The Language of Flowers (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


This is a book that decodes the rich, evocative language of flowers and helps you choose the perfect personalized gift. Since ancient times, flowers, herbs and other plants have been used in symbolic ways to convey a multitude of emotions and feelings, creating a unique form of communication. In this book, flowers are arranged in chapters according to their meanings, starting with Qualities & Virtues and moving on to Happiness, Friendship, Love & Passion, Marriage, Family, Beauty, Youth & Age, Ambition & Success, Sadness & Loss - making it simple to identify the right bloom for any occasion. For example, give polyanthus for confidence, orchids for beauty, or lilac for the first stirrings of love.
