Pansy Flower Color Meanings
Pansies are a rare flower because they are available in a wide variety of blues along with many other colors. Traditional meanings of flower colors also hold true for pansies (red and violet mean passion, yellow means having a bright disposition or happiness, blue equals calmness and trustworthiness, pink denotes innocence, orange is a welcoming warm color, but the color white means lets take a chance. So, if you were to offer a bouquet of white pansies edged in violet you could secretly be saying let’s take a chance (white) on my passionate feeling towards you (red portion of violet) because I trust (blue portion of violet) you with my feelings. Who knew sending a bouquet of flowers could mean so much?
Pansy colors are infinite in either tri-color, solids or bi-colors. Some varieties are in beautiful pastel shades of apricot, peach and shell pink denoting a gentle tenderness towards another person. Blue is generally an uncommon color in flowers except pansies, which have pastel shades of blue, violet blues, dark blues and true blues. Color meaning in pansies can be very simple or complex. Other colors in pansies include burgundy, deep orange, copper, purple, light purple, black, white and subtle variations of these colors.
Meaningful Botanical Characteristics of the Pansy Flower
Pansy flowers have been used in herbal and Chinese medicine for centuries. All parts of the plant are edible and are a good source of nutrients. Pansy has been used to break down the density of tumors believed to prevent them from turning cancerous. Pansies were used in ancient Athens to take the heat out of an angry heart. This occurs because of the mildly sedative qualities of pansy. Pliny, a Roman had written that pansy could ease headaches and their accompanying dizziness. This was true because one of the active ingredients in pansy is salicylic acid, the same main ingredient in modern day aspirin. Pansy also contains saponins which are compounds found in plants that have expectorant (mucus clearing properties) and anti-inflammatory properties. They are commonly used for upper respiratory infections.
