If you think of red roses then the likelihood is that you associate them as a symbol of love, but did you know that there are many more flowers with a meaning.  In Victorian times open flirting was not allowed and to attract someone's attention was somewhat difficult!  Using flowers however, was a way of getting your message across.

If you are planning a wedding then use Ivy as it means wedded love and fidelity!

Here are just a few:

Sunflowers means you admire that person

Gardenias are for a "secret love"

Lavender wishes the recipient good luck

Chrysanthemum for a wonderful friend

and the one I like most and probably most obvious, Mistletoe- kiss me!
