratulate someone.


Red flowers are of course often associated with passion, seduction, romance and tenderness. As such, red flowers are great for giving to a lover.
