Bonnie Heather – An Arrangement With Heather, Chinaberries and Pittosporum – Week 12

The heather flower colour influences its meaning. Purple represents admiration and beauty and pink is good luck. White heather is rare and much like a 4 leaf clover in celtic mythology, white heather represents exceptional good luck and protection from danger.
