A flower that has wilted, or is dying. Generally depicted as a limp, faded red rose drooping over the to the right on a dried-out, green stem, shedding a petal.
May be used to express such sad sentiments as heartbreak, though sometimes with a sense of irony. Sometimes used to represent a rose or other flower, with positive connotations.
Not to be confused with 🌹 Rose.
WhatsApp's flower suggests a wilted 🌻 Sunflower; Twitter's a 🌷 Tulip, as Microsoft and Samsung's previously did. Facebook's flower was previously orange.
Wilted Flower was approved as part of Unicode 9.0 in 2016 and added to Emoji 3.0 in 2016.
