Flower Meaning

Flower Meaning

Learn the language of flowers

When watching a romantic movie or reading a poem, it’s pretty common to come across a reference to flowers. This is no surprise, as these beauties are so diverse and magnificent, with each flower having its own unique flower meaning to make it that much more interesting and meaningful.
Yip, flower meanings are a real thing. Take for instance yellow roses, the meaning of yellow roses is that of friendship. Indeed yellow roses convey that you think of someone as a friend. Because we are awesome people, we flower fairies at NetFlorist are here to help you out with flower meaning so that you don’t send some kind of awkward, unintentional, message of “let’s just be friends” to the woman or man you’re deeply enamoured with.
Amaryllis: this flower is symbolic of splendid beauty and it is also used to indicate worth beyond beauty or pride.
Azalea: The flower meaning for the azalea flower is that of “take care of yourself for me”; temperance; fragile passion and is a Chinese symbol of womanhood.
Anemone: On a darker note the beautiful anemone indicates fading hope and a feeling of having been forsaken. On a positive note it symbolizes anticipation.
Begonia: The flower meaning of the humble begonia is that it has, traditionally been seen as a warning.  It also means being fanciful and having dark thoughts (Ooooohhh scary!).
Calla Lily or Arum Lily flower meaning: This flower symbolizes magnificence and beauty. White Calla lilies combine these two attributes with purity and innocence associated with the colour white to make it the perfect choice of flower in a wedding bouquet.
Carnation flower meaning: Traditionally carnations symbolizes pride and beauty. A red carnation symbolizes love, pride and admiration; a pink carnation symbolizes the love of a woman or a mother; a purple carnation symbolizes fickleness; a yellow carnation symbolizes disdain, rejection or disappointment (avoid, avoid, avoid if you want to flatter a woman); while a white carnation symbolizes innocence and pure love. A striped carnation conveys refusal (like the bars on a window keeping someone else).
Chrysanthemum flower meaning: The chrysanthemum symbolizes fidelity, optimism, joy and long life. A red chrysanthemum conveys love; a white chrysanthemum symbolizes truth and loyal love while a yellow chrysanthemum symbolizes slighted love.
Daisy : The cute little daisy symbolizes innocence and purity. It conveys loyal love as well, so if you have a special person in your life that you want to show your dedication to then this is the flower for you!
Gerbera flower meaning:  In the language of flowers, Gerberas convey innocence, modesty and purity, whilst white Gerberas indicate innocence; yellow Gerberas say 'I'll try harder' and orange Gerberas say 'You are my sunshine'.
Iris: With regards to flower meaning, the iris symbolizes eloquence. The purple iris is symbolic of wisdom and compliments. Blue irises symbolizes faith and hope. Yellow iris symbolizes passion, while white iris symbolizes purity.
Lily: White lilies are a sweet symbol for purity and virtue. Peruvian lilies represent friendship and devotion to a person. White stargazer lilies expresses sympathy and condolence and are used in sympathy bouquets traditionally. Pink stargazer lilies are a symbol of wealth and prosperity (for all the big ballers out there).
Rose flower meaning: Roses have been around for about 32 million years and as any person who has ever sent a bunch of red roses will know- these flowers carry some pretty hefty meaning!

  • Red rose meaning: romance and love
  • Pink rose meaning: Gratitude
  • Orange rose meaning: Desire
  • Yellow rose meaning: Friendship
  • White rose meaning: Purity
  • Lavender rose meaning: Enchantment
Protea Flower meaning: The national flower of South Africa, Greek legend tells us that the stunning protea was named after Proteus, the son of Poseidon who had the ability to change his shape and form. These gorgeous flowers stand for diversity, strength and courage.
