What Does the Cactus Flower Mean?

Symbolism of the Cactus Flower
The cactus flower symbolizes two opposite meanings in one package. In the Japanese tradition of Hanakotoba, giving the gift of a flower from a cactus is a clear way to indicate you’re sexually attracted towards someone due to its connection with lust. In contrast, many Western people view it as a symbol of chastity instead due to the spines. It’s up to you to decide which cactus flower meaning best fits your purposes. Other meanings include endurance, thriving despite challenges, sharing love and warmth with your child, and drawing inspiration from the emptiness of the desert.

Cactus Flower Color Meanings
These blooms each carry a different color meaning on top of the base symbolism of the flower. While the cactus isn’t a birth flower, the bright red variety is often used as a gift for birthdays anyways. The white and yellow flowers evoke strength and endurance instead, while the pink and orange varieties provide a youthful twist to the usual symbolism.
