What do flower varieties and colours symbolise

What does the Iris mean

The iris flower has a long history, dating back as far as 400 BC. To be more precise, the word iris comes from the Greek word for rainbow. The Greeks used to consider the iris a sign from the gods and thought it would bring them good luck. The Greeks also believed the iris had extraordinary healing powers, so they used it to treat eye diseases and infections. It is also known that the ancient Romans utilised iris medicinally. The word “iridology” comes from iris. Many of the arrangements used by include the Iris, Rose or Lily featured in this article

What is the standard meaning of the Lily flower?

The Lily is a flower which has been a source of fascination and mystery since ancient times. According to legend, it was the nectar of the lotus that brought about the birth of Venus. Lily’s name comes from the Latin Lilium, which in turn is thought to derive from the Greek word for Lily, leirion. The origin of the lily symbol is linked to the flower’s early uses as a medicinal herb. (Many people associate the flower with purity and royal power, due to it being a flower often used in portraits of the Virgin Mary.) Many of the arrangements used by include the Iris, Rose or Lily featured in this article

What is the standard meaning of the Orchid flower?

Orchids are perhaps the most diverse and complex group of flowering plants, with over 22, 000 species and thousands of hybrids and cultivars in existence. Despite their variation and complexity, everyone seems to agree on one thing: orchids are beautiful and attractive plants. Humans have cultivated them for many millennia due to their refined beauty and elegant structure.

What does the Rose mean

The rose is considered the queen of flowers and the queen of perfumes. The rose is of Middle Eastern origin. It was cultivated in Persia since the time of the ancient Egyptians. The ancient Greeks and Romans also cultivated roses. Over time the rose spread to Europe and England. The ancient Romans also used roses to decorate banquets and to perfume the air of their drinking parties. The rose is a symbol of friendship, love and passion. The rose is also a symbol of secrecy and silence. Because of its beauty, the rose is also a symbol of admiration. The rose represents the purity of a woman. The rose represents a lot of different things for different people and in different cultures.

What is the standard meaning of the Hydrangeaflower?

The Hydrangea, also known as hortensia, is a genus of flowering plants native to southern and eastern Asia and the Americas. The genus is named after its original description in 1753 in Flora Graeca by Philip Miller and originally included just eight species; it has since been expanded to around 70 species. Famously, hydrangeas produce no nectar and are little visited by pollinating insects. This has led to an exciting situation, uncommon in plants, that the species of Hydrangea are highly self-compatible—they can pollinate themselves. This has made them a popular subject for plant breeders.

What does the Daisy mean

The history of daisies is long and varied. Origins are unclear, but historians believe daisies evolved from the sunflower family and were introduced to Europe from the Middle East around the early 12th century. Daisies cultivated in Europe in the 16th century, were familiarly called “Ladies’ Smock”. The name “daisy” comes from Old English, the word for “day” and refers to the flower’s petals, which are said to resemble the sun. (The fact that daisies close up at night may also have contributed to the name.)
