Flower colour meanings.

The meaning of flower colours is not perfectly well defined. The symbolism varies a little, but there are some consistencies you can use to match your flowers to a special person, mood, or a meaning you want to express in arrangements or beds:                                          

Red flowers, especially roses, are most often associated with romantic love and passion. They can also mean desire, strength, courage, and respect. 

Pink: For more playful, platonic love, go with pink flowers. They represent happiness, innocence, gentleness, and grace. 

Yellow: Cheerful daffodils, tulips, and other yellow flowers mean joy, friendship, and health. 

Blue flowers, like hydrangea and cornflower, are peaceful and serene and used to promote openness, relaxation, and intimacy. 

White flowers symbolise purity and honesty and have long been traditional components of bridal bouquets. They can also mean sympathy and are used in memorials.

Orange: Vibrant orange flowers, like marigolds and zinnias, represent joy, warmth, and enthusiasm. They can be used to cheer up anyone who is sick or going through a difficult time. 

Purple: The color purple implies royalty. In flowers, it means success, tradition, and admiration. Give purple flowers to arespected mentor.
