10 Flowers With Secret Meanings

Stock - Lasting Beauty

It's hard to imagine ever tiring of any flower -- especially stock. These stiff, columnar flowers give off a sharp perfume that just may make you sigh with pleasure.

Delicious both to the eyes and nose, stock comes in shades of white, red or purple. This flower connotes lasting beauty. Give it to convey bonds of affection and promptness or to say "you'll always be beautiful to me." Stock grows approximately 12 to 30 inches tall and is often used as filler in informal arrangements to add structure and cohesion. Also, its rigid shape makes it a great candidate for lining in rows in a formal flower bed.
