What do flower types and colours represent

What does the Iris mean

The iris flower has a long history, dating back as far as 400 BC. To be more precise, the word iris comes from the Greek word for rainbow. The Greeks used to consider the iris a sign from the gods and thought it would bring them good luck. The Greeks also believed the iris had extraordinary healing powers, so they used it to treat eye diseases and infections. It is also known that the ancient Romans utilised iris medicinally. The word “iridology” comes from iris. A lot of the bouquets used by https://www.australiaflowerdelivery.net/ include the Iris, Rose or Lily featured in this article

What does the Lily mean

Botanically known as Lilium, lilies are a genus of herbaceous flowering plants growing from bulbs, all with large prominent flowers with six petal-like tepals and many stamens. Commonly referred to as the “queen of flowers”, lilies are native to the northern hemisphere and grow in a variety of habitats, from forest edges and meadows to mountains and prairies. (The lilies in your garden are most likely hybrids of the Oriental and Asiatic species.) The word “lily” comes from the Latin Lilium, which means “a lily-like flower”, and is used as a common name for all genus members. A lot of the bouquets used by https://www.floristnz.co.nz/ include the Iris, Rose or Lily featured in this article

What does the Orchid mean

It turns out that the Orchidaceae family of flowering plants, which is the most prominent family of flowering plants, with over 21, 000 species, is a lot more interesting than you might have thought. For one thing, the Orchidaceae family includes flowers you’ve probably heard of, like lilies and roses. But it also consists of some of the world’s most bizarre-looking flowers, such as Dracula orchids and Voodoo lilies.

What does the Rose mean

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, or so goes the famous quote by William Shakespeare. But if you were to use the same quote to describe a rose, you’d be missing out on a lot of the plant’s history. The rose plant is a beautiful flower cultivated for thousands of years, but it wasn’t until the 18th century that roses became the most popular flower in the world. Brief History: Roses have been cultivated for at least 4, 000 years, possibly much longer, beginning in the Fertile Crescent. They were first described in writing in China around 2700 BC, and by the time of the Roman Empire, they were being used regularly.

What does the Hydrangea mean

Hydrangeas are beautiful flowering shrubs native to Asia but have adapted to grow in most temperate climates, including North America. Though they are long-blooming, they are short-lived and require a great deal of maintenance, including frequent pruning to keep them attractive and promote fresh blooms. However, once you get them established, a hydrangea is relatively low-maintenance, especially if you choose a dwarf variety, these grow 2 to 3 feet tall.

What does the Daisy mean

The history of daisies is long and varied. Origins are unclear, but historians believe daisies evolved from the sunflower family and were introduced to Europe from the Middle East around the early 12th century. Daisies cultivated in Europe in the 16th century, were familiarly called “Ladies’ Smock”. The name “daisy” comes from Old English, the word for “day” and refers to the flower’s petals, which are said to resemble the sun. (The fact that daisies close up at night may also have contributed to the name.)
