In addition to roses, some of the most common flowers are the orchid, the daisy, the lily, the calla, the mimosa, the cyclamen, the sunflower, the carnation, the poppy, the primula and the tulip. These are all those species that in addition to giving or receiving as gifts, often furnish and color our homes infusing perfume, joy and good humor. It is obvious that one cannot list them all because each flower has a precise meaning. Let's start, for example, from the mimosa, the acacia bud that symbolizes modesty. Of this plant there is also a species with white flowers, symbol instead of "hope of love". The Americans gave it as a present for engagements. Innocence, virginity and candor are represented by the classic Lily called also Lilium. This flower is usually given to children and adolescents who are preparing to receive the sacraments of Communion and Confirmation.The orchid is seen as an aphrodisiac flower and symbolizes sensuality. The sunflower represents unhappy love. It is also called Elianto and can also mean adulation or gratitude. Poppy, symbol of sleep and oblivion, is one of those flowers that changes meaning based on color: the red poppy symbolizes pride, the yellow one the richness while the pink one, serenity. The daisy, already from the Middle Ages transmitted a very precise message, the "we have to think", in a modern key read with the classic "I love or not love me". However, it is generally associated with simplicity. In ancient times cyclamen was considered a flower with poisonous roots and for this reason it still transmits messages of diffidence. Finally, the tulip is the flower of true love, without taking anything away from the magic of roses. An ancient legend in fact says that this flower was born from the drops of blood of a young man who took his own life for a disappointment in love.LESS KNOWN SPECIES
After having listed the meanings of some of the most common flowers, it is right to give some space even to the less famous but equally expressive ones. One of these could be dalia, a species that appeared in the Mediterranean regions in the early eighteenth century. These flowers are generally given to express gratitude. Then there is the cornflower that grows wild in the fields and symbolizes the delicacy or even the gardenia that is associated with sincerity. Other species are the magnolia, which symbolizes nobility, and wisteria, friendship. The dandelion is a sign of hope and trust, a species that grows in the countryside, often considered weed. It is said that anciently the peasants expressed a desire, blowing on the seeds of this flower: if they all fell, that dream would come true. There are also those flowers that today give the name to hundreds of people, such as Angelica, Alyssa, Ambrosia, Viola or Erica. Ambrosia symbolizes unrequited love, violet embodies romanticism and is perfect for anniversaries. Erica instead, in the language of flowers, means solitude. The angelica symbolizes inspiration and finally the alyssum, inner tranquility.
Flowers meaning: A LOOK TO THE EAST
The flowers, as already said, have various colors and meanings, different shades from China to Europe.
The chrysanthemum, for example, which we classify as the flower of the dead, for the Orientals symbolizes joy and is even given to brides. The red species is a symbol of love while the white one represents the truth. Azalea is the Chinese symbol par excellence of femininity, but it means luck to us and is generally given as a present before facing an important test. Among other things, this flower often advertises campaigns for fundraisers in support of medicine and research. Finally, the camellias have Chinese and Japanese origins and symbolize beauty and superiority. In the West, on the other hand, the camellia is given in a sense of esteem and admiration.
Of whatever color they are or whatever their meaning, it is certain that the flowers are and will always be used, in every corner of the world, to give unique and intense emotions.
