The tradition dates to the late 17th century, where the "language of flowers" was a practiced art. The idea was to communicate using flowers instead of any words at all. The art started in Sweden and spread throughout Europe, where a list of flowers and their meanings got widely distributed. Several famous authors published books on the art of flowers as well.
