The meanings of flowers vary depending on personal beliefs, and where in the world you come from. They are often tied into history and culture. As a general rule, any flower can mean whatever you would like it to mean, but here are some of the flowers for birthday months and what they can represent.
Carnations are the flower for January, and essentially this flower symbolizes pride and beauty. A pink carnation can represent the love of a woman or a mother, while a white one connotes innocence and pure love. They are a delightful addition to any bouquet.
The traditional flowers for February are the Iris and Violet. The purple Iris symbolizes friendship, eloquence and wisdom, and the blue Iris can represent faith and hope. The Violet is known to symbolize modesty and faithfulness.
The traditional flower for the month of March is the Daffodil which is thought to symbolize chivalry, rebirth, new beginnings or unrequited love. This beautiful delicate yellow flower was chosen as a symbol for the Cancer Council’s research because of its connotations of hope.
For the month of April, the traditional flower is the Daisy, which is believed to connote innocence, loyalty and purity. The Gerbera Daisy has become known as a flower that inspires a feeling of cheerfulness. With its bright face it certainly does make you feel cheered up!
Lily, and Lily of the Valley are the flowers for the month of May, and with their crisp, light petals it is easy to understand why they have been attributed as a symbol of purity, modesty and virginity. The orange and yellow lilies can represent passion and gaiety.
A Rose by any other name would smell as sweet. The Rose has become the traditional flower of love, signifying love in all its forms, and with its sweet scent the Rose is a flower that lifts the heart and inspires the senses.
The traditional flower of the month of July, is the Larkspur which can represent strong bonds of love, so is a popular flower to choose for wedding anniversary bouquets. The white flower conveys a happy nature and purple is believed to symbolize first love.
The Gladiolus is the birth flower for the month of August, and symbolises the strong August born people very well, as it represents strength of character, honour and faithfulness. This was the flower of the Gladiators which is where it took its name, and can also connote sincerity of spirit.
The flowers for the month of September are the Morning Glory and the Aster. Asters are symbols of powerful love, and can also represent patience, elegance and daintiness. The gorgeous Morning Glory flowers are aptly named, as they bloom in the morning but die by the afternoon.
Marigold is the flower for October, and what a gorgeous flower is the vibrant Marigold, hailing from Mediterranean countries and popular for both its versatility and beauty.

The Poinsettia and Holly are two of the flowers of this month, and both feature in the tradition of Christmas celebrations. The Poinsettia, also known as the Christmas Star, was believed to have become a symbol for Christmas from a Mexican legend where a child, with nothing more to offer, gathered weeds from the side of the road to place on the altar.
