BOOK EXCERPT:

“A flower is not a flower alone; a thousand thoughts invest it.” Daffodils signal new beginnings, daisies innocence. Lilacs mean the first emotions of love, periwinkles tender recollection. Early Victorians used flowers as a way to express their feelings—love or grief, jealousy or devotion. Now, modern-day romantics are enjoying a resurgence of this bygone custom, and this book will share the historical, literary, and cultural significance of flowers with a whole new generation. With lavish illustrations, a dual dictionary of flora and meanings, and suggestions for creating expressive arrangements, this keepsake is the perfect compendium for everyone who has ever given or received a bouquet. From the Hardcover edition.

Why shouldn't you give your spouse a yellow carnation or a pumpkin flower? The answers to these questions lie in the traditional meaning of plants. Even fruits & vegetables have meanings - potato for beneficence, raspberry for apology - & all of them are historically documented in this book.
