From picking flowers in the wild to having beautiful bouquets delivered, flowers always make an impact. A single flower can be used to communicate a variety of emotions and be used for everything from celebrations to sympathy. Blooms have a language of their own and their symbolic meanings have been recognised for centuries across Europe and Asia.
Every month has its own flower that represents nuanced meanings, expression of feelings, and intentions. You don’t even need a reason to send flowers, it’s always a good idea. And in March, whether for a birthday or just something special, Daffodils (Narcissus) are the way to go. Daffodils usually bloom in spring and while locally that’s still a while away, in the northern hemisphere, March is the start of the season. This is the reason why Daffodils are often associated with Easter and why they are sometimes knows as the ‘Lent Lilly’ in England. Their vibrant colour and blooming time represent rebirth and new beginnings, while also symbolising friendship and happiness.
There are over 50 species of these trumpeting beauties and their colouring ranges from pale whites to vibrant yellows and oranges. Their message is uplifting and energising, making it relevant for almost any occasion, from celebrating new beginnings to expressing desire for someone.
Some flora trivia
Caring for your Daffodils.
Daffodils do best in sunny areas with partial shade. If you’ve got them planted, water them every four days (weather dependent) and make sure to keep the soil moist. They’re excellent cut flowers and should be planted by mid-June so that they will bring the sunshine come springtime.
