Your Favorite Flower Might Say a Lot About Your Personality

If your favorite flower could talk, this is what it would say about you.

Published November 7, 2023

We're not saying you can tell everything about a person by their preferred bouquet feature. But your favorite flower can say quite a bit about you. If your floral ride or die is on the list, we may have nailed your personality with this roundup. 


Peonies are beloved for their voluminous blooms, delicate petals, and their balance between striking beauty and soft elegance. If you love the peony, your friends might call you sensitive in the best way — you feel deeply for yourself and others. You're a good listener, but you also like to be the center of attention when the moment is right. You aren't afraid to express yourself, but you generally want to be liked.


Roses come in various colors, sizes, and species, and they're a favorite flower for many. If you're ravished by a rose, you're probably passionate about many things in your life. From your work to your lovers, you like to dive deep into your emotions and make them known to the world. We're guessing you may also be a fan of poetry. 


The hydrangea is seen most often in white, pink, purple, and blue, and it's a flower that feels one-of-a-kind and ordinary all at once. If you're drawn to the clustered blooms of this shrub, you might often sway between feeling extroverted and introverted. You love being around your people and living your best life, but you also like to spend time alone connecting with your thoughts, nature, or your spiritual life.


The sunflower is bold, bright, and incredibly popular. If you claim this as your favorite flower, you might be quite assertive. You know what you believe and think and have no problem saying it out loud. You may not be as popular as your favorite flower, but you also have no problem being authentically yourself. 


Tulips, in all their bright colors, have bell-shaped blooms that stand tall in springtime. If you long for that first warm day just to see these lovely flowers, you might be a structured and organized person. In fact, you might just be the most organized person you know. Everything in your home has a place, you're always on time, and you never play Christmas music until Thanksgiving is officially over.


The daisy may be small, but it comes in various colors and holds a special place in many hearts. If you love daisies, you're likely a go-with-the-flow type of person. You take life as it comes, and you've never had a 5-year plan. You might have changed your major a few times, and your personal style gets an update every couple of years.


No other flower quite matches the orchid in shape or stunning quality. It's no surprise that this exotic floral is what many people would rather have on Valentine's Day instead of roses. As an orchid lover, you might be strong and determined in your ambitions and upfront about your thoughts. But you rarely share how you feel. You prefer to reserve your deepest feelings and personal struggles for the few people you truly trust.


Like the lily, you're trustworthy. Just as people can count on the striking white color or the tall, narrow stems of the lily, they can count on you. You never go back on your word, and you're always the first to call out someone who does. When you make a promise, you keep it at all costs.


Velvety pansies come in rich colors with that signature heart-shaped petal base. If you love these small and unique flowers, you might be overly critical of yourself at times. While you always see the best in others, you might see the worst in yourself. But, much like the pansy, you offer an unmatched beauty to the world. 


The dahlia is round and soft but sharp upon closer inspection. It's vibrant in color with simple leaves. If you're drawn to this unique flower, you probably notice things other people don't. You analyze everything and love to spend time appreciating nature or art. Chances are, you might be a bit of an artist yourself.


Carnations may be known best for their lovely scent, but people also appreciate their delicate essence and vibrant colors. Fans of this flower are fun-loving and fun to be around. You seek out enjoyment in every part of life, and others find joy in being with you. You draw in nearly everyone you meet, and you probably have more than one best friend. 


Gardenias smell amazing and stand alone in their exotic elegance because of their stark white petals and unique shape. If you love this flower, you probably love the finer things in life. You might even be a bit of a Martha Stewart. You're always the host, you appreciate gourmet food, and your home is always ahead of the trends while maintaining a timeless sophistication.


Daffodils are recognized by their yellow or white petals in that unmistakable trumpet shape. If you're a fan of the beloved bloom, you might be a bit competitive. You have a lot of ambition, and you're always determined to come out on top. When you try new things, you're often good at them. You might be a bit of a teacher's pet from time to time, but that's only because you're a certified gold-star collector.


It's hard not to love the fleur-de-lis shape and striking structure of the iris. If this flower has captured your affection, though, you might be careful in how quickly you give your heart away. You take relationships seriously, and you're slow to dive into new things. Whether it's a fresh relationship or a new hobby, you take your time and exercise caution around every corner. 

You Might Be the Exception

Your favorite flower may say something about your personality, but it doesn't say everything. You could be the exception to you favorite flower's general rule. The point is, you love your favorite flower for just being itself, and the people who love you probably feel the same way.
