* A somewhat strange example: in The movie ''Film/JoesApartment'', Lily is working to make a garden in a depressed neighborhood to make it a better place. The villains of the story make sure that the garden is destroyed. Joe likes Lily and wishes her to be happy and with the help of his cockroach friends and all of the rats, pigeons, etc. that the roaches can muster, Lily's garden is rebuilt.

* A negative version of this appears in ''Film/BlackNarcissus''. Sister Philippa plants the convent's vegetable garden with flowers instead - and it's a sign that the exotic environment has caused the nuns to lose their sanity slightly. The flowers also mean that there will be hardly any food for the next year.




to:

* In ''Literature/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe'' when [[spoiler: Aslan is resurrected]], he celebrates by leaping around the area. Wherever he lands, flowers spring up. It's the first sign of Jadis's reign officially coming to an end in Narnia.
* This is of course the objective of Mary Lennox in ''Literature/TheSecretGarden''. She finds her aunt's old garden, neglected and dead-looking after ten years, and sets about trying to restore it. [[spoiler: The sight of the garden restored to its former beauty, and his son walking again, is what brings her uncle out of his HeroicBSOD]].




to:

* ''{{Series/Charmed}}'':
** An episode featured a demon drinking from the Eternal Spring to become immortal - and therefore unkillable. So the sisters instead turn him into a tree in the Enchanted Forest.
** Overall this is the raison d'etre of the wood nymphs. Wherever they go, flowers sprout.
** Parodied in a flashback episode that reveals the sisters' BadassGrandma was actually GranolaGirl in the 60s. Her first vanquishing spell asks to make the demon's remains "good for the environment" - and he explodes into flower petals.

Creator/HenrikWergeland had flower motifs all over. One of his most visual examples come in the one-act farce ''Do not lie'', telling the story of two hecklers, and how the poet is handling them. His solution is to send in a flower-fairy, dumping ''an entire flower garden'' in their heads, with specific instruction on how the different flowers will work their magic on them.

---> '''Hecklers''': Help, we perish in flowers!
---> '''Florilla''': That is a poet´s way of revenging himself.

* In ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' Firion has the dream to fill the world with [[SomethingAboutARose wild roses]]. The wild rose itself is both a metaphor for people living freely from oppression of tyrants like his ArchEnemy TheEmperor as well as a throwback to the watchword of the [[LaResistance Rebel Army]] in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII''. Wishy washy hero of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' Cloud Strife who cannot find a reason to continue fighting finds strength in Firion's dream and it helps inspire him and later Terra to keep fighting.
