What do flowers and their colors mean?

When deciding on a floral arrangement, remember that the color and type of flower holds a special meaning. Understanding these meanings help ensure your floral arrangement sends the right message.

  • Gerbera. Common to most arrangements, gerberas are associated with cheerfulness.
  • Lily. A lily is a symbol of purity and beauty. White represents modesty, orange is passion and yellow for joyfulness.
  • Iris. This flower is associated with wisdom and compliments, and is a good choice if you wish to say thank you to someone.
  • Chrysanthemum. Popular in many romantic floral arrangements, a chrysanthemum is a symbol of optimism and fidelity. The color influences this meaning. Red refers to love, white to truth and yellow to slighted love.
  • Carnation. A carnation is a symbol of pride and beauty. Red is appropriate for romance and pink for a mother or female relative. White carnations are symbolic of innocence and pure love, possibly for celebrate a birth.
  • Daffodil. This flower is associated with rebirth and new beginnings. Giving a single daffodil is a bad omen. But a bunch is a strong symbol of abundance and fertility.

While each flower has a certain sensibility, color is also important.

  • Red — love, desire and strength
  • Purple — admiration, accomplishment and success
  • Orange — passion, vitality and satisfaction
  • Yellow — friendship and new beginnings
  • Green — fertility, renewal and well-being
  • Blue — peacefulness, truth and serenity
