Why should I buy flowers as an apology?

Flowers have been time-tested as a way to effectively convey a message or feeling that may be difficult to fully express with words. When you’ve hurt someone, giving them flowers can help tell them how much they truly mean to you. Flowers also tend to be uplifting and cheery, especially if you choose flowers they love.

How do I choose flowers for an apology?

Flower type

The most common apology flowers are roses, carnations, hyacinths, orchids and tulips.

  • Roses are well-known as a symbol of love. If you’ve hurt someone and made them upset, roses are perfect to let them know that they are loved and appreciated.
  • Carnations symbolize remembrance, so this flower is perfect for apologizing if you forgot a special occasion or an important date.
  • Hyacinths are said to resemble peace and truth, so if you want to ask for forgiveness after a fight or you have said something wrong, hyacinths will do the trick.
  • Orchids are very resilient and they last longer than some other types of flowers. When you give someone orchids, it lets them know that your regret also endures. Orchids, especially white ones, also symbolize sincerity.
  • Tulips symbolize new beginnings, peace and forgiveness.

Flower color

Flower colors also bear important meanings. You don’t have to use the exact flowers listed above. Just knowing the different flower colors and what they symbolize can be helpful.

  • Red symbolizes love, confidence and action.
  • Pink also conveys love and is a symbol of beauty.
  • Blue represents truth and peace.
  • Indigo means deep contemplation.
  • White is a symbol of sincerity, purity and cleanliness.

You can find these flowers online beautifully arranged in a bouquet using a single or a combination of two or three varieties. Whatever you choose, the most important thing is to choose from the heart for the recipient to feel the sincerity of your apology.
