'My love is like a red, red rose, that's newly sprung in June...'
wrote Robbie Burns, and for hundreds of years flowers have
held hidden meanings, derived from mythology.
The first flowers appeared on our planet over 130 million
years ago creating beauty, color and wonderful scents. Flowers
have been given as gifts since time immemorial.
The delicate beauty of flowers has fascinated people of all
nations and backgrounds for centuries. They have been cultivated
for their beauty, aroma and been given meaning.
Through the centuries flowers have been attributed far deeper
significance, even going so far as to have their own "language",
referred to as Floriography. Discover it yourself.
All plants, from herbs to flowers, have always been used as
a signal for beauty or love, as stunning decoration or as
a remedy for ailments, and they all have other meanings.
