The Beauty of Flowers
Copyright © 2006 Karen Escaland
Avon Flowers

Flowers add beauty to our surroundings. A kitchen table dressed 
with a floral arrangement of fresh-cut flowers is inviting and 
welcoming to any guest. A vase filled with flowers at your 
bedside creates a fresh smelling aroma of spring time. Even 
flowers given as a gift bring a smile to the person who is 
receiving them.

Magic of Flowers

The act of giving a fresh-cut flower is often associated with 
romance and an expression of one's feelings. The magic, if any, 
is in the "air".  A sweet smelling scent that is pleasing to the 
nose and human senses.

Past studies have illustrated that a "scent of a flower" can 
affect a human beings emotions. Odors can make us irritable or 
happy. Even color plays an important role.

Meaning Behind a Flower

Beyond popular belief, there is no "set" meaning behind a 
specific type or color of flower. People today give flowers with 
their own personalized touch.  However, the Society of American 
Florists has compiled a list of a variety of different flowers 
and their meaning according to the historical records on-hand. 

Here are a few by type:
 * Anemone-fragile
 * Apple Blossom-promise
 * Baby's Breath-festivity
 * Begonia-deep thoughts
 * Camellia-gracious
 * Daisy-innocence
 * Forget-Me-Not-remember me forever
 * Holly-domestic happiness
 * Lilac-first love
 * Orchid-delicate beauty

By color:
 * Pink-friendship
 * Red-passion
 * Red & White-love unity
 * Yellow-zealous
 * Purple-royalty

Fresh Cut Flowers

With an expanding global market and advanced technology, more and 
more varieties are available year round.  Fresh cut flowers used 
alone or mixed with others create a beautiful arrangement.  This 
section contains a few of the common flowers that can be found at 
your local florist.

Rose, a classic favorite and more commonly known as, tea rose, 
sweetheart rose or spray rose.  Nearly 120 varieties available 
- roses span the color spectrum in all shades of reds, pinks, 
purples, oranges, corals, peaches and whites. Tea roses open 3 to 
4 inches and stems can be 12 to 30 inches in length. While spray 
roses have several flowers on one stem.

Depending on the variety and the type of care, roses typically 
last 4 to 7 days.  Much care should be taken when placing the 
stems into a vase. Foliage above the water line should be removed 
to reduce the chance of bacteria. Re-cut stems every two to three 

Lily-commonly known as-lily, Asiatic lily, and Oriental lily. 
Flowers are trumpet-shaped and grow 6-inch in diameter. Stems 
have been known to reach 3 feet in length and carry four to eight 
blossoms. Colors include: white, yellow, pink, red and orange.

According to the National Animal Poison Control Center, lilies 
can cause serious problem for cats. It is recommended that you 
keep lilies out of the reach of your pet.

Tulip-known only as-tulip, a single flower with six petals. 
Flower variations include lily-flowering types, double flowers, 
fringed petals and ruffled parrot varieties. Colors: white, 
yellow, pink, peach, orange, red, lavender, purple and bi-colors.

Orchid-common name-orchid, cymbidium, dendrobium, oncidium, 
cattleya and phalaenopsis, which grow in a variety of sizes and 
shapes. Cymbidiums are the largest. There are over 17,000 species 
world wide.

Determining which of the most popular flowers is right for your 
significant other, a kitchen display or by your bedside; is a 
matter of personal preference.

Wild Flowers

Wild flower gardens are growing in popularity as the world learns 
from gardening experts that wild flowers are not merely a weed. 
Wildlife like birds and caterpillars are attracted to miniature 
countryside wild flower gardens. Truly-there are benefits to 
growing a wild flower garden.

Popular wild flowers include: honeysuckle, foxglove, red campion, 
lesser celandine, herb Robert and forget-me-not. In some areas of 
the world, up rooting wild flowers is illegal. Some think of this 
as removing the natural beauty of their countryside.
