Marigold: language of marigold flowers and plants


LANGUAGE AND MEANING OF FLOWERS AND PLANTS

CALENDULA

Calendula officinalis

(family

Asteraceae

)

The marigold, contrary to what one might expect, has a non-joyful meaning in the language of flowers.

Its origin is linked to an ancient Greek legend: Aphrodite, deeply saddened by the death of her lover Adonis, began to cry and as her tears touched the earth they turned into marigolds.


Venus and Adonis, Canova,
Villa La Grange, Geneva

Hence its meaning of the Marigold of pain, sorrow, pain of love.
