Meaning of Flowers

In Victorian times, certain flowers had specific meanings because the flower selection was limited and people used more symbols and gestures to communicate than words.  But today, with so many flower choices, there are no rules – it’s the sentiment that gives that gift its meaning.  Many people assign their own personal meaning 0 a flower of color that might remind them of a special person or a moment in their lives.
