May be used to adorn the altar, fresh-cut ones being preferred, although plants and artificial flowers are permitted. They are forbidden during Advent, excepting on the third (Gaudete) Sunday, and during Lent, excepting on the fourth (Lætare) Sunday. In art they are associated with Saint Fiacre, in symbolism of his garden, possibly also as garden of souls, and with Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, in commemoration of the miracle by which the food she was carrying to the poor was changed, in midwinter, to roses.

1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Little Flowers of Saint Francis
The name given to a classic collection of popular legends about the life of Saint Francis of Assisi and his early companions. Probably the translation of a Latin original, "Floretum," it cannot be traced to one author, being rather an embodiment of traditions. The second half has been attributed to Fra Ugolino Brunforte, provincial of the Friars Minor (died 1348). The four appendices were added by later compilers. The earliest known manuscript, preserved at Berlin, is dated 1390; first printed at Vicenza, 1476, it enjoyed a wide circulation in Italy, the vernacular version being reckoned among the masterpieces of Italian literature. There are several well-known English versions.
Easton's Bible Dictionary - Flowers
Very few species of flowers are mentioned in the Bible although they abounded in Palestine. It has been calculated that in Western Syria and Palestine from two thousand to two thousand five hundred plants are found, of which about five hundred probably are British wild-flowers. Their beauty is often alluded to (Song of Solomon 2:12 ; Matthew 6:28 ). They are referred to as affording an emblem of the transitory nature of human life (Job 14:2 ; Psalm 103:15 ; Isaiah 28:1 ; 40:6 ; James 1:10 ). Gardens containing flowers and fragrant herbs are spoken of (Song of Solomon 4:16 ; 6:2 ).
Holman Bible Dictionary - Flowers
Colorful blooms containing a plant's reproductive organs. Flowers grew abundantly during springtime in Palestine. Flowers grew mostly in open fields, since flower gardens as we now know them were not cultivated. See Garden . Flowers grew in crop fields and in groves of trees around houses. Numerous kinds of wild flowers could be found in the plains and mountainsof Palestine. The words “flower” or “flowers” refer to (1) colorful blossoms, (2) towering plants, (3) open flowers, and (4) flourishing flowers. In Palestine the warm spring temperatures joined with the winter rains to produce beautiful, blooming plants and flowers. (1) Almond blossoms (Genesis 43:11 ; Exodus 25:33-34 ; Exodus 37:19-20 ; Numbers 17:8 ; Ecclesiastes 12:5 ). This tree, a member of the rose family, had beautiful pink blossoms that the Israelites used as models for engravers to adorn the cups of the golden lampstand.
(2) Bulrush (Exodus 2:3 ; Job 8:11 ; Isaiah 18:2 ; Isaiah 35:7 ), sometimes is referred to as “flag,” “papyrus” (NIV), “reed” (NAS), or “rush” (NEB). This tall, slender reedlike plant grew along the banks of the Nile River and provided the earliest known material for making paper and covering the frames of boats (Isaiah 18:2 ).
(3) Calamus leaves (Exodus 30:23 ; Song of Song of Solomon 4:14 ; Isaiah 43:24 ; Jeremiah 6:20 ; Ezekiel 27:19 ). The leaves from this plant were a sweet-smelling cane or ginger grass. The leaves, when crushed, gave a much relished ginger smell. It was apparently imported from India for use in worship (Jeremiah 6:20 ). Several Hebrew expressions lie behind “calamus.” The basic Hebrew term qaneh means, “cane.” It is modified in Exodus 30:23 by the word for balsam, apparently referring to sweet cane or Cymbopogon . A similar plant may be meant by qaneh tob in Jeremiah 6:20 , to meaning either “good” or “perfumed.” Elsewhere, qaneh ooccurs without modification and may refer to different types of cane. For example, in 1 Kings 14:15 the giant reed Arundo donax may be meant. Compare Job 40:21 ; Isaiah 19:6 ; Isaiah 35:7 .
(4) Camphire flowers (sometimes referred to as Henna) (Song of Song of Solomon 1:14 ; Song of Song of Solomon 4:13 ; Song of Song of Solomon 7:11 —see REB). The camphire was a small plant or shrub that bore beautiful cream-colored flowers that hung in clusters like grapes and were highly scented. It was used for orange dye.
(5) Caperberry flowers (Ecclesiastes 12:5 ). The caperberry was a prickly shrub which produced lovely flowers and small, edible berries as it grew in rocks and walls. It was supposed to stimulate sexual desires and powers. KJV, NRSV, NIV, TEV translate the Hebrew term as “desire” in Ecclesiastes 12:5 , but REB and NAS follow recent Hebrew dictionaries in translating, “caperberry.”
(6) Cockle flowers (Job 31:40 ) were the purplish red flowers of a noxious weed called the “cockle” or “darnel” (Lolium tenulentumro ). This plant grew abundantly in Palestinian grain fields. Its Hebrew name is spelled like the Hebrew word for “stink” and thus is translated “stinkweed” by NAS.
