Ranging from pale lilac to deep indigo, purple flowers symbolise balance and loyalty and can look visually striking in any flower arrangement. It is also a colour that celebrates accomplishment or achievement and therefore is a wonderful gift for someone who has realised an ambition or achieved something amazing recently.
You can find purple flowers in a variety of flower species; from tulip and sweet pea, to lisianthus and delphinium. Purple is also a favourite colour of children and so would make an ideal present for a new baby or a young one’s birthday.
