The Language of Flowers is a book published in 1884 by Kate Greenaway. The book is a Victorian-era guide to the symbolic meaning of various flowers and plants. The book explores the meanings associated with different flowers, such as roses for love, lilies for purity, and violets for modesty. Each flower is accompanied by an illustration, and the book also includes poetry and verses to further convey the meanings of the flowers. The book was popular in the late 19th century and helped to popularize the Victorian practice of using flowers to convey hidden messages.

The language of flowers is the poetry of nature.
