Have you ever wondered what the meaning behind certain flowers? I have always loved looking at birth flowers, the flowers associated to each month. Each month has its own birthstone, flower, and just about anything else. Here we’ll go over each month and what the flowers symbolizes.


The flower of January is the carnation. Depending of color, the meaning of a carnation can vary. For instance, White suggests pure love. While light red means admiration and dark red means deep love and affection. While purple implies capriciousness, pink represent a mother’s undying love.


February flower is the violet, which signifies humility, faithfulness, loyalty, and modesty.


Daffodil is the flower for March, and represents friendship, joy, and sunshine.


April’s flower is the daisy. The daisy conveys innocence and purity. Also, they can mean true love.


The May birth flower is the lily of the valley. This flower signifies sweetness, humility, and virture.


Roses belong to the month of June. Likewise, they carry a variety of meanings depending on the color. A pink rose means perfect happiness, while a red rose means “I love you.” A white rose signifies innocence, purity, and new beginnings. A yellow rose conveys friendship.


The July flower is the larkspur. Larkspur is symbolic of a beautiful spirit, and swiftness. Furthermore, it also symbolizes fickleness and levity.
