Hi there all of you Garden of Eden Flower Shop (and chocolates and gifts) fans! We’d like to welcome you all to our latest Feature Flower Friday! Each week, we will be featuring a different type of flower, the meaning behind them and the reasons you would give or present them to someone This week, we’re covering the pansy flower. Enjoy! Pansies, a small flower, hails from a long line of European wildflowers, but had over time developed into a dazzling spectacle of colors and blended hues. However, while the sight of this flower may strike a chord with you, the real emotion is in the meaning behind the flower. A pansy can mean anything from loving thoughts, to remembrance, to free-thought, and consideration. In addition, the pansy is also seen as a symbol of love and admiration for another person, or someone who is deemed to be free from social constraints. While pansies generally come in a trifecta of colors and shades, there is some meaning behind the specific color of the flower. For example, a blue pansy represents trustworthiness, while pink stands for innocence. A red pansy means passion, and a white pansy invites an opportunity, or in other words, says "let's take a chance." Overall, you cannot go wrong when giving someone a pansy, as they can stand for a multitude of meanings that are sure to envelop what you truly want to say. Not only are pansies a great flower to give, but they are a great addition to any room in your home. To have a few pansies included in your next bouquet from us, just request it on the phone, and we would be more than happy to accommodate. Have a fantastic weekend, Garden of Eden fans!
