The Meaning and Symbolism of Yellow Flowers

The Meaning and Symbolism of Yellow Flowers

In the language of flowers, the color yellow most commonly symbolizes friendship. This is the meaning ascribed to yellow roses in the Victorian Language of Flowers (floriography), but it has become the most common symbolic meaning associated with yellow flowers in general.

Yellow flowers can also sometimes represent feelings of success and pride, in addition to joy and cheerfulness, the feelings that the color yellow and friendship tend to invoke.

Particular yellow flowers also have their own particular meanings. For example, the yellow lotus represents spiritual ascension in Buddhism and other eastern spiritual practices.

Also, golden-colored marigolds are a symbol of death and are used to guide spirits to special altars of remembrance in Central and South American celebrations of Dia de los Muertos. So, yellow flowers in this part of the world are often associated with death.

Despite their happy hue, yellow chrysanthemums symbolize sorrow that arises as a result of neglected love. Conversely, yellow daffodils are a symbol of rebirth and represent new beginnings.

Whatever meaning you choose to ascribe to the yellow flowers in your garden or in your floral arrangements, you can always count on them adding a much-needed pop of vibrant color to brighten your day.

Begonias (Begonia)

Begonia is a genus containing more than 2,000 species of perennial flowering plants. With so many species, there are a variety of ornamental cultivars with attractive foliage and showy flowers that bloom in several colors, including yellow.

Begonias are only winter hardy in zones 9 and 10. In zones 2 through 8, however, they can be grown as annuals in the summer or enjoyed perennially if you have a warm, sheltered location for overwintering them.

These beautiful yellow flowers are also richly symbolic of hope, friendship, and kindness.


4. Sunflower (Helianthus)

In hardiness zones 8 through 11, lantanas are best grown in containers and other controlled garden locations, as they spread easily, are difficult to exterminate, and can become invasive.
