PICK YOUR FAVORITE FLOWER TO REVEAL SECRET INFORMATION ABOUT YOURSELF!

Flowers are lovely. One brimming bouquet of blooms can transform any drab space into an environment that feels breezy and light, adding a tiny pinch of delight to anyone who gets an eyeful of their glory.

 

But have you ever wondered why you’re drawn to a particular kind of flower? There is a reason. Just like a gemstone that dangles from a necklace or ring or a dog breed that you love, we are attracted to blossoms that most closely resemble our own personalities.

 

Take Oscar Wilde, for instance: He always had a green carnation pinned to his lapel. A carnation’s natural color is purple-pink, and hues such as white, yellow, orange, red, and green were created by humans, rendering a green carnation “unnatural.” A green carnation symbolized Wilde’s love for the unique.

 

To find out what your favorite flower says about you, just take our simple quiz. I did, and I was surprised by how spot on it was…

1. Poppy 

 

If you are a fan of the bright, little poppy, like the flower, your personality pops. You’re vibrant, quirky, enthusiastic, and often the life of the party. You are also creative, love to learn new things, and have a talent for expressing your unique personality.

 

Due to the intoxicating allure of the edible poppy seed, many people find your personality magnetic and you’re hard to forget. In fact, poppies are used as a symbol of remembrance and are often displayed on memorials for fallen WWI soldiers.

 

Yet, try not to use people’s natural attraction to you against them, because like the deadly drug opium, which this flower does produce, it can kill their spirit.

 

 

2. Iris

 

Iris takes its name from the Greek word for “rainbow,” which is symbolic for optimism, a quality that is as valuable to you as a pot of gold. People who are attracted to irises are artistic and have wild imaginations, just like artist Vincent Van Gogh, who painted the radiant purple flower in his own unique style in many of his mot famous pieces.

 

Due the fact that the 5th-century French King Clovis changed the symbol on his banner from three toads to irises when he converted to Christianity also signifies that you may also have a very strong spiritual side, regardless of religious affiliation.

 

You do tend to get bored easily, however, which may clash with your desire to keep promises. Try your best to find start a routine, even if it’s as small as eating breakfast every morning or going for a walk every evening. It may surprise you that regularity helps tame your energy and aids you in keeping your word.

 

 

3. Tulip

 

Most people associate tulips with the Netherlands, but native strands have been found in North Africa, Greece, Turkey, Ukraine, and China, signifying that you have a great love for travel. Yet, although you seek change and adapt very well to it, you are rooted with a deep love for family and friends.

 

You are sweet, sensitive, thoughtful, and charitable, yet you do have a tendency to give into indulgence. In fact, during the Ottoman Empire, the tulip was seen as a symbol of over abundance. The era during which the Ottoman Empire was wealthiest is often called the Tulip era or Lale Devri in Turkish.

 

If you do find yourself going overboard, stop yourself and think about what you’re doing. You have a tendency to offer others sound advice, so take the time to do yourself the same favor.

 

 

4. Rose

 

Most people associate the rose with love and if you are attracted to this gorgeous flower, you are indeed passionate and your romantic relationships tend to run deep.

 

The rose is the national flower of England, so like the Motherland, you tend to appreciate tradition and can be a little old-fashioned. But, like Dolly Parton — who actually has a strain of rose with large, fragrant, double flowers named after her ­— you’re feminine and strive to bring out the best in others.

 

You do, however, have your thorns. You strive for excellence and seek perfection in your life, which is a good quality, but sometimes you expect the same from the others around you. Try to appreciate others for their flaws and you’ll soon find a new, more accepting part of yourself begin to blossom.

 

 

5. Lily

 

The ancient Greeks revered the lily so much that they believed it sprouted from the milk of Hera, the queen of the gods. Because of this, if you are attracted to lilies you are dignified, well respected, and people look to you as a mother figure. You’re compassionate, kind, and help care for others.

 

Yet, although you are motherly, you are certainly not matronly, and like the uniquely beautiful bloom, you have an exquisite sense of style.

