What Your Favorite Flower Really Says About Your Personality

Did you know that your favorite flower doesn't just beautify its surroundings, but actually says a lot about your personality type? Our flower preferences come from a subconscious part of our brain and can reveal much about our personalities, lifestyles, and even our tastes.

An article in Town and Country spoke to Meredith Waga Perez, owner of Belle Fleur in New York City, about what our floral predilections say about us.

1. Rose = You love to travel.

Rose people love to travel and adventure because they enjoy different cultures and their own unique cultures. Every season is a rose season, so as a rose lover you're always in style, always fashionable and completely on point.

2. Peony = You're pretty, girly and sensitive.

You probably had an insanely beautiful wedding (people are still talking about it) and you try to have fresh flowers in your house as often as possible. You may wear pink or lavender a lot but that doesn't mean you're a pushover; you can be strong when you need to be.

3. Magnolia = You're strong and graceful.

Magnolias only bloom for the month of May each year and is the earliest known flowering plant. You're rare, graceful and may come from a powerful family. You have a tendency to take on the problems and the worries of others. Luckily, you're beautiful and strong, and nothing is too much for you to handle.

4. Lilac = You're sentimental and treasure antiques and vintage clothing.

Not unlike the lilac, you remain in an upright posture because you know that's the best way to stand out and make a lasting impression.

5. Hydrangea = You welcome change.

You're as colorful and bold as the flower you adore. Your mood changes with the seasons and your favorite season is summer, for that's when you truly come into your own and bloom. You embrace change and like to get out and do things. No one would ever call you a stick in the mud.

6. Carnation = You're low-key and stay out of the spotlight.

You don't like to be the center of attention for any reason. If people sing happy birthday to you in a restaurant, you want to die. You like to do quieter pursuits, and have a gift for learning and languages. You'll never appear in Girls Gone Wild.

7. Orchid = You're classy, sophisticated and mysterious.

8. Daisy = You're cheerful, upbeat and always optimistic.

You know that as good or bad as things are, they will always be better tomorrow. You love to make people laugh and you cherish your friendships. It's no wonder you're the life of every party.

9. Tulip = You give great advice.

You connect easily with people and are sweet, thoughtful and generous. You love to travel and easily adapt to change. You're the person to go to when someone needs great advice.
