Browse the latest bouquets in our collection below

What a lot of people associate with for their birthdays is the zodiac sign. Fewer people are aware of their birthday flower. In this article, we’re going to look at the 12 months and the different flowers that are assigned to each month.

Birthday month flowers and their meaning

In the past before the invention of calls, emails, and texts, people used to communicate through the language of flowers. This is what is referred to as floriography. Up until today, people still send flowers as a way of communicating. Each birthday month has a unique flower representing it. Some have more than one flower and the reason behind this is yet to be uncovered. Keep reading to find out more about what flower to get someone for their birthday.

January – Carnation and Snow Drop

The most popular flower for January is the carnation. Carnations are some of the flowers that can bloom in the cold weather as long as the temperatures remain just above freezing. It takes a distinctly strong bloom to blossom in the cold winter months. Carnations are a bright spot in this gloomy month. Carnations are also known as the gillyflower. These simple blooms are used to symbolize admiration, pure love, and distinction.

Snowdrops are another January flower that represents hope, beauty, and rebirth. These too bloom in the cold winter months

February – Violet and Primrose

A lot of people associate red roses with Valentine’s Day. Spice up this month of love with violets. This purple-hued birth flower represents modesty, loyalty, virtue, and faithfulness.

If violets aren’t your thing, you can check out primroses. Gift these to someone that you cannot picture your life without. This pale-yellow perennial is edible so you can use it to add a pop of colour to the birthday treats such as cupcakes. The primrose is a symbol of young love so they’re perfect for your lover.

Remember that irises are also mentioned as a February birth flower.

March – Daffodil and Jonquil

The daffodil is all too appropriate for the month of March thanks to its cheerful yellow colour. What better way is there to represent the first month of spring? These little buds of sunshine represent unparalleled love and serve as a reminder that the sun is always shining when you have your loved ones in your life.

Jonquil is a variety of daffodils. These flowers vary in colour and vary in colour ranging from white, orange, and pale yellow. They’re more specific to their birth month and are interpreted as “unequal love.”

April – Daisy and Sweet Pea

The daisy is a symbol of purity, loyal love, and innocence. In old English, they’re known as “day’s eye” because their petals close around the yellow centre at night and reopen during the day. They’re recognized as the flower that says “I’ll never tell.” This makes them the perfect gift for your confidant as they represent undying love

The sweet pea is another April flower. It represents blissful pleasure. These flowers are known for their sweet fragrance and are a great way to make places smell like spring.

May – Lily of the Valley and Hawthorn

May birth flowers are really spectacular. Lily of the valley blossoms are white and are often arranged with lush greenery to contrast the wildflower-like composition. This flower is a symbol of sweetness, humility, a “return to happiness”, and motherhood. These are especially fitting for mothers on their birthdays.

The hawthorn promises hope and “supreme happiness” for the recipient.

June – Rose and Honeysuckle

As the summer begins, no bloom better signifies the beauty and sweetness of the new season than the rose. Roses are available in a rainbow of colours and there are more than 100 different types of roses. These flowers are a symbol of devotion and love. Other different colours of roses carry their own meaning ranging from purity to friendship for the white and yellow roses respectively.

Honeysuckle flowers attract butterflies. These are the perfect gift for people who enjoy colourful critters.

July – Water Lily and Larkspur

The water lily is a symbol of purity and majesty. These unique lotus-like flowers are a symbol of rebirth.

If your first love was born in July, the larkspur would make a great gift. This flower shows strong bonds of love. Larkspurs come in a wide range of vibrant colours such as white, indigo, purple, and pink. Each colour has its own meaning but generally, larkspurs are a symbol of love and positivity.

August – Gladiolus and Poppy

These August birth flowers are the gladiolus and poppy.

The gladiolus is at times referred to as the sword lily because of its long and skinny shape. It’s interpreted in a number of ways such as remembrance, calm, integrity, and infatuation. This bold bloom is a symbol of strength of character, sincerity, and remembrance. It is found in an assortment of colours ranging from red, pink, orange, yellow, purple, and white.

The poppy is well-known for its bright red colour and is a symbol of imagination and remembrance of those who lost their lives during WW1.

September – Aster and Morning Glory

The September birth flowers are all about spreading love. Asters are also known as starworts or frost flowers. These are a symbol of all-powerful love, affection, and wisdom. They are available in many different colours such as pink, white, red, lilac, and mauve.

The morning glory is also a symbol of unrequited love. The petals of these flowers open in the mornings to show off their beautiful star-like centres, and hence the name morning glory.

October – Marigold and Cosmos

Marigolds are seen as a sign of optimism and prosperity. With its golden blooms that match the colour of autumn leaves, it’s no surprise that the marigold is befitting for this fall month. These blooms are a symbol of fierce love, passion, and creativity. In addition to their beauty, these flowers have a long tradition where they’re used medicinally to heal inflammation and skin problems.

The cosmos indicates that you want the recipient to experience harmony and serenity. This flower is a symbol of peace and tranquillity. It’s available in bright colours like orange, pink, and purple.

These flowers are generally a symbol of loyalty and honesty although the meaning may vary depending on the specific colour.

December – Narcissus and Holly

The narcissus is a symbol of good wishes, hope, and wealth. These flowers convey that you want your loved ones to stay just the way they are. Narcissus are known for their trumpet-like centre.
