Patron Saint of Florists and Gardeners, also Brides and Newlyweds
Martyr from Cappodacia. On her way to execution an onlooker named Theophilus jeered: "Come on then, send us some fruit and flowers from this Heaven of yours."Immediately beside him appeared a cherubic child with a basket of fruit and roses.
We imagine his reaction was something like: 'Holy shit!' A possible conversion there, and she is now the Patron of Florists.
