Flowers have, for a long time, been the ideal gift to express celebration, condolence or appreciation, with their beauty and delicacy implying thoughtfulness and sincerity. What's more, the symbolism associated with specific flowers can often indicate a message more poignant than words alone - the perfect, heartfelt message.

But, with so many flowers to choose from, how can we be sure exactly which type of flower is right to give? Offering a flower associated with doomed love may get you disapproving looks at a wedding, whereas giving the right flower to show your gratitude to a friend is sure to be met with a smile.

This helpful infographic from The Greenhouse People shows us exactly which flower we should offer at any occasion, based on their symbolic meanings. From a gift to the parents of a newborn child to indicate innocence and youth, to the persuasions of secret love on Valentine's Day, and a show of admiration on Mother's Day, these blooms will always strike the right note.

The infographic also includes big life events, annual occasions, personal messages and anniversaries. Take it all in below and save it somewhere safe so you always have it to hand.
