Flowers are charming, unique, and have an exceptional quality of lifting our spirits. Many special women in history and today have the same quality, and since it’s Women’s History Month, Atlanta’s premier florist, Carither’s Flowers, are revealing some of the extraordinary women from today and from history and what their favorite flowers are.
Angelina Jolie – Orchid
Angelina Jolie is known for her exotic beauty and grace, so it makes sense her favorite flower is the fascinating and graceful orchid. A distinctive bloom with three petals, orchids come in almost every color under the sun (there are no naturally black orchids). Their petal shapes vary depending on the specific type of orchid, and their unrivaled beauty is still coveted by many collectors today. The orchid symbolizes refinement, mystery, and luxury – perfect traits embodied by Angelina.
Jackie Kennedy Onassis – Blue Cornflower and White Peony
Jackie Kennedy Onassis was known for her sophisticated sense of style and grace. As First Lady, she made it a priority to make the White House grounds beautiful again by updating and tending to the gardens, which had long been neglected. The pure, graceful, and delicate white peony was one of Jackie’s favorite flower and symbolized wealth, prosperity, and good fortune. Jackie’s other favorite flower was the blue cornflower, which with its vibrant blue petals, radiates royalty and prestige. Amongst some of the cornflower’s different meanings are unity, hope, and devotion.
Jennifer Lopez – White Lilies and Roses
Famous singer, actor, and dancer, Jennifer Lopez’s favorite flowers are roses and white lilies. A majestic, fragrant blossom with a large pistil and six petals, the white lily is a beautiful, graceful flower cherished by many and used for a variety of different occasions. Symbolically, the white lily represents innocence, purity, majesty, and beauty. Additionally, the white lily is known to act as a protective charm when planted in your garden.
Lady Bird Johnson – Lavender Bluebell
Lady Bird Johnson loved wildflowers, and the lavender bluebell was her favorite. While First Lady, she was in charge of many projects for beautifying highways and cities with plants and flowers, which lead to the formation of the Highway Beautification Act. She also founded the National Wildlife Research Center in Houston in 1982. The Lavender Bluebell is a beautiful and vibrant flower that symbolizes gratitude, humility, undying love, and devotion.
Hot Pink Candy Roses
Michelle Obama – Hydrangeas and Pink Roses
