Description
Information
Discover the enchanting language of floriography.



In the Victorian era, the giving, receiving and wearing of flowers could transmit a multitude of coded messages. This allusive language – called floriography – meant that people could sidestep the strict social etiquette of the time and declare their love, warn a rival or wish good luck. The Language of Flowers details the meanings attributed to flowers and plants by the Victorians, and reveals them anew to the modern reader
