Description

“Floriography”: the language of flowers

Thousands of years of folklore, mythology & religious tradition have contributed to the meanings we ascribe to flowers today. Floriography peaked in popularity during the Victorian era when, armed with floral dictionaries, gentlemen would send cryptic messages to ladies with specific nosegays or tussie mussies called “talking bouquets”. 

Still today we have a tradition of birth month flowers, the meanings of which are rooted in floriography. Similar to zodiac signs or birthstones, it is believed you inherit the characteristics of the flower assigned to your birth month. 

June has 2 flowers- rose & honeysuckle; one highly cultivated, one wild & tenacious. Roses have a long history of being loved. In fact, the earliest known gardening was the planting of rose bushes by nomadic peoples along their most travelled routes. The peachy-coral variety means happiness; the same meaning ascribed to honeysuckle. With the colors of sunrise and the most sweetly fragranced blossoms, it’s no surprise this mixed bouquet of peach, coral & yellow doubly represents the ‘joie de vivre’. . . . so fitting of June.
