* Episode 13 of ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' is centered around one. First it's {{discussed|trope}} when Saikawa gives Kanna a Shepherd's Purse[[note]]Capsella bursa-pastoris[[/note]] after finding out that it means "I offer you my all". After [[spoiler:Tohru is abducted by her father]], the camera shows the flower many times. It is finally echoed by Tohru after the FinalBattle, where she tells Kobayashi she can have her all.

* Thanks to [[http://demisexualmerrill.tumblr.com/post/145668425096 a tumblr prompt]], there are a surprising number of fanfics on Archiveofourown 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). One artist even drew what [[http://nixhil.tumblr.com/post/145903185509/flower-shop-au such a bouquet]] might look like.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', Zelda is associated with an in-game flower called the "Silent Princess", a rare and beautiful flower that only grows out in the wild despite attempts to domesticate it, much like [[spoiler: Zelda's powers are not able to flourish in her restricted life]].

* ''RuleOfRose''. [[ShapedLikeItself Three guesses what flower makes the motif.]] Though perhaps surprisingly, the motif is used quite sparingly, and it's a quite shock when it turns up in the big twist of the final chapter.

* ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'':
** [[WordOfGod Kodaka]] [[https://www.reddit.com/r/danganronpa/comments/4si1qw/kodakas_new_tweet_about_dr3_future_arc_ending/ has tweeted]] that the flower in the ending song for ''Side:Future'' is a gerbera. He specifically mentions that gerberas symbolize hope in the language of flowers and encourages the audience to keep that in mind, which goes along with the franchise's theme of holding onto hope even in dark times.
** A flashback in ''Side:Future'' Episode 3 shows Izuru staring at a vase of flowers he left on a desk. One of the flowers is a white daisy, which symbolizes "loyal love", and the other is a marigold, which symbolizes "despair". Appropriate, considering [[spoiler:he was mourning Chiaki, who has been dead for several years now.]]

* ''WeissKreuz'' dabbles with flower motifs and ''hanakotoba''; the four HitmanWithAHeart protagonists work as florists as a cover job and are each associated with a particular flower, and they also use ''hanakotoba'' as a code language, allowing for an OutOfCharacterAlert plot twist in the ''Verbrechen ~ Strafe'' OVA. Aya's real name, Ran, means "orchid," an association played upon in both the "Ranjatai" short story and the ''Dramatic Precious'' RadioDrama, and both Kritiker's Aoba Center team and La Mort use FloralThemeNaming.
