What was up with Oscar Wilde and green carnations? How can you tell someone you’ve got a Sapphic crush on them? Before there was 1-800-Flowers’s “say it with flowers” campaign, there were flower dictionaries that explained how to send messages to friends and lovers with flowers. While 19th century flower dictionaries focus on heteronormative romance, floriography—and sending coded messages—is hella queer. In this zine, we’ve included some famous historical flower meanings as well as invented some of our own for contemporary queer culture via art, literature, botany, and history.

Arrived way faster than expecting, it’s a beautiful book full of informative flower knowledge as well as touching queer stories about love and loving yourself I’m so happy I impulse bought it and it’s going to be a permanent fixture on my shelf

Ah!! I loved this so much and there are so many uses for it. I took forever to post my review only because I didn’t get a chance to read it until very recently. But seriously, the art is absolutely charming, I mean the very idea of this zine - I just had to have it. I’ll be using this if I ever get organized to plant a garden, for my witchcraft, and you know if I ever find myself a group of queer friends who appreciate plants this much I’ll be recommending this book and running around exchanging bouquets and such XD
