Symbolism

Unfortunately, little is known about the symbolism of the Limonium as a flower. However, there are several stories about her leaves: they would have a medicinal effect that help with coagulation to stop bleeding. The petals are more for the sweet look. Therefore, for us, she is a grateful friend: strong, helpful and sweet.

 

Origin

You can find Limonium in the wild in the Mediterranean region. The name Limonium comes from Leimon (Greek) and means pasture. The plant grows mainly by the sea, so in a salty pasture. You can also find the flower under the name Statice or Sea Lavender.
