When we say a flower name, everyone just starts fluttering around saying the same thing. But not everyone is aware of the implications behind it. Most of us have come across different names for flowers and most of us probably did not know what they actually meant. For instance, you may have heard of orange, red, pink, yellow and many other common names for flowers but how exactly do these terms mean? In this article, I am hoping to shed some light on the various meanings of different colors of flowers and what they symbolize as well.
As mentioned above, the flower’s name can mean many different things depending on the flowers you are talking about. A simple blooming rose may in fact stand for all the opposite, meaning all the opposite things! On the other hand, a rare and exotic blooming lily may in fact stand for beauty, grace, femininity and all the feminine qualities. Let us take a look at the different flowers meaning and discover what they symbolize.
A lot of flower names have something to do with the seasons. The word for spring is “hardy” while “flower” in wintertime is “cold” in Japanese. Spring and autumn are famous as the perfect flower colors but not many florists use this information to good advantage when giving out seasonal flower names. The reason is that most flowers bud in the spring or summer and bloom for a short period of time. It is during the fall that we see most flowers blooming and being used in decoration, and therefore the term “seasonal” becomes very relevant.
Some of the most popular flowers names in English though are simply “blooming”. These flowers are known to be quite self-sustaining and bloom constantly all year round. Some of these flowers may have a short flowering season but can still bloom continuously all year round. Some popular flowering plants include the daisy and the hibiscus.
Plants with no leaves will usually be perennials which means that they only grow in one location and at one time, the flowers will not grow in a partial shade. These plants include the iris, honeysuckle and the gladioli. Plants like the iris and the honeysuckle which have long leaves will usually be perennials, and the gladioli can grow up to six feet tall and bloom forever. There are also plants like the alyssum and the anemone, which can grow up to six feet tall and bloom in partial shade. Some more exotic flowers like the celandine and the asters which are annuals can also grow as perennials and bloom forever in a part of the world that never gets freezing weather.
When choosing the flower name for your bouquet, you must choose one that will have multiple uses. Flowers are normally given as gifts during the springtime of the year as a token of love and affection. This is why it is a good idea to choose a flower that has a dual purpose. If the flower that you choose blooms during springtime, it must also be able to survive harsh winter conditions or have a hardy ability to endure the cold. If the flowers are able to live through the winter then they should still be able to bloom again the next year in a favorable climate.
