Glory

 
These guys' name even includes the word "glory." (Source)

Flowers are pretty glorious in their own right—it's kind of what they're known for.

Otherwise, sadly, there won't be much glory in the floriculture business. Even the floral designers who get to tastefully arrange the flowers that growers grow don't get noticed much. 

Floriculture may seem like a glorified form of agriculture, but those working in the industry are probably the only ones thinking that—people generally aren't any more interested in the source of their flowers than they are the source of their vegetables.

So, in other words, the dumb flowers that do nothing more than what comes naturally to them get all the credit for all your hard work.
