Flower color meanings

All flowers have a meaning. Understanding these flower color meanings is an important task as after knowing these different flower color meanings you can convey your feelings to the other person with much ease.

The flower colors you choose for a bouquet can be as important as the types of flowers used in an arrangement.
The meaning of flower colors is a unique aspect of symbolism you can use to send a special message to someone.

Many colors have deep spiritual and religious meanings (such as black symbolizing evil) or specific meanings to those in the business world (such as green symbolizing money).
To lend you a helping hand in choosing the perfect colored flower for expression of your feelings, we here provide you with different flower color meanings.

  • Black flower color: - Power, elegance, farewell, mystery. Black is generally associated with negative things, so you may want to reserve this for breaking up. However, it's also associated with mystery and elegance, so you may want to use it if it's given with something else, such as jewelry. A great idea would be a black, velvet lined jewelry box, with something special of a different color inside. We're not aware of any black flowers (other than those that have been dyed or have died), but it's probably a good idea to not give your partner black flowers unless you're breaking up.
  • Blue flower color: Stability, trustworthy, tranquil. While Light Blue is a symbol of anxiety over problems such as money and health, Turquoise can mean fulfilment for those with great intelligence. Blue is typically the color of peace and stability. Deep blues tend to be more 'trust' based colors, while lighter blues are signs of peace, quiet, and tranquil (think 'ocean'). If you're a deep, intimate couple, blue flowers or gifts are perfect.
  • Coral flower color: - Desire, love
    A warm color that is a shade of love, but more importantly, desire. Send coral roses to your partner to let you that know how much you really want them.
  • Green flower color: Harmony, fertility, richness. The meaning of flower color in green is about renewal, growth, hope, health and youth. Green is a rich, cool color perfect for the harmonious couple. Give her a plant and a note telling her how truly rich she has made your life. Green is also the color of the heart chakra, and so it takes on the meaning of good health.
  • Indigo Flowers color: The meaning of flower colors runs deep in the realm of indigo. Consider the cavernous depths of the ocean where currents still themselves to better hear the secrets of their own watery womb. Then consider the yawning waves of indigo clouds that roll on the horizon as an impressive storm brews. Indigo speaks to us of emotions, depth, and expressive moods. Give indigo flowers to people who do too much. The ones you love who never sit still, always running, always doing – these people need indigo in their lives to keep them still so they can listen to the secrets of their own soul-womb.
