* In ''Fanfic/CellarSecrets'', we get marigolds, which usually represents grief and grief and despair over loss love, likewise, it's also associated with cruel treatment towards a loved one. Besides initially wanting to name [[spoiler: Ryuuko]] "Marigold", it was also mentioned that a photo of Soichiro and Ragyou had them dancing in a field of wildflowers, among them were marigolds, thus the significance of her name being that the flower reminding him of one of the happier moments of [[spoiler: their lives before their marriage collapsed]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': Leviathan, demon of {{Envy}}, has a yellow rose in her NiceHat and yellow roses tattooed along her back. Fittingly, in the language of the flowers, yellow roses mean jealousy.

* Thanks to [[http://demisexualmerrill.tumblr.com/post/145668425096 a tumblr prompt]], there are [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&work_search%5Bquery%5D=fuck+you+flowers a surprising number of fanfics]] based on the premise of a character walking into a flower shop and asking how to use the language of flowers to give someone a passive-agressive "Fuck you!". The solution tends to involve some combination of geraniums (for stupidity), foxglove (insincerity), meadowsweet (uselessness), yellow carnations (you have disappointed me), and orange lilies (hatred).

* Joyce Carol Oates' ''Literature/TheAccursed'' compares TheIngenue Annabel to a narcissus when she is first introduced. In the same chapter, she meets Axson Mayte while he is cutting narcissi in her family's garden, {{foreshadowing}} the fact that he will be her [[TheCorrupter corrupter]] [[spoiler:and cause her death]]. Axson himself is associated with the "angel trumpet" flower, which is highly poisonous, causing death or mental deterioration (and, incidentally, also looking like a lily, thus associating to death).
