I thought it might be fun to write about the Flowers of the Month!
Let’s talk about November.
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!
Probably one of our favorite fresh flowers to use in floral arrangements, the chrysanthemum is a beautiful, bright, cheerful flower that seems to say “Hello” to everyone it sees! We carry them in assorted varieties, and usually in white, yellow, lavender and green.
Like the rose, a red chrysanthemum symbolizes true love and the white one stands for innocence and purity.
The Chinese and the Japanese see the chrysanthemum as a strong symbol of youth. It is believed that a petal put on the bottom of the glass filled with wine will make you live longer! In the Chinese folklore, this flower keeps gray hair at bay. They are perennial flowers that are very beautiful. After they are done blooming, you should place a layer of straw as a mulch in order to keep the cold away from them.
We love designing with these beautiful flowers. You can visit our “Fall” section on Roadrunner Florist for more pictures, and I’ll post some pictures so you can enjoy them with us! One of our favorites is the Cornucopia, which is the symbol of the bountiful harvest we celebrate in November.
I think November people are very special people. My mom is a November 25th baby. My first boyfriend Benjy is a November 23rd baby. What is your birthdate in November and what sets you apart from everyone else?
