The Language of Flowers

  • The Victorians used flowers as a means of communication, assigning them  meanings. Giving a person flowers was like passing them a note. In the language  of flowers of the Victorian-era, the violet speaks of retiring modesty and the  image of the “shrinking violet.” The white violet meant candor, but also  innocence, the way a child often speaks without the restraint of an  adult.

Modern Symbolism

  • In our modern equivalent of the language of flowers, violets are often seen  as plants for the home, representative of the family and of marriage. In wedding  bouquets they represent a promise and faithfulness. In dreams they are said to  represent the possibility of marriage or commitment.
