HERE ARE SOME OF THE SITES I FOUND FOR BIRTH FLOWERS
"amazing how we can never know it all"
Known as the "flower of love" or "flower of the gods," the carnation is one of the oldest cultivated flowers in history. If you think they're common, then that's only because you haven't grown them in your garden or eaten them in your salad! Curious?
Essential oils from the Iris plant are used in aromatherapy and in making perfume. But it's even more interesting to note that some species of Iris are used making a popular alcholic beverage.. Iris germanica, Iris florentina, and Iris pallida are used making gin--
Daffodils are your garden's narcissists... daffodils have narcotic (and toxic) properties.
Anyway you have it, daffodils are just plain lovely, and a more-than-welcome sight in the spring garden.
Daisies open with the sun and close at dark, which is how they get their common name: "Day's eye."
May: Lily of the valley
These sweet-smelling, dainty, shade-loving plants are a true harbinger of spring, and are sold on the streets of France on May Day.
Roses have a long history and have been the subject of art and literary works for hundreds--if not thousands--of years.
Delphiniums are extremely toxic (like, if you eat one, you could die), so site them with care and admire them from afar.
Claude Monet liked gladiolas enough to paint them. Even better, you can breed your own Gladiolus hybrids. A cool birth plant to have, indeed.
The word Aster has its roots in the ancient Greek language, where astron meant star--other star-related words are asteroid, astronaut, asterisk. Ssters shine like stars in the garden, with daisy-like flowers that attract butterflies. When many other plants are getting ready to go to sleep for the winter, asters are just getting started.
October: Pot Marigold
Pot marigolds are a great plant to have in ornamental, veggie, and herb gardens alike. They attract good bugs and repel the bad ones. You can use their petals in cooking or to make your own beauty products. Pot marigolds are a great plant to have in ornamental, veggie, and herb gardens alike. They attract good bugs and repel the bad ones. Their daisy-like petals are beautiful and can be used in salads and desserts. And they have a long list of medicinal and health and beauty uses.
Fall just wouldn't be the same without this perennial flowering herb. Yup, that's right. We said herb. Chrysanthemums are a fall-blooming flowering herb. They provide food for butterfly larvae, and herbal tea for people
Paperwhite daffodils are the perfect December flower. They are surprisingly easy to grow indoors.
