“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.

Jonquils are March’s flower & they symbolize friendship and domestic bliss. This sunny bloom conjures up feelings of its native home– the sun-drenched Mediterranean coastline. Although closely related to the Daffodil, Jonquils distinguish themselves by their thin, tubular leaves and multiple blooms per stem. In many places around the world, the appearance of the Jonquil each year signifies the arrival of spring and is therefore much anticipated & celebrated.
