Would anyone really cared to ask how these meanings are attributed in the first place? There are some 5000 (or 50000) species are flowers atleast I guess, if the above are meaningful flowers, the othes I guess are meaningless isnt it? just a thought :)

Good work. Better it could be, if you could indicate the Tamil names for those flowers that blossom in India.

Could you collect and publish the names of flowers that are used in our pujas, and flowers that are suitable for different Gods?

Regards,
saidevo
