Birth Flower for March
Ever since the 18th century, flowers have been assigned to each month and called “birth flowers.”
According to the language of flowers, also known as floriography, each birth flower carries its own meaning.
Just like birthstones, each month has one or two flowers associated with it. March is represented by two lovely flowers: daffodils and jonquils.
March Birthflower - Jonquil
Jonquils are a cheerful bright yellow, and their appearance signifies the start of spring! This flower is native to Southern Europe and North-Eastern Africa. It stands for desire and bliss.
Daffodil - Birth Flower March
While daffodils and jonquils look similar, they are not the same. Daffodils are one of the most recognisable flowers in spring.
They are also widely known for their bright white and yellow petals. As daffodils are usually the first flowers to bloom after winter, they signify the start of spring and new beginnings. Hooray!
In China, daffodils symbolise prosperity as they tend to blossom around Chinese New Year.
Daffodils stand for faithfulness in Wales, where they are the national flower. They also symbolise the expression of deep love.
