Sending flowers in the UK also has an interesting history as during the victorian era 1700’s Floriography was a popular fad. Floriography is the symbolic language of flowers. Each flower in an arrangement held a specific meaning.
Although not as elaborate as before, people still use flowers as a means to convey their sentiments when they feel that just words aren’t enough.

Flowers held different meanings throughout myths and stories. Ranging from new birth to death, and purity to desire. Generally, Flowers which grow from a sensitive bud to full bloom, represent the cycle of life and death. Flowers also symbolise fragility and the quick passage of life as they wilt and perish, day flowers represent this perfectly as they bloom only for one day.
Throughout history, different types of flowers have held different meanings varying from culture to culture.
Giving someone a flower can mean many things, varying from a romantic proposal to an apology depending on the type of flower and the way it’s presented. A red rose has become an almost universal symbol of romantic interest while a white rose suggests a platonic interest.
Blue Hyacinths represent peace and truth, they make dazzling bouquets which are perfect for an apology. White tulips and Lily of the valley are also great flowers for apologising. Peonies represent good fortune and success and hence make excellent congratulatory flowers. Carnations, Lilies, and Gladiolus often go hand in hand in sympathy bouquets.

Because each flower holds a different meaning some flowers can send negative signals. Yellow Carnations, Orange Lilies, Petunia and Black Roses hold negative meaning and should be avoided sending as gifts.
Although it is completely appropriate to gift friends flowers, they may cause confusion, by sending unintended signals. For example, sending red roses to a coworker or a friend might imply romantic feelings even if you simply intended to congratulate them. For platonic relationships, stick with lighter colours to avoid confusion. Yellow sunflowers and daisies make excellent platonic gifts. Alternatively sending indoor plants is a safer option If you don’t want any chance of sending out the wrong signal.
Gifting a man flowers is perfectly acceptable. Flowers are an ideal way to express friendship, love and respect and men deserve them too. Liking flowers does in no way diminish masculinity. Flowers are a blessing of nature and are for everyone to enjoy.
Although there is no hard and fast rule about what flowers to give to a man, there are some that are considered more masculine and might make more suitable gifts for males.
Stereotypes about certain colours are still entrenched in our society, so your male friends might not be too excited about pastel shades like pink or pale yellow. Sending darker colours like maroon, purple or deep blue, is a good rule of thumb when sending flowers to men.
Anthurium, Tulips, and Sunflowers with their larger size and solid structure make good gifts for men.
Flowers aren’t for every situation or relationship.
