"The Language and Poetry of Flowers"
The Virtue and Symbolism associated with each flower was very popular with Victorian ladies!
Rose = Love
Pansy (or Heartsease) = Someone is Thinking of You
Violets = Faithfulness
White Lilac = Youthful Innocence
Purple Lilac = The First Emotions of Love
Hydrangea = Boastiness
Nasturtiums = Patriotism
An extensive list can be found within the antique Language and Poetry of Flowers books, found in our Etsy shop, and also in Gallery 3. We also carry fascinating medical quack books from the 1800's!
