White Flowers

 

As a symbol of purity and perfection, white flowers, along with various off-white and cream shades, have long been associated with weddings and christenings. Brides traditionally wear white to symbolise their innocence and the clean white flowers can make a dramatic statement when arranged together. One of the most recognisable of the white flowers is the lily, which is also a common choice for funeral and sympathy flowers. They are also popular in spring bouquets as they represent the clean and fresh side of nature. White flowers by botanical name and common name:
