Victorian Flower Language

In the Victorian era, when words were too much -- or not enough -- flowers were given to convey messages of love, friendship, hope, and much more. Hundreds of varieties of flowers were gathered

on pillows, wall hangings, and more. As gifts for friends and loved ones, they're a unique and
beautiful way to show your appreciation.


Below, a cluster of honeysuckle blooms in radiant clusters carries a timeless sentiment of friendship.
