What are some flowers from France?

I want to send my wife flowers from France to remind her of our honeymoon in Paris. Any ideas?

France boasts many beautiful native flowers. To name a few, there are honeysuckles, cowslips, magnificent irises, deceptive "bee orchids", but most famous of all could arguably be the lavender. The flower compensates for its smaller, less gaudy appearance with the most beautiful and calming of scents.

Iris and Rosemary are native to France. In the French traditions, give flowers in odd numbers, but never 13. No lilies or chrysanthemum as they are used for funerals.


Answer by  Bobinski (1652)

Iris flowers grow in France as do Purple flowers, Gerbera flowers (have a good vase life), Rosemary Bush and the Stylized Lily (this is the national flower of France), the Caci Cours Saleya, Sunflowers, and Daffodils. In the spring wild flowers such as giant yellow gentians, pink orchids, indigo blue gentians grow in the Pyrenees.
