Feng Shui Plants And Flowers
Feng Shui tips using Feng Shui plants Love Feng Shui, feng shui for love, romance and marriage!  How to use Feng Shui in marriage. In Feng Shui, plants and flowers are sometimes used to augment your ability to attract wealth, love, fame or better health. In contemporary Western Feng Shui, it is quite common to use different types of plants and flowers to attract certain qualities because the art has been mutated a bit to include a bit of pagan lore.
 
Technically, flower blossoms are not really used that much in Feng Shui. Greenery most certainly is and the more well trimmed it is the better. However, it must be well cultivated. Gardens that are full of dead Feng Shui plants or leaves are considered to be very unlucky. The same thing goes for dead wood or branches. These things symbolize confusion and poverty.
 
The favorite shape in traditional Asian Feng Shui is the spiral or the cone. This is the shape that is often used to create beautiful evergreen displays. As a Feng Shui tip, these spiral shapes are said to attract good Chi from the heavens and kind of funnel it down for humans to enjoy.



 
Flowers are not really used at all and, in fact, are seen as obstacles to prosperity. Flowers, in the traditional Japanese and Chinese Feng Shui, are actually seen as a form of clutter. Flowers that are multicolored, such as pansies, are considered to be particularly unfortunate as are bright white flowers. White flowers symbolize death.
 
The most fortunate Feng Shui plants are red ones, with geraniums being a favorite. However, they are not considered beneficial if there are too many of them. They must be placed in the greenery in a way that it is artful and uncluttered looking. In the fall, red chrysanthemums can also bring good fortune and money.
 
An exception among Feng Shui plants and flowers are peonies, specifically in pink. Peonies only bloom for about ten days in June and they are a powerful symbol of love. A peony bush that blossoms is said to attract a soul mate. Pink peonies are best as they symbolize the blush of love. White peonies are not as efficient when it comes to attracting a soul mate.
 
In revisionist contemporary Feng Shui, it is acceptable to use plants and flowers in the garden. One Feng Shui tip is that bright red flowers can be used to attract love and fame and can be used in the South and Southwestern sectors of the garden. Yellow flowers can be planted in the east and west to enhance friendships. Blue or violet flowers can be planted in the north and northern corners to augment your career successes and also attract wisdom into your life. In the center of the garden should be orange or yellow flowers.
 
Fruit trees are an especially important part of Feng Shui gardening. Among Feng Shui plants, fruit trees symbolize good health, love and thriving family relationships. Cherry blossoms in particular are an important symbol of love in the Asian culture. This is because some types of cherry trees even grow blossoms in the snow.

I think that it has something to do with you being inspired to do whatever you like. Naturally when you have a clean place to work then you will be more productive compared to anyone working on an unclean place. Of course, there are some people who can work no matter what is the condition of their environment but I think that this people would have become rich if only they are working on a better place.

Kara, I also love white flowers and really want to add them to my new garden. Its just scary to hear that they could mean bad things. I think I will just go with what Aries says, I would believe that it only brings good things and hope that would be true for me.

I love white flowers...I think that they are beautiful...honestly I love so many different types of flowers. I didn't know that they are considered clutter. I personally believe that flowers make people happier...having flowers in a room seem to brighten the room. I absolutely love white roses or orchids, those are gorgeous.

I guess it just depends on what you believe. If you believe in Feng Shui, then it will be true for you. If you believe in conventional meanings, then it will be true for you. If you believe in both, then it's up to you to decide.

Excellent article. I knew that Feng - Shui had some pretty interesting rules about plants, and, as I'm trying to build a nice garden, this article eases my mind on certain aspects of it all. What about the conventional flower meaning, does it contradict Feng Shui?

I had heard that white flowers were considered inauspicious. I have some bougainvillea plants with white flowers that had been there long before I came on the scene. I wonder what havoc they are creating? I haven't noticed anything disastrous happening.

Great Article. I have been working really hard to create a beatiful garden in my new home. I really wasn't thinking about feng shui in the garden. I was really going to put some white flowers in the garden because I love them. After reading the article, I am not going to have on single white flower in my garden. Thanks.
