However, this beautiful little flower has some powerful symbolism surrounding it, making it the best flower to gift to someone that you haven’t heard of yet.Overall, the periwinkle flower makes for a great flower to give to a good friend, or a strong love—no in-between (you’ll see why in a minute). For friendship, the periwinkle flower can mean a sweet reminiscence of great memories, and the strength of a bond that will last for eternity; a true symbol of the phrase “the blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb.” In terms of love, the periwinkle flower means living in eternity with who you love, and reaching dreams and ambitions with that person. A white periwinkle flower can compound this meaning, since it exemplifies a long lasting love between two. The periwinkle flower carries with it some serious meanings, so be sure you know how you feel about the person you plan to gift it to.Whether you love the periwinkle for its sweet meaning or simple beauty, the professionals at the Garden of Eden Flower Shop are here to help. Just come on in, and see what we can do for you.Enjoy your weekend!
