Whilst we are all probably familiar with our zodiac signs and birthstones, we might not know about our birth month flowers. But each month has a designated flower which holds its own special meanings! Much like zodiac signs and birth stones, birth month flowers are said to give an insight into the characteristics of the people born in that month- but also helps you choose a meaningful birthday gifts!

February’s Birth Month Flower: Violet
Much like February’s birthstone, which is amethyst, its birth month flower is also purple! Historically, their heart-shaped petals were used in love potions- which we think is a perfect fit for the month that is the home of Valentine’s Day!
The beautiful violet is said to symbolise humility, wisdom and faithfulness. Therefore, it is said that those with a February birthday are humble, wise, honest and innocent.

This birth month flower signifies innocence and loyalty, and so people born in April are said to be sweet, kind and loyal!
