What Flowers Match Your Zodiac Sign
Giving flowers or plants is always a welcome touch. We can all appreciate the beauty of nature; we except them with gratitude and enjoy them for many days, weeks or even years to come.
Whether you are a believer in astrology, take it with a pinch of salt or are on the fence, it is always good to know what flora and fauna your recipient may be drawn to.
Every zodiac sign rules its own set of characteristics and this is true for plants and flowers, too, but because each zodiac sign represents particular energy or style, certain signs will be drawn to different types of plants.
We have composed a short guide to help you make the right choice next time you are giving someone special a bouquet of flowers.
