After all, flowers aren’t just for romance and have been given in the name of friendship for hundreds of years. In fact, in 19th century Victorian England, gifts of flowers were used to send coded messages to the recipient and express feelings which couldn’t be spoken aloud in Victorian society, including messages of love, hate, and friendship. These “talking bouquets” could even be worn as a fashion accessory to declare the message without saying a word.
Meaning of Friendship Flowers
One of the easiest ways to pick out friendship flowers is to choose a bouquet that features your friend’s favorite flower or favorite color. If they don’t have one, then perhaps reading our friendship color guide will help you decide. Meditating on the different meanings of friendship flowers and putting together the perfect friendship bouquet can help your thoughtful gift mean even more.
Yellow Friendship Flowers
Traditionally, yellow flowers represent friendship, trust, compassion, and respect -- a great message for a true friend! Yellow flowers are also warm and softly radiant, which can help renew ties of friendship during difficult times.
A yellow Rose bouquet is a popular choice for friends, as it has been used to symbolize joy, friendship, and the promise of a new beginning. The cheerfulness of yellow (and even orange Roses) can remind your friend of the joy you both share when spending time together.
Other gorgeous yellow friendship flowers include Daffodils, and Sunflower bouquets. Both are magnificently bright and happy blooms, which will surely let the other person know how thankful and happy you are to be friends with him or her.
If your friend loves the smell of lilies, the large lemon-colored blooms of our Serrano Lilies smell divine and make a special gift of friendship, and our Yellow Farmer’s Market Bouquet stands out a particularly robust, gorgeous gift.
Blue Friendship Flowers

If you and your friend have stuck through thick and thin with each other, celebrating with blue friendship flowers are most appropriate.
Some naturally blue overnight flowers to consider are blue Hydrangeas, Hyacinth, and Iris. Blue hyacinth and hydrangea mean “constancy of love,” and the iris symbolizes strength. All are a fitting gift for someone who has stood by you and supported you throughout the years.
