The meaning of flower names, Part 1.

March 14, 2015

One of the most visited pages on our old website was The Meaning of Flower Names. It's a question that we are often asked, but I had not realised just how many searched that topic on Google.


For some reason, which I can't explain, I decided to leave that page out of our new website, but we are still regularly asked the question, so back by public demand, this time on our blog in several parts is:


The Meaning of Flower Names.


Acacia: Hidden love, Beauty in withdrawal 
Ambrosia: Love requited 
Amaryllis: Pridefulness 
Aster: Symbolizing love, Delicacy 
Anemone: A love that is diminishing, Vanishing hopes 
Almond Blossom: Symbolizing hope, Delicacy, Sweetness 
Apple Blossom: Good fortune, Harbinger of better things, A strong liking 
Arum: Intense feeling of love
