Birth Flower for November
Introduced in the 18th century, birth flowers are flowers associated with each month.
These birth flowers were created through the language of flowers, also known as floriography. Similar to birth stones, birth flowers represent various meanings and characteristics.
While each month typically has two birth flowers, November only has one - the chrysanthemum.
November Birthflower - Chrysanthemum
This flower dates back to the 15th century BC, where it was first cultivated in China. In Chinese culture, chrysanthemums are used as an herbal remedy for ailments such as headache relief and anti-inflammatory.
Today, chrysanthemums are popular around the world and known for being bright and colourful flowers. As chrysanthemums come in various shapes, the National Chrysanthemum Society in America has come up with a classification system based on each flower shape, including spoon, spider, quilled and pompom.
Generally, this flower symbolises friendship, happiness and longevity. However, this differs in different countries. In Japan, chrysanthemums have their own special day, Chrysanthemum Day, where they celebrate these flowers.
The various colours of chrysanthemum flowers also give different meanings. White chrysanthemums symbolise loyalty while red ones symbolise love.
These flowers are also believed to bring joy and good luck into one’s home. Chrysanthemums make for a versatile gift for any occasion as they come in so many colours and types.
