Event details

***Please note this program is being offered virtually via Zoom.***

What message would you send with red roses? Yellow tulips? During the Victorian era, floriography, or the language of flowers, was at its height of popularity. The species and color of flowers you sent someone could be sending quite the message. During this virtual program, an interpretive naturalist will give a brief history of floriography, share some meanings behind the most popular flowers and challenge you to put together a floral message of your own!
