Sending Valentine’s Day flowers became a tradition in the 17th century, according to lovingly.com. And roses have long been a symbol of love because they are the favorite flower of Venus, the Goddess of Love.
Flowers each have their own meaning, the language of flowers being called floriography. Their meanings can be traced back to the Ancient Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, and Chinese. Flowers were often given as gifts during the Middle Ages. Then the Victorians gave every flower significance.
You can send a message to your love with flowers, too. Red roses stand for love and pink roses mean perfect love. If your heart aches for your love, then add carnations to your arrangements. Primroses mean longing. Here are four florists who can help tell your love how you feel.
