Ann Jordan, coordinator of the "revolution" Symposium, sat down with the Boston Globe to discuss the upcoming event.
The symposium, which will be in Bean Town from July third through the eighth, will feature meetings, programming and testing for those who are interested in flower arranging. Students from floral design colleges and enthusiasts from as far away as Australia and Korea will participate in the seminar.
Jordan told the news source that part of the importance of flowers may stem from their significance during childhood. "I think it goes back to that very first gift ever given in life, picking flowers out of the yard and handing them to Mom."
Jordan even had a little advice for men on Valentine's Day. She suggested that men who don't want to give their counterparts a typical rose on the holiday could opt for tulips, which are still an elegant, traditional choice.
When asked what her favorite flower was, she told the source that she was fond of the rose, particularly those that are large, orange and fragrant.
Strong, pleasant fragrances such as those from pungent flowers may help reduce stress. According to research published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, inhaling a pleasant scent can help one relax.
