Speedwell floriography - for travel
Floriography, also known as the language of flowers, is the practice of attributing meanings and symbolism to flowers, and has been recorded in traditional cultures around the world for thousands of years.
Speedwell, perhaps due to it’s name, has historically been considered a good luck charm for travellers, in Ireland it was sewn into clothes before a journey to protect against accidents. It’s scientific name Veronica chamaedrys alludes to the legendary Saint Veronica, who is said to have wiped the face of Jesus as he went to Calvary. The flowers supposedly resemble the markings left on the cloth with which she wiped Jesus’ face. In Germany, Speedwell is also known by the comical name 'Männertreu', or 'men's faithfulness' because it wilts so quickly after picking.
