What is florography or meaning of flowers
Florigraphy is a communication technique through the use of flowers. During the early nineteenth century, this art was used to communicate certain feelings and emotions through flowers that could not be freely expressed. The flowers in fact hide their intrinsic meaning which was studied and re-evaluated in some editions of the late nineteenth century called flower books. Flowers have always been donated and used to embellish important ceremonies such as weddings. In this context, the florist usually recommends as a symbol of love and passion roses, anthurium, red tulip and sunflower which symbolizes devotion. Even in the eastern world, flowers are a vehicle of communication, just think that in Japan and China, the arrival of spring is celebrated every year with the festival of the cherry blossom or Hanami. In these worlds so far away, the cherry tree symbolizes the transience of life, sexuality, love and feminine beauty.
The Anthurium plant belongs to the araceae family and originates from Columbia. The name deriving from the Greek anthos (flower) and oura (tail), probably alludes to the strange shape of this plant, which presents itself with a pointed heart leaf called a spathe, and an elongated central inflorescence called a spatice. There are about 200 Anthurium species but the best known are: anthurium andreanum, anthurium scherzerianum and anthurium crystallinum. The first two types have broad leaves with tones that vary from red, orange, white and pink. Anthurium crystallinum, on the other hand, is characterized by an emerald green flower with silver-white streaks. All species are grown in a greenhouse or in a pot and are ideal as indoor plants. The anthurium blooms from June to September, it prefers humid and sunny environments but it can be exposed to direct sunlight and air blows.
