Floriography is the language of flowers. By assigning symbolic meanings to various flowers, floriography can be thought of as a cryptic way of communication through flowers.
Meaning has been attributed to flowers for centuries throughout Europe, Asia, and Africa. In Victorian society, gifts of specific flowers were used to send coded messages to express feelings not spoken aloud. Today you can find many websites and books explaining the various meanings associated with flowers and specific months.
We hope to share information about a flower for each month of the year. If you are interested in writing about a flower, pick your month and flower and email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The flower for December is poinsettia, and the article is written by Audrey Holt.
