What do flower types and colours symbolise

What does the Iris represent

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 floral items used by include the Iris, Rose or Lily featured in this article

What is the normal symbolism of the Lily flower?

Even though the flower is closely associated with the Virgin Mary, the Lily has been around long before Christianity existed. The earliest archaeological evidence of the Lily dates back to the Great Pyramid of Giza, which was built in 2680 B.C. The lily features on almost every ancient civilisation’s list of sacred flowers. And it’s not hard to see why. The Lily is a complex flower. Its distinguishing feature is the centre of the flower, made of several concentric circles of colourful petals. Many of the floral items used by include the Iris, Rose or Lily featured in this article

What is the normal symbolism of the Orchid flower?

Orchid plants are the largest genera of flowering plants on earth and the third largest genus of plants overall. They make up nearly 20% of all the plant species in the world. Orchids are native to almost every continent, and you can (mostly) find an orchid native to every continent or significant island except for Antarctica. Orchids are so beloved that they have inspired people to create more than 100, 000 hybrids just in the past fifty years. Orchids are a diverse group of plants defined by three things: * flowers that are usually fragrant and brightly coloured * a unique reproductive structure that features three fused parts (the petals, stamens, and carpels).

What does the Rose represent

Roses are arguably some of the most beautiful flora in the world. There are more than 200 varieties of roses, and all of them have different colours and are capable of producing different odours. Each type of rose has a different story. Some rose varieties date back to biblical times, while others are the result of hybrid breeding programs.

What is the normal symbolism of the Hydrangeaflower?

Hydrangeas are beautiful flowering shrubs native to Asia but have adapted to grow in most temperate climates, including North America. Though they are long-blooming, they are short-lived and require a great deal of maintenance, including frequent pruning to keep them attractive and promote fresh blooms. However, once you get them established, a hydrangea is relatively low-maintenance, especially if you choose a dwarf variety, these grow 2 to 3 feet tall.

What does the Daisy represent

The daisy flower comes in many varieties and colours, and they are among the easiest of flowers to grow in your garden. They will grow in the cracks of a sidewalk! The daisy is a popular icon used to represent the Democratic Party since, in the early 1900s, President Woodrow Wilson used the nickname “Daisy” to refer to his wife.
