I thought it might be fun to write about the Flowers of the Month!
Let’s talk about June.
First, a little history.
Birth month flowers refer to certain species that are associated with each month of the year. It is said that the characteristics of each flower will pass down to the people who are born that month. You can also see them mentioned as “flowers by month” but they refer to the same thing.
The Origins of the Flowers by Month
Culturally speaking, it is important to see what flower to choose for a gift, depending on its characteristics (such as color, appearance or scent). But how did we get to offering flowers on birthdays? People think that the Romans were the first ones to use flowers to celebrate such events. They had seasonal flowers which were more than mere decorations since they offered them as gifts for people’s birthdays. As such, most likely this is how birth month flowers appeared. But let’s see what flowers fit each month!
The birth month flowers for June are the honeysuckle and the rose. The honeysuckle represents everlasting love between two people. This is not too different from the meaning of the rose.
I wondered if hummingbirds are attracted to honeysuckle, so I did what my daughter would say: GOOGLE IT!
From our at Melinda Myers at Birdsandblooms.com:
The rose has hundreds of meanings, depending on the color it has. For example, a pink rose symbolizes happiness, while a red one stands for true and passionate love. White roses are offered as a symbol of purity and innocence, while a yellow one means friendship. If you offer jut one rose, this underlines the meaning of that color. A bouquet means sincere gratitude instead.
Our customers LOVE roses! Even my daughter, who is about as “yuppy” as can be, loves the design of a dozen red roses by Pamela. And who doesn’t? Pair them with Stargazer Lilies for an amazing look of love!
There is no need to limit yourself to a dozen red roses!
Did you know that on November 20, 1986 President Ronald Reagan signed a resolution making the rose the national floral emblem at a ceremony in the White House Rose Garden?