(7) Crocus (Song of Song of Solomon 2:1 ; Isaiah 35:1 ) was a spring flowering herb with a long yellow floral tube tinged with purple specks or stripes. It is sometimes translated as rose. Technically, it was probably the asphodel (REB).
(8) Fitch (Isaiah 28:25-27 ) KJV calls this flower the “fitch,” but the better designation is probably the nutmeg flower. This flower was a member of the buttercup family and grew wildly in most Mediterranean lands. The plant was about two feet high and had bright blue flowers. The pods of the plant were used like pepper. Technically the plant is probably dill (NRSV, NAS, REB) or more precisely black cummin (Nigella sativaro ). NIV translates, “caraway.”
(9) Leek (Numbers 11:5 ), a member of the lily family, was a bulbous biennial plant with broad leaves. The bases of the leaves were eaten as food. The bulbs of this plant were used as seasoning. Israel relished the memory of leeks (Allium porrumro ) from Egypt.
(10) Lily (1Kings Numbers 7:19 ,Numbers 7:19,7:22 ,Numbers 7:22,7:26 ; 2 Chronicles 4:5 ; Song of Song of Solomon 2:1-2 ,Song of Song of Solomon 2:16 ; Song of Song of Solomon 5:13 ; Song of Song of Solomon 6:2-3 ; Song of Song of Solomon 7:2 ; Hosea 14:5 ). The term “lily” covered a wide range of flowers. The most common was Lilius candidum. The lily mentioned in Song of Song of Solomon 5:13 refers to a rare variety of lily that had a bloom similar to a glowing flame. The “lily of the valley” (Song of Song of Solomon 2:1-2 ,Song of Song of Solomon 2:16 ) is known as the Easter lily. The lily mentioned in Hosea 14:5 is more akin to an iris. The beautiful water lily or lotus was a favorite flower in Egypt and was used to decorate Solomon's Temple (1Kings 7:19,1Kings 7:22, 1 Kings 7:26 ; 2 Chronicles 4:5 ). The “lilies of the field” (Matthew 6:28 ; Luke 12:27 ) were probably numerous kinds of colorful spring flowers such as the crown anemone.
(11) Mandrake (Genesis 30:14-16 ; Song of Song of Solomon 7:13 ). The mandrake, a herb of the nightshade family, had a rosette of large leaves and mauve flowers during winter and fragrant and round yellow fruit during spring. The mandrake grew in fields and rough ground. It was considered to give sexual powers and probably can be identified as Atropa Mandragora , rooften used for medicine in ancient times.
(12) Mint (Matthew 23:23 ; Luke 11:42 ) was an aromatic plant with hairy leaves and dense white or pink flowers, probably jucande olens . Mint was used to flavor food. The Jews scattered it on the floors of houses and synagogues for its sweet smell.
(13) Myrtle branches (Nehemiah 8:15 ; Isaiah 41:19 ; Isaiah 55:13 ; Zechariah 1:8-11 ). Myrtle bushes (Myrtus communisro ), which grew on Palestinian hillsides, had fragrant evergreen leaves and scented white flowers. The flowers on the myrtle branches were used as perfumes.
(14) Pomegranate blossoms (Exodus 28:33 , Numbers 13:23 ; 1 Samuel 14:2 ; 1 Kings 7:18 ) from the pomegranate tree (Punica granatumro ) had dark green leaves with large orange-red blossoms. Decorators carved pomegranates on public buildings. The fruit symbolized fertility and was used to tan leather and for medicine.
(15) Rose (Song of Song of Solomon 2:1 ; Isaiah 35:1 ). Several varieties of roses could be found in Palestine. The rose was a member of the crocus family. Traditionally, what is considered a rose is not the flower mentioned in Scripture. The “rose” is more generally considered an asphodel. See Crocus above.
(16) Saffron (Song of Song of Solomon 4:14 ). Saffron (Curcuma longa or Crocus sativasro ) is a species of crocus. In ancient times the petals of the saffron flower were used to perfume banquet halls. The type meant in Song of Song of Solomon 4:14 may be an exotic plant imported from India.
Other Though not specifically mentioned by kind in the Bible, other varieties of flowers grew in Palestine. Appearing as early as January were the pink, white, and lilac blossoms of the cyclamen. Dominating many landscapes were the various shades of reds and pinks of the crown anemones, poppies, and mountain tulips. Some short-lived summer flowers were the yellow and white daisylike chrysanthemums.
Figurative Uses of “Flowers” The striking manner in which flowers burst into bloom for a few short weeks in spring and then faded into withered leaves was viewed as an illustration of the transient nature of human life (Job 14:2 ; Psalm 103:15 ; Isaiah 40:6 ; 1 Peter 1:24 ). The flowers of spring (Song of Song of Solomon 2:12 ) signify renewal. The “fading flower” of Isaiah 28:1 represented the downfall of God's disobedient people. The “lilies of the field” ( Matthew 6:28 ) grew unassumingly and without any outward signs of anxiety. If God takes care of the lilies, so God will take care of His children who need not worry uselessly. The phrase “flower of her age” (1 Corinthians 7:36 ) described a girl reaching womanhood. The rich pass away just as quickly as the period of time for blooming flowers passes away (James 1:10-11 ).

