What do flower types and colours represent

What do flower types and colours represent

What is the common meaning of the Iris flower?

Irises are an exciting example of how something can be so simple and yet so complex. Irises have a long history that goes back to the beginning of recorded time and yet the flower itself is straightforward in its construction, consisting of nothing more than a bulb and a few petals. The colours of irises are also very complex, with some varieties having patterns and nuances that scientists have only recently begun to understand.

What is the common meaning of the Lily flower?

Botanically known as Lilium, lilies are a genus of herbaceous flowering plants growing from bulbs, all with large prominent flowers with six petal-like tepals and many stamens. Commonly referred to as the “queen of flowers”, lilies are native to the northern hemisphere and grow in a variety of habitats, from forest edges and meadows to mountains and prairies. (The lilies in your garden are most likely hybrids of the Oriental and Asiatic species.) The word “lily” comes from the Latin Lilium, which means “a lily-like flower”, and is used as a common name for all genus members. A lot of the bouquets used by include the Iris, Rose or Lily featured in this article

What does the Orchid mean

Orchids, named from the Greek word Orchis, the term originates from the ancient Greek myth of a man named Orchis. (No, we’re not kidding.) The legend states that a beautiful boy named Orchis died when he was struck by lightning, and Venus planted his testicles on the earth to commemorate him. And that’s pretty much it, but the name stuck! The first orchids were believed to have grown in tropical Asia and Malaysia, and they were first cultivated in Ancient Egypt. (We’re guessing they were used in love potions.) Over time, orchid fans developed different growing orchids methods, and it wasn’t long before they were widely used.

What does the Rose mean

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 common meaning of the Hydrangeaflower?

The Hydrangea, or hortensia, is a genus of 70 or more flowering plants native to southern and eastern Asia, though only a handful is commonly cultivated. The blue Hydrangea is one of the most popular garden plants ever, with countless cultivars in an extensive range of colours, most with large, showy blooms. The genus was named in 1753 by Carl Linnaeus in honour of a French botanist, Joseph Pitton de Tournefort, who first described a hydrangea in the 15 May 1694 issue of Journal des Savants.

What does the Daisy mean

Daisy chains, a popular children’s game, were named after the flower daisies, which resemble the chains of daisies-conjoined flowers. Daisy chains are a game played by children, in which a daisy chain is created by linking the hands of as many people as wish to participate by placing one person’s left hand into the right hand next to them. The chain is then given a push in one direction and as the people in the chain fall over, they all call out “daisy” in unison. The player who remains standing is declared the winner. In the 19th century, the daisy chain was a symbol of friendship and unity.
