Flowers often have a romantic meaning associated with them. The myrtle flower was considered sacred to the Greek goddess Aphrodite, who was the goddess of love. Because of this association, the meaning of myrtle is love. It is also the Hebrew symbol of marriage.
The myrtle flower is native to tropical regions. Myrtle grows as trees and shrubs with fragrant, evergreen leaves and large blossoms.
The myrtle blossoms were used in bridal garlands as far back as medieval times. The flowers symbolised the purity of the bride.
During the Victorian era, the meaning of myrtle was expanded. Myrtle came to symbolise duty, discipline and home as well as love and affection.
Superstitiously, when a single person has a dream about myrtle, the person will have many lovers and leave a legacy. If the person is married and dreams of myrtle, the person will have a second marriage.
