Abecedaire de Flore ou langage des fleurs; Shoberl, The Language of Flowers; with illustrative poetry; Phillips, Floral Emblems;
Wirt, Flora's Dictionary.

Criteria for determining accurate, authentic flower sentiments:
1) Identify the primary sentiment for each flower and often a flower color through at least three resources,
using classic period references in combination with the best modern references and
2) Add a second or third sentiment only if it enhances the primary sentiment.
