Narcissus - Birth Flower December

The other birth flower for December is the narcissus. The name of this flower is believed to have originated from Greek mythology and its story of Narcissus.  Narcissus flowers are known for their trumpet-like centre.

This flower is associated with different meanings depending on what part of the world you live in. For example, the Chinese associate this flower with prosperity and wealth, while Victorians associate this flower with change.

The December birth flower narcissus comes in various colours including white, yellow, pink and orange. The meaning behind the blossom varies by colour.

White narcissus is known to symbolise innocence, while orange narcissus is linked to friendship. The language of flowers suggests that giving someone a narcissus shows that they are “the only one” for you.

Now that you speak the language of flowers, who will you tell is your 'only one'?
