Meaning of Magnolia’s

Each flower has a meaning, mostly we pick flowers we just like to see, but they all have a different background. A Beautiful Bouquet says: “The magnolia is a striking flower because the blossoms are so large. Associated with nobility, perseverance, dignity and a love of nature, the magnolia tree is a symbol of magnificence because of its impressive height and enormous flowers. Named after the 17th century French botanist Pierre Magnolia, this flowering tree has more than 80 varieties including a striking yellow blossom, The Goldfinch, or the popular white blossom, Magnolia Grandiflora. The white magnolia flowers stand for purity and perfection, while the pink magnolia flowers symbolize youth and innocence together with joy. The green magnolias represent joy coupled with health and good fortune. The purple magnolias send out vibrations that support your wishes for alignment with your truth and physical wholeness.”
