Anyone beginning their research into the language of flowers may become exasperated quickly when they discover the multiple meanings – or personalities – that one flower may hold. A floriographer affectionately refers to these as the Jekyll & Hyde’s and she knows just which personality to summon when creating her client’s Blooming Expression.
Today I’d like to introduce you to my top 10 Jekyll & Hyde’s
Dr Jekyll MrHyde
|Beech||Prosperity||A lover's tryst|
|Bird of Paradise||Magnificence||Childishness|
|Evening Primose||Happy love||inconstancy|
|Sunflower||Loyal Love||Haughtiness; False Riches|
|Celosia||Unfading Love||Silliness, Frippery|
|Hydrangea||Thank you for understanding||Frigidity, heartlessness|
|Snapdragon||Gracious Lady, strength||'No!', Deception, presumption|
|Tulip, Yellow||There is sunshine in your smile||Hopeless love|
|Marigold||Pretty Love, Affection||Cruelty in love, vulgar minded|
A word of warning – before tossing that bouquet of hydrangea in disgust, or snapping those sunflowers over your knee in outrage; remember to read the accompanying card, for this will clearly state which position the flower has chosen to play in your carefully considered gift.
