James Bond has a signature flower, and it is a dark red carnation
Be like James Bond!
We have all seen it happen on a screen: a star receives roses after the show, and she knows who sent them without the need of a written word… Just because it’s his flower.
Signature Flowers are just that: a bloom that will represent you and convey your thoughts, alone or within any arrangement. They are the floral equivalent of a business card!

That sounds cool! How do I choose my Signature Flower?
The same way you would for a fragrance. If no special person has chosen it for you, just step into a store, look around, touch and sniff them.
But I don’t know much about flowers, like what they are supposed to mean
That’s absolutely ok, no one else really does these days. That’s a good thing! It means you can give them meaning yourself! Almost any flower is available to you; the only one off-limits is the red rose, which universally means “I love you”.
I like check-lists, they help a lot
Here are a few tips on how to choose your Signature Flower:
- Signature Flowers should be available all year-round: avoid Peonies, Daffodils, Sunflowers, and the like
- Be original! Your flower should represent you: Leucadendrons or Proteas will come accross as virile ; and Carnations will be seen as classic and reliable ; while Orchids are the promise of sensual delights…
- Roses are a staple, and are available in many different colours these days. Stay away from red and explore the possibilities of yellow, purple, green, white, or any blushed varieties
- Make sure to let know your local florist that this is your Signature Flower ; you’ll instantly become a VIP at their eyes!
- Call your florist ahead of time to make sure they will have them when you need them
