Each month of the year has a birth flower associated with it, similar to how each month has an associated birthstone. Birth flowers symbolize different virtues such as hope, kindness and bravery.
Some months have a single birth flower. For example, February's birth flower is the violet, which symbolizes watchfulness, loyalty and faithfulness. Other months have two birth flowers. For example, April's birth flowers are the sweet pea, which represents pleasure, and the daisy, which represents innocence. Sometimes a birth flower symbolizes different things based on the color. For example carnations, one of the flowers for January, represent affection or rejection depending on whether they're pink or yellow.