 

Being the lily is the flower of a 30th wedding anniversary, you tend to take your relationships very seriously, although you do have a very fun and playful nature, which only helps the flickers of romance stay aflame.

 

 

6. Orchid

 

If you are drawn to orchids, you are not alone. Like you, it is classy and sophisticated, and is the most highly coveted of ornamental plants. People who like orchids are exotic and worldly, due to the 26,049 accepted species that currently dot the globe.

 

The delicate and graceful orchid sprouts from a solitary bulb, which means that you tend to be a mysterious loner. Yet, due to the tightly intertwined roots that engulf the plant, you do have a small circle of very close friends.

 

In the Victorian era, the orchid symbolized luxury signifying that appearances matter a lot to you. But you’re not shallow. Just like Queen Victoria, who ruled at the time, you are whip smart and never shy from saying exactly what’s on your mind.

 

 

7. Violet

 

In Greek and Roman mythology, the god Apollo relentlessly chased one of his sister Artemis’ nymphs. To protect the nymph from her brother, she changed her into a violet and because of this the violet is attributed to modesty and purity. If you are attracted to a violet, you are reserved, and appreciate simplicity, but it doesn’t mean that you don’t also have a strong wit.

 

Many dream experts believe that violets in a dream is a sign of good fortune, which means you also tend to have quite a few lucky streaks in your life.

 

In the John Everett Millais painting Ophelia, based on the tragic Shakespearean character, violets are found floating next to Ophelia’s dead body. Yet, do not fear that just because you are attracted to the flower, you will meet an early death. Instead this means, that like the character Ophelia, you tend to be misunderstood. Nobody knows the real you except for your close friends but being the private and true person that you are, you wouldn’t have it any other way.

8. Daisy

 

A daisy is an international sign of cheerfulness, and if you like this sweet, little flower, you’re probably all smiles. Being that the petite bloom was also a symbol of peace and love in the ’60s flower power era, you like to spread joy, tend to be laid back, are passionate about social rights, and have lots of friends. You also thoroughly enjoy a good party.

 

Yet, even if you do like a fun fiesta, you most likely won’t stay out too late. The medieval poet Geoffrey Chaucer called the daisy “eye of the day” due to the fact that the flower’s whole head closes at night and opens in the morning. Because of this, you tend to be a day person and have a great appreciation for outdoor activities and nature.

 

Daisy is also a symbol of innocence, and because of this, you also have an adventurous streak you use to shatter a childish image. This is a good thing and enriches your life, but try, little Daisy, not to go overboard.

9. Daffodil

 

In eastern cultures, the daffodil is considered a symbol of wealth and good fortune. But if you’re a fan of this sunny flower, you know that wealth and good fortune is a result of hard work and good karma. Because of this, you tend to be a caring and loving person. You are also ambitious, organized, and great a multitasking.

 

If you’re a fan of this bloom, you have an artistic side as well. A chain of daffodils that were blowing in the wind inspired the poem “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud” by William Wordsworth who wrote the poem with his sister and wife, who were all equally inspired creatively by the beauty of the flowers.

 

The daffodil is also a sign of beautiful eyes in Persian literature, and you’ve gotten your fair share of compliments. But due to this, you do have a tendency to be a little vain. The scientific name for daffodil is Narcissus, which stems from the Greek myth of Narcissus, who was turned into the flower of that name due to falling in love with his own image.

10. Sunflower

 

Just like this big, bold bloom that got its name from the Greek helios (sun) and anthos (flower), you are happy, warm, and approachable.

 

Your mere presence can light up a room. In fact, the natives of the Inca Empire worshipped a giant sunflower for its unique beauty and priestesses wore large sunflower disks made of gold on their garments.

 

You’re also comforting and help people when they’re in need. Sunflower seeds were a sacred food for Native American tribes living in the plains regions, who placed bowls of sunflower seeds on graves to sustain the dead in their after life journey.

 

Like the large sun, which this flower is named after, you also have a big personality that is bubbly and energetic, but may grate on those who are less so. If you encounter someone who doesn’t appreciate your brand of sunshine, try to hold your tongue and allow the radiance of your good vibes to do the talking instead. They’ll eventually come around.
