Flower Symbolism – Tea Tree and Genista – March 13, 2022

When I walked into Met Market yesterday, I couldn’t walk out with just the buttercups and calla lily, the leptospermum (tea tree) keeps calling to me. I find the magenta color of the flowers against the dark stem enticing and exciting. Interspersed with the white of the genista created a juxtaposition in contrast that I found incredibly attractive and pleasing to the eye. I had to have them!

Spiritual: The Old Testament references the Juniper Tree several times as the broom tree, a variety of Juniper that grows in Palestine. The broom tree was known to cleanse, purify and eliminate what is not true. source: Miracles

The branches and berries of the Juniper, a coniferous tree, have been used for medicinal and spiritual purposes since ancient times.

The Old Testament includes several references to the juniper tree including Psalms 120:4. This verse references burning a person with a false, deceitful tongue with the coals (perhaps burning branches/logs?) of the broom tree, an ancient name for a variety of juniper shrub that grows in Palestine. This passage can be looked at in several ways, one being that the juniper was used to cleanse, purify and eliminate that which is false and negative.

GENISTA (GENESTRA): flowers symbolize a free spirit.
