In my sprite lore, flowerkin wood sprites are responsible for the popular artistic depiction of fairies wearing flower petals and such.

For example, here is a wood sprite character that I have developed who would be considered very flowerkin:


This little lady has yet to show up in any of my stories, but she will (someday… when I get around to it).
