The Significance of Flowers

Different flowers hold different meanings and I think they are a wonderful way to gift someone special with a unique gift, but also conveys a special message depending on the kind of flower and the color that you give. Since wedding season is in full swing (or maybe you’re planning a wedding for fall), I thought I would share some of my favorite flowers and the meaning behind each one.

red roses - The Significance of Flowers

Red Roses 

Meaning: Passion, Love, Devotion

If you have strong feelings of love, passion and devotion towards someone, these are the perfect and classic choice!

azaleas - The Significance of Flowers


Meaning: Abundance

Azaleas mean abundance so you can happily wish someone lots of abundance this spring (or year) by gifting them with a bouquet of these beauties!

white jasmine - The Significance of Flowers

White Jasmine

Meaning: Sweet Love

This could mean a new love or maybe just a love toward your mom or grandmother. It’s a beautiful way to say “I love you” that’s not necessarily typical.

violets - The Significance of Flowers


Meaning: Loyalty

Violets are a unique way of declaring your commitment to someone. Whether that someone is your family, a significant other, or maybe just someone who needs extra support.

sunflowers - The Significance of Flowers


Meaning: Adoration

Sunflowers are a bright way to express your adoration for someone special.

peonies - The Significance of Flowers


Meaning: Healing

Peonies represent healing and, as such, are the perfect flowers to give someone who has been feeling a little low, either physically or emotionally and needs a pick me up!

bamboo - The Significance of Flowers


Meaning: Good Luck

Okay, so not technically a flower, BUT if you want to wish someone good fortune, these are ideal because they mean “wishing you good fortune and luck.”

pink carnations - The Significance of Flowers

Pink Carnations 

Meaning: Gratitude

If someone you know has recently done something kind or maybe you just feel appreciated by them, then these are the perfect flowers to show your thanks.

yellow roses - The Significance of Flowers

Yellow Roses 

Meaning: Friendship

Yellow roses, unlike their red counterparts, actually represent friendship. These are perfect for gifting to all your close friends in the springtime!

    This is really interesting- I had no idea that different flowers had different meanings. I think peonies have to be my favourite flowers. To me they are stunning. Thanks for joining the #weekendblogshare
