The fourth of October is World Pet Day. Therefor we did some research about how flora and fauna are connected. We looked for reasons to have a pet in your shop, we found flowers and plants named after animals and we found out which flowers and plants can be eaten by animals. We don’t have an explanation for it. But it strikes us that many florists, seem to be animal lovers. Maybe it is the love of nature? Or maybe florists are people who value relationships and love.
Which flowers and plants have animal names?
There are lots of flowers and plants with animal names. In Dutch at least. This is a selection of some Dutch and English flowers and plants with animal names.
