6. Hydrangea

Flowers brighten up our lives with their beauty and fragrance, but the power of a flower goes a lot deeper than just the surface appeal of a bloom. Humans are masters of symbolism, and it is natural that a flower serves a double purpose as a symbol too. Hydrangeas are common landscaping shrubs that dot suburbs and rural homesteads alike, and their meanings make them an attractive flower for adding to your garden.

What Does the Hydrangea Flower Mean?
The vigorously growing Hydrangea shrub symbolizes diverse meanings including:

  • Heartfelt and honest emotions of any kind
  • Gratitude and thanksgiving to someone else
  • Developing a deeper understanding between two people
  • Abundance and prosperity
  • the 4th wedding anniversary for a couple

7. Staghorn Fern

No symbolism - just a really cool plant! There are dozens of species of staghorn ferns, and until recently, they were quite rare. They are increasingly popular house plants.

Though you can find young staghorn ferns sold in pots, mature plants need to be mounted to a board or hung in a hanging basket. Why? Because, like air plants, staghorn ferns are epiphytic plants, which means that in they grow on other plants or trees in their natural growing environments. Selection may vary by location

8. Syndicate Home & Garden Moss Decor

The Bella Moss Collection features all-natural, sustainably-sourced, dried and preserved mosses that add a lush, natural accent to any creative project.

9. Freesia

Delicate freesias are best known for their dainty blooms and profuse citrus scent. While they are spring blooming in their native environment, they are always in season with florists. Because seven or more funnel-shaped blooms open along one side of the stem, they are easy to arrange to show off their beauty. The first freesias donned petals of white and yellow, but cultivation has produced freesias in a range of colors to suit any celebration. Freesias may be either single of double blooms.

What Does the Freesia Flower Mean?
The beautiful freesia has several related meanings. Freesia blooms typically mean:

  • Innocence

  • Trust
