The Power of Flowers



Gifting a bunch of flowers has long been a symbolic gesture. A way to share love, hope, congratulations, sympathy - flowers are a go-to for life’s big moments.

Did you know that different flowers can take on a number of different meanings? Beside the obvious roses for love, each flower type has its own special symbolism to help you communicate how you feel to that special person in your life. 

Recently we’ve seen the sunflower spread as a symbol of unity and hope across the world. Ukraine’s national flower has appeared in windows, on statues and all over social media, sharing the message that we stand with the war-stricken country. Closer to home, we’ve seen friends sending bunches of sunflowers as a way of saying ‘I’m here for you’.

Daffodils, known for being a symbol of new beginnings and rebirth, are often gifted to welcome a new baby.

Tulips can take on a variety of meanings depending on their colour. White tulips represent purity, honour and holiness, making them a gift perfect for someone celebrating a religious milestone. They’re also a great way to say I’m sorry or express condolences, and are often seen at funerals alongside white lillies.

Although not always the first choice for Valentine’s Day, coloured tulips generally represent true love.

Potted hydrangeas are often popular gifts for Mother’s Day, as with the right care and attention, they can be a gift that lasts. Hydrangeas are also seen as a symbol of love, harmony and peace, and the flower itself is known to represent gratitude, grace and beauty.
