Flowers and blue skies

Language of Flowers

We bring the museum to you! Learn about one of the most enchanting customs of the 19th century — communicating through flowers instead of words. From the four-leaf clover to the red rose, each was used to communicate a specific thought or feeling. Find out what different flowers mean and how to communicate covertly using specimens from your backyard. Grades 7-12 and adult groups.
