Discover the secret meaning of flowers and their hidden language.

For centuries, artists and lovers have used the secret language of flowers, or floriography, to discreetly send overt messages of their desires and emotions. A simple flower could reveal a variety of hidden meanings, from a flirtatious "I like you" to a serious declaration of everlasting love. For example:

- A sweet pea reported a friendly "I'm thinking of you"
- A lavender rose screamed "Love at first sight"
- Geraniums signified "Friendship"
- Hibiscus wished "Peace and happiness"

Organised by both scientific and common names, each species contains fascinating and forgotten symbolic flower meanings from ancient Greek and Roman times to today.
