Birth Flower for November
Birth flowers are blossoms that are associated with each month of the year, and first were established in the 18th century.
These birth flowers are part of the language of flowers, known as floriography. Just like birthstones, birth flowers represent various meanings and characteristics that also apply to those born in the month.
While each month typically has two birth flowers, November only has one: the chrysanthemum.
November Birthflower - Chrysanthemum
Chrysanthemums were first cultivated in China in the 15th century BC. There they were used as a remedy for headaches and inflammation.
Today, chrysanthemums are popular around the world and known for being bright and cheerful flowers. The National Chrysanthemum Society in America has come up with a classification system that lists different shapes of this flower, including spoon, spider, quilled, and pompom. How fun is that?
Generally, this flower symbolises friendship, happiness and longevity. In Japan, Chrysanthemum Day is a day of celebration for these beautiful blossoms!
Each colour of chrysanthemum has a different meaning. White blossoms symbolise loyalty while red ones stand for love.
These flowers are also believed to attract joy and good luck. With their positive meanings, and different shapes and colours, chrysanthemums make for a versatile gift for any occasion.
