So I've been doing research on the Hanakotoba or language of flowers in japan and articles have told me its losing popularity/ a lost art used now. I was wondering, what is meant by this exactly? Does it mean flowers don't have meanings in japan or the idea of flowers having meaning isn't widespread? I ask cuz it seems that cherry blossoms have symbolism and I know red carnations are given on mothers day, which shows flowers have meaning. Or does it mean the traditional/native meaning of flowers is not common?
