Flower, Leaf, Cacti and Herb Puns for Gift Giving

If you've followed my blog for awhile, you know that I love to give creative gifts and parties with puns.  AH (Awesome Husband) introduced me to the power of a pun when we were first dating. Over the years they have grown on me and now almost 25 years later, I can't seem to get them out of my system. 
Recently, my mom asked me for some flower puns to put with a floral birthday bouquet she was giving a friend.  Once I got started,  I couldn't stop!  So now I have quite a list to share with you... over 60 puns!

Flower puns

Use these when you're giving flowers or a floral gift to someone. Use a pun or two to make a card. Maybe you'll find yourself hosting a flower or garden party and you need lots of puns everywhere?
Let me know how you use them.

**As I create more printables, I'll add the links to this post.
