The origin of the flower language

They gave their single associations deep meaning and began to transfer them from generation to generation.

How the language of flowers has reached Europe

In Europe, in the first half of the 18th century, the language of flowers became famous, thanks to two people - Aubrey de la Mottreuil and Mary Worthley.

In the Victorian era, young men gave lilacs as a sign of their love, and proud girls decorated themselves with hydrangeas expressing their coldness and indifference.
