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.

* A somewhat strange example: in The movie ''Joe's Apartment'', 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.

* 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.

* Done somewhat unintentionally in the ''{{Belgariad}}''. Garion's cousin Adara asks him to make a bush bloom to prove his magic. He refuses because doing so would kill the bush, but takes a twig and creates a flower just for her. The two go back home, leaving the flower forgotten. And many years later, they find it has spread throughout the area, and moreover, has powerful curative properties.
