The Language of Flowers on KLCS


Everybody likes to receive flowers. But what does it mean if you give

lavender to your wife and basil to your secretary? Whether you’re on the

giving or receiving end, flowers make a statement. Sometimes a strong

one. For the love in your life, red roses are interpreted as love and

beauty. Camellia flowers represent excellence with Clematis for mental

beauty. If you’ve ever received Dahlias before are you sure someone’s

not hinting of instability? Daisies are safe to give as they emulate

innocence. Dill is for those that are irresistible. Remembering someone

with Forget-me-not and Pansies are for fond memories. Oh, yeah. Lavender

for your wife – not good it means distrust and basil to your secretary

means love.
