I thought it might be fun to write about the Flowers of the Month!

Let’s talk about September.

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!

Morning Glory, Aster

September comes with a breeze of cool air and brings us the birth month flowers morning glory and aster. Morning glories are flowers that symbolize affection. If you are an early riser, you can notice them bloom. It would be best to take advantage of this moment of the day because later they will curl and close.

I found it a bit comical that there is a morning glory muffin! They are a glorious way to start any day. They combine the great taste and chewy texture of carrots with the wonderful flavors of apple, raisins, coconut, walnuts, and cinnamon.  Sounds yummy, doesn’t it?

Asters have always been appreciated for their symbolism of a powerful love. Maybe because of their meaning, people used to burn the aster flower to keep serpents at bay. They bring some color to the early fall views and they don’t need that much maintenance.

Asters are the grande finale to the perennial garden, displaying vibrant fall colors in shades of pink, purple, blue, and white. They’re also one of the last great feeding opportunities for bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. For gardeners, it’s a two-for-one deal: beautiful blooms and a flurry of attractive wildlife.

 Although there are many varieties and classifications of asters—New England, New York, heath, calico, aromatic, smooth, and wood, all native to North America—the basic qualities to look for when choosing one are height, bloom color, and bloom time. Whether you’re choosing one variety or several varieties of aster to brighten your fall garden, consider all of these factors. Once you’ve narrowed your options and made your final selection, some basic know-how will help you get the most out of your asters and keep them looking their best.

We design many floral arrangements with larkspur in lavender or white. It’s a pretty, soft flower that seems to soften a floral piece in just the right places! Rhymes with Orange is one of our best sellers!

If you are fortunate to be, or to know, a September baby, then you share in the Fall Equinox. This beginning of the autumn season might change your mood, but it will never lessen the importance of having a September birthday!
