Everything You Need To Know About Your Birth Month Flower

Just like each month has its own gemstone, each month also has a special flower dedicated to it. Way before email, texting, DMs or even calls came about, people used flowers to communicate. The language of flowers – also known as floriography – was especially popular in the 18th and 19th century. Today, we may have more ways to communicate, but the messages told with each flower are as meaningful today as ever. Each birth month flower has a unique meaning and is sure to make the recipient feel extra special (and loved!)

Identify your birthday month with a beautiful bloom and get to know what the blossom means. It is interesting also to know the birth flower of your friends and family and what they represent. The information can inspire your gift for their next birthday as well!

Buy Carnations Birthday Bouquet, Purpink Flower Delivery

With a fascinating history of more than 2000 years, carnations are full of meaning and symbolism. With their gorgeously fluffy petals, these blooms have stood the test the time and are still a favourite flower for many occasions like weddings and birthdays.

Their light, sweet scent and huge range of colours make the carnation flower a delight for all the senses, and make a beautiful bouquet alone or when combined with other flowers. Generally, carnations symbolize devotion, love, distinction, and fascination. Each color of carnation symbolizes a different meaning though. You can learn more about carnations here.

February Birth Flower : Alstroemeria

Buy Alstroemeria Birthday Bouquet, Purpink Flower Delivery

It wouldn’t be cliché if you imagined roses, and specifically red roses, to be the birth flower of February, especially with their preference on Valentine’s Day. However, Violet, is the official birth flower of February. Violets are purple-hued blooms which symbolize modesty, faithfulness and virtue. Back in the Victorian age, a gift of violets was a declaration to always be true, and it still serves as a wonderful reminder of loyalty, thoughtfulness, and dependability.

Can you however find violets in Kenya? It’s not likely that we have these beautiful flowers all year round, and especially in February when most flower farms focus on growing the on demand red roses. We suggest the Purple Alstroemeria lily, which is very close in shape to the Violet, and blooms elegantly all year round in Kenya. The lily (also known as the Peruvian lily) is one of the most-loved and beautiful flowers to give and receive. Not only are their dramatic blooms a delight to have around the home, the meaning behind them is very powerful as well! A deeper meaning can be assigned to the alstroemeria lily based on its colour. So, if you’re looking for a flower to perfectly express your love for a friend or partner, we’ve got you covered.

The water lily flower is the birth flower for July. It has a mysterious demeanour, a unique lotus-like flower. You can find water lilies floating atop water giving a sense something less calming might be happening underneath. Isn’t it interesting that this flower only lasts about four days until it settles under the water?The water lily symbolises purity and rebirth.

 It may not be easy to pluck out a water lily (because, let’s face it, it still needs water to stay alive) and send it out to a loved one who was born in July. That’s why we recommend the oriental lily instead as the birth flower for July. Just like the water lily, oriental lilies are a symbol of purity and rebirth. They make a perfect wedding bouquet for a bride or may be gifted as a congratulatory gift to a person who has recently experienced a new milestone in life (new baby, yes!).

Same Day Flower delivery with Purpink

Though technically not a flower the narcissus plants are used for decorative purposes and are considered festive flowers. They represent cheer and this is why they are December birth flowers, the month of festivity. The excitement of getting to the end of the year is vivid in these blooms. They make for an elegant arrangement with the white variety being used as bridal bouquets.

 Our choice of December Flower of the Month is the Orchid. Orchids are exotic flowers that have a reputation of being symbols of fertility and elegance. White orchids, however, symbolize innocence and purity, as well as reverence. The purple orchids symbolize royalty and admiration and are traditionally gifted as a sign of respect. It is fitting then, that we celebrate December birthdays with a bloom worthy of a celebration. Best part? If you get an orchid plant, you can expect more than a year of care and beauty in your home. We have more tips on how to take care of your orchid plants, both during bloom season and off bloom season.
