Floriography, also known as the language of flowers, is the practice of attributing meanings and symbolism to flowers and has been recorded in traditional cultures around the world for thousands of years.
The word allium is Latin for garlic and is a flowering plant belonging to the onion genus. In Hindu mythology, Sachi, the wife of Indra, king of the gods, sipped the nectar of immortality, but couldn’t digest it so he spat it to earth. From that nectar the allium flower blossomed. In Christian myth it is said to have blossomed from the devil’s footprints as he left the Garden of Eden.
