Everybody loves something for their birthday—at least I do.
Birthdays are important, and we should endeavour to make them as memorable as possible for our loved ones. Conventionally, the best way to achieve this is by being there for them and giving them something.
However, sometimes we get stranded on what would be an excellent present for them.
Think about flowers for a sec—they are cheap and readily available, yet they can convey so much and tremendously evoke emotions. They are more potent than words at times.
Incredible, right? Not so fast.
Flowers can represent birthdays in each month of the year, just like gemstones. So let’s look at each month’s birthday flower before you can order one using our flower delivery Pascoe Vale services on our website.
What Are the Birthday Flowers for Each Month?
Carnation is a fringe-petaled flower and often has a spicy fragrance which makes it popular in the floral industry. This beauty is the best flower present for those born in January. Additionally, carnation flowers come in different colours, and every colour has a unique meaning—for example:
- White symbolises pure love
- Yellow says, “wish you were mine.”
- Pink says, “You’re unforgettable.”
So, depending on the emotion you’ve got towards your loved one, choose the right blossom.
Alternatively, Snowdrop flowers are also excellent gifts for “January babies” to symbolise hope and beauty.
February: Iris and Violet
Irises and violets are the traditional flower gifts for February birthday gifts. They both symbolise loyalty and faithfulness—with a three upright-petaled iris symbolising courage, faith and wisdom.
Daffodils are March birth flowers because they’re a spring sign. Generally, they symbolise new birth, beginnings, joy and happiness. What’s more, Daffodils come in white and orange shades and are famous for lightening up the mood with their cheerful yellow hues.
April: Daisy and Sweet Pea
Cheerful beauties, such as Leucanthemum ‘Darling,’ are April birthday flowers. Traditionally, daisies are used to symbolise beauty, innocence, love or purity—however, few people use them to say, “I’ll never tell.”
Alternatively, you can choose sweet peas as an April birthday flower. These colourful and sweet-scented beauties come in different colours such as red, pink, blue, white and lavender.
May: Lily of the Valley
May birthdays are best commemorated with Lilies of the Valley. These small, white, bell-shaped flowers are usually arranged to form a one-sided spike with a unique and lovely scent. Besides, they’re synonymous with humility and contentment.
Roses are widely associated with romance and love. However, roses come in different colours, which convey specific emotions, such as:
- Red rose—love
- Yellow roses—friendship and care
- Pink roses—gentleness, gratitude, grace and joy
- White roses—purity, innocence and in some cases, chastity
- Purple roses—fascination or adoration
Larkspur is the July birthday flower and is synonymous with a strong bond of love. However, the symbolism can change depending on the colour—for example:
- Blue larkspur symbolises dignity and grace
- Pink larkspur symbolises contrariness
- White larkspur symbolises a happy nature
- Purple larkspur symbolises first love
Gladiolus are the best for August birthdays. This flower is widely used to symbolise honour and remembrance. However, it has other symbols, such as character, faithfulness, sincerity and integrity.
Aster is the birthday flower for September and symbolises a strong faith, powerful love and wisdom.
Marigolds with their rich fall colours symbolise everlasting love—making them October blooms. They’ve got a strong scent and are primarily used to express “I’m thinking of you” or sadness and sympathy.
Chrysanthemums are the November birthday flowers. In general, they symbolise happiness, love, longevity and joy. However, their meaning can vary with colours—for example:
- White-innocence and purity.
- Yellow-betrayal in love.
December: Narcissus, Holly and Poinsettia
Several flowers such as narcissus, hollies, and poinsettias are December birthday blooms. Poinsettias symbolise joy, hollies symbolise a desire for a happy home, while narcissus signifies modesty and faithfulness.
