Birth Month Flowers


I was checking out an article on-line and found that each month has a “birth flower”.  And what that birth flower says about you is interesting..see these fun ideas below.

January The carnation is one of January’s flowers. The color of the carnation is said to determine the meaning of the individual carnation flower. White carnations are associated with purity, love, and luck. Pink carnations are a symbol of femininity and motherly love.

February The iris represents enduring faith and wisdom. Another flower associated with February is the violet. Violets are popular, partly due to their heart-shaped petals. 

March Daffodils are an ideal birth flower due to their association with beginnings. In some cultures, Daffodil symbolizes rebirth. What a perfect flower to usher in spring.

April The daisy, more than any other flower, is associated with childhood and innocence.

May Lilies represent virtue and sweetness.

June The ever-popular rose is the birth month flower for June, which is the same month as National Rose Month. The colors of the rose lends to its meanings. Pink roses represent admiration and appreciation. Red roses symbolize passionate love. White is for purity, and yellow roses are for friendship.

July Delphinium is associated with boldness. Its blue color is perfect for Fourth of July celebrations.

August The beautiful gladiola symbolizes infatuation. The additional meanings of strength and integrity are also associated with Gladiolus. This bold flower derives its name from the Latin word for “sword.”

September Strength of body, mind, and spirit are linked to the aster. Some cultures have used the aster to recognize a fallen soldier’s bravery.

October Marigolds symbolize affection.

November Chrysanthemums mean sun and happiness. Upon blooming, the petals unfold in an orderly fashion, leading some cultures to associate the flower with perfection.

December A plant associated with December, as well as with winter in general, is the poinsettia. The poinsettia symbolizes cheer and joy.
