Daffodil: March’s Flower
Comments Off on Daffodil: March’s Flower
Daffodils – the birth flower of March – are trumpet-shaped flowers that come in a variety of sizes and colours. Traditionally, they are a sunny yellow but can also be white or pastel yellow. Across many cultures, the daffodil has an uplifting meaning. Typically they symbolize creativity, inspiration, renewal, inner reflection and forgiveness. In Chinese culture the daffodil symbolizes good fortune, while in Japan it means joyousness. French people see the daffodil as a symbol of hope and in Wales the first to find a daffodil bloom will be blessed for the upcoming year.
Perhaps the most universally known symbol for the daffodil is its association with the Cancer association.
The daffodil flower is a trumpet shaped bloom on a slender stalk. The unique flowers can range from ½ an inch to 5 inches depending on the plant size. Native to the Mediterranean, they originally grew in Greece and Rome before becoming wild, and then being cultivated by Europe.
The message of the daffodil is uplifting and energizing. This makes it the perfect bloom for new beginnings and to express a positive sentiment to a friend. It’s a wonderful flower for births, housewarmings and to treat someone special.

Inspired in August
Sometimes the best things that you can read are inspirational quotes – especially ones about flowers. So that’s why Ngenious Floriade has decided to start blogging an “inspired” and “ngenious” monthly flower quote for you to read and enjoy. This month “Inspired in August” brings you:
When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not. – Georgia O’Keeffe
Have a lovely August!
