Rose

Roses, the eternal symbols of love and beauty, have roots deeply embedded in Greek mythology. Legend whispers of their origin from Aphrodite’s tears, the goddess of love herself. Another tale narrates a poignant scene, where Aphrodite pricked her foot on a thorn dropped by her son, Cupid, causing the roses to bloom crimson from her blood. Yet, another narrative credits Chloris, a nymph turned goddess Flora, for fashioning the rose from her divine touch, transforming the remains of tragic heroes into these blooming masterpieces.

Green Hydrangea

Hydrangea

Japanese folklore paints a bittersweet tale for the hydrangea. A proud emperor, having neglected the woman he loved for matters of the state, sought her forgiveness by gifting her hydrangeas. The flower’s varied shades, from blues to pinks, became emblematic of changing emotions—from heartfelt apologies to bursts of pride. Today, the hydrangea serves as a reminder that emotions are fluid, and expressing remorse is a form of enduring love. Showcase your heartfelt emotions with our hydrangea bouquets by House of Flowers.

Sunflower

From Greek lore emerges a tale of unyielding love. Clytie, a water nymph, fell deeply in love with Helios, the sun god. Spurned and heartbroken, she sat on the ground, staring at him as he journeyed across the sky. Days turned into weeks, and her love never wavered. In her undying adoration, she transformed into a sunflower, her head forever following the sun’s path, embodying loyalty and unwavering love. Symbolizing loyalty and unwavering love, the sunflower’s story is one of dedication and passion. So turn towards the radiant beauty of House of Flowers sunflower collections.

Orchid

In ancient Greece, the orchid was cherished for its striking beauty and seen as a symbol of strength and endurance, its name derived from “Orkhis” due to the unique shape of its roots. In Chinese traditions, the orchid stands as a symbol of sophistication and refinement, frequently revered by scholars and esteemed personalities. Seamlessly blending its Greek roots with Asian connotations, the orchid has come to represent a harmonious dance of love, beauty, and resilience.

Lily

Lilies, elegant and pure, are believed to have sprouted from the milk of Hera, Zeus’s queen. As droplets of her milk fell to the earth, the magnificent lilies took root, symbolizing purity, renewal, and rebirth. Another folklore intertwines lilies with Juno, the Roman counterpart of Hera, where the flower emerged as she nursed her divine son, Hercules. With their regal bearing, lilies are eternal reminders of the divine and the innocence they encapsulate. Their regal and delicate nature makes lily arrangement a timeless gift.
