I love flowers. I usually buy them based on feel, look, and most importantly, price. But what if I bought my flowers based on what they brought into my home? 

A friend of mine once stopped me from purchasing an Orchid because according to Feng Shui, they suck the positive energy out of your home. (remember that next time you bring someone flowers for a housewarming gift).

Orchids are the only flower I’ve ever heard paired with a negative connotation. Below are a very short list of flowers and their meanings. Use this to guide your next purchase.

Iris: eloquence, royalty, faith, wisdom, hope, valor

Jasmine: beauty, sensuality, love, purity

Sunflower: adoration, platonic love, admiration, loyalty

Red Rose: passionate, requited love, desire

Peony: bashfulness, wealth, compassion, beauty, happy marriage

Lavender: purity, silence, devotion, grace, calmness

Lilac: affection, youthful innocence, confidence, humility

Anthurium: hospitality, happiness, abundance

Daisy: innocence, purity, true love, new beginnings

Anemone: fading hope, forgotten love, faires, anticipation

Gardenia: purity, hope, trust, secret love, dreams, clarity

Hyacinth: sincerity, sporty attitude, playfulness, rashness, jealousy

Daffodil: creativity, inspiration, renewal, awareness, unrequited love
