Ambrosia flowers were well-known in both Victorian floral language and ancient Greek myth. Most species of Ambrosia are native to North America, including the most common ones.
Ambrosia is an entire genus of related plants, also commonly referred to as ragweeds. There are about 50 species in the genus, but this is only part of the large Asteraceae family.
Most ragweed plants have relatively small flowers but differ significantly in other botanical characteristics. Some are just a few inches tall or crawling on the floor, while others are tall and can reach 4 feet or more.
Some species of Ambrosia produce winged or burred seeds. The Ambrosia flower comes in various colors, including purple, pink, yellow, white, and many other fascinating colors.
While Ambrosia can lead to allergies and grow aggressively in several regions of the world, it is also a symbolic flower with a lot of meaning.
