Now the reason I bring this up other then wanted you to want the story when I'm done with it. Is I have been researching flower meanings for the story and wow are there some doozies out there.
There is a huge range of means like Arbutus means You're the only one I love while Asphodel means My regrets follow you to the grave some as simple as a Begonia means Beware and a Bellflower Disappointment. It's Shocking how sinister some of the simplest flowers can be in the right or wrong context. Some a very specific in what they mean like A striped carnation means rejection or a red Chrysanthemum means I love you.And others have many meanings that need other flowers their context to be clear like Columbine can be the symbol of a deceived lover, or mean ingratitude or faithlessness where a Gardenia can mean You're lovely, secret love, joy, sweet love or even just good luck.
So maybe next time you get a bouquet you should look for the hidden meaning or better yet look into it before you send your sweetie a bunch?
