3 Ways to Say “You’re Beautiful” with Flowers

In the language of flowers, different blooms convey different messages from giver to receiver. To plants, however, flowers mean just one thing- sex. Long before the first flowers unfurled their tantalizing petals, plants had evolved a number of ways to spread their DNA around the planet, such as spores that could be carried on the wind or via water. These methods had drawbacks, the largest of which being the lack of diversity that comes from not being able to cast ones' seed far and wide, yet specifically targeted, amongst a wide variety of potential lovers. Flowering plants did not emerge until the first fluttering pollinators found them as the ideal site for acquiring nectar and pollen and serving as the perfect hang-out for meeting potential mates. In exchange, plants that were rooted to the ground and potentially geographically isolated from others of its species could send a message of love (i.e. pollen rich with their own DNA) via the fuzzy backs and legs of these insects. This allowed their genes to travel across the meadows and fields to an awaiting bloom to receive this genetic gift, fertilize their ovules and develop into a tasty fruit rich with seeds carrying their combined traits to all future generations of this flower. Not much has changed in the last millennia. Flowers still mean, ahem...well- they are still a great way to tell someone that you appreciate their fine-looking DNA. Continue reading [...]
