Meaning of Flowers

Pink and White

Pink and White

Tingeing the purity of white with the youthful cheer of pink, flowers in this combination are perfect for holiday or celebratory occasions such as Mother’s Day. The pink lends a degree of grace and gentleness which complements the innocence of a white flower. Together, they will show affection for whoever receives them.

Red and White

Red and White

Often symbolizing unity, red and white are also, when in a rose, the flower symbol for England. If you aren’t trying to praise Britannia, however, adding a little white to your red bouquet, whether as separate flower or in striped or variegated types, incorporates innocence into the deep and passionate love of red.

Burgundy

Burgundy

Be careful with darker shades of red. Oftentimes, a deep crimson—especially in a carnation or a rose—signifies mourning, as at a death. Burgundy, however, with its slightly purplish tone, suggests an unconscious sort of beauty. For the lover who underestimates herself, a burgundy bouquet provides a lush, contemplative color.
