Many flowers have important symbolic meanings. The practice of assigning meanings to flowers is known as floriography. Red roses, for example, symbolize love, beauty, and passion. This is why so many clients choose to express their feelings with red roses -- especially during Valentine's Day season! Poppies are a symbol of consolation in time of death. We also see many irises and lilies during these times of remembrance because they symbolize resurrection and life. Daisies are a symbol of innocence and they are often used to adorn flower girls come wedding season. There are so many other flowers that carry special meanings and symbolize many things. It is no wonder artists like Georgia O' Keefe and Diego Rivera painted so many beautiful portraits of flowers!
