FLORIOGRAPHY

Floriography, or the language of flowers, stems from the coded messages of the Victorian era that facilitated the exchange of feelings among the simply unpoetic or those who were forbidden to verbally communicate their passions. Traditionally, different flowers have represented particular sentiments. These are some of a wide variety of interpretations.