FLOWERS. 1. nizzân , only Song of Solomon 2:12 . Song of Solomon 2:2 . ziz , Isaiah 28:1 ; Isaiah 28:4 ; Isaiah 40:6 , Job 14:2 , ‘blossoms’ Numbers 17:8 .

Flowers are one of the attractive features of Palestine: they come in the early spring ( Song of Solomon 2:12 ), but fade all too soon, the brilliant display being a matter of but a few short weeks. Hence they are an appropriate symbol of the evanescence of human life ( Job 14:2 , Psalms 103:15 etc.). The ‘lilies of the field’ of Matthew 6:28 may have been a comprehensive term for the brilliant and many-coloured anemones, the irises, the gladioli, etc., which lend such enchantment to the hillsides in March and April.

Charles Spurgeon's Illustration Collection - Preaching: Fruit And Flowers
At Hampton Court Palace every one regards with wonder the enormous vine loaded with so vast a multitude of huge clusters: just outside the vine-house is as fine a specimen of the wistaria, and when it is in full bloom, the cluster-like masses of bloom, cause you to think it a flower-bearing vine, as the other is a fruit-bearing vine. Fit emblems these two famous trees of two ministries, both admired, but not equally to be prized; the ministry of oratory, luxuriant in metaphor and poetry, and the ministry of grace, abounding in sound teaching and soul saving-energy. Gay as are the flower-clusters of the wistaria, no one mistakes them for the luscious bunches of the grape; yet, there are many simpletons in spiritual things who mistake sound for sense, and seem to satisfy their hunger not on solid meat, but on the jingle of a musical dinner bell.

Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Flowers
FLOWERS.—Palestine has a flora of wonderful wealth and variety. The known species exceed three thousand, and even this large list is probably far from complete. But numbers alone convey no adequate idea of its varied nature. This little land contains within its narrow limits the most remarkable diversities of soil, surface, and climate. As is the land so is its flora, which at the one extreme, amid the heights of Lebanon, is Alpine in its character, and at the other extreme, in the gorge of the Dead Sea, tropical.
In the NT there are very few references to flowers, and these are of the most general character (James 1:10-11; 1 Peter 1:24). In the Gospels the only mention of them is in the words of our Lord, ‘Consider the lilies of the field’ (Matthew 6:23, Luke 12:27). It is noteworthy that it is to their beauty that Christ appeals; elsewhere in the NT flowers are the emblem of frailty and evanescence. But in spite of the comparative infrequency of Scripture allusions to them or praise of their beauty, the Jews were lovers of flowers. This is attested by the floral ornamentation on the woodwork of the oracle (1 Kings 6:18), the folding-doors (1 Kings 6:35), and the pillars of the temple (1 Kings 7:22), the brim of the molten sea (1 Kings 7:26), and the golden candlestick (Exodus 25:31; Exodus 25:33). From the Mishna we learn that at the Feast of Harvest (Exodus 23:16) the first crop of fruit offered at the altar was decked with flowers (Bikkurim, ii. 3).
Among the beautiful flowers of Palestine may be mentioned anemones, crocuses, cyclamens, gladioli, hyacinths, irises, poppies, roses, and tulips.

Bridgeway Bible Dictionary - Flowers
Very few flowers are named in the Bible. The most commonly mentioned are those of the lily family (Song of Song of Solomon 2:16; Song of Solomon 6:2; Hosea 14:5; Matthew 6:28). A kind of wild rose is also mentioned (Song of Song of Solomon 2:1; Isaiah 35:1). The flower of the mandrake plant had a strong smell that people believed could excite sexual passion (Genesis 30:14-16; Song of Song of Solomon 7:13).
People have always seen beauty in flowers, and flower patterns were prominent in the decorations of the tabernacle and the temple (Exodus 25:31-34; 1 Kings 6:18; 1 Kings 6:29-35; 1 Kings 7:26; 1 Kings 7:49). Although they are beautiful, flowers do not last long. Because of this the Bible sometimes refers to them as symbols of the brevity and impermanence of life (Job 14:2; Nahum 1:4; James 1:10-11; 1 Peter 1:24).
