The Language of Flowers

Arranged by Meaning

Taken directly from Katherine's Language of Flowers Page

Several times, as I've continued this language of flowers project, people have asked me if I'd do a list organized by the meanings of the flower, rather than by the names of the flowers. Well, I finally did it! So now, if you want to know which flowers mean "I love you" and which mean "Constancy," you can find it here.

The sources are the same ones used in the other list. To find out which source is shown by which citation, see the home page.
