Flowers of the Months


Celebrate life's milestones with the flower of the month!

Monthly Expressions
Today's flowers of the months are rooted in ancient Chinese and Japanese flower calendars. Throughout the 14th and 15th centuries, calendars in Europe featured farming activities that took place during a particular month. Later, during the more expressive and artistic 19th century, Europeans adopted the ancient Oriental tradition of honoring each month with its own seasonal flower.

Like birthstones, monthly flowers have come to signify the month in which a person was born. And while monthly flowers may differ slightly from region to region, each still represents the "birth" of a new month and new possibilities. Some say a bouquet of birth month flowers brings the receiver a year of good luck!

Special Meaning
Bouquets that feature monthly blooms bring special meaning to celebrations such as birthdays and anniversaries. New parents delight in a bouquet that features their baby's birth month flower; couples cherish bouquets that symbolize the month in which their wedding ceremony took place. Tell someone, "You're one of a kind" on his or her birthday with a bouquet that includes his or her monthly flower.
