Flowers Meaning

From the very origin of a flower’s name to its unique qualities and rich mythology, flowers are suffused with sheer symbolism and meaning. GiftaLove’s flower meaning guide is designed to decipher these hidden mysteries, unearth these floral gems and open up the pages of a whole new language- the language of flowers to speak to your heart.

What we want to say but may not be able to speak out loud is what expressed brilliantly by flowers. We sense the attributes of different blooms and instinctively pick one over another to go well with our mood or the event. We practice this all the time. That’s why we sweep someone off his/her feet with a bunch of bright yellow roses to brighten up their day or speak out loud of love with two dozen red roses.
