June Birth Flower: Rose

It’s time to stop and smell the June birth flower, because you guessed it, this month we’re honoring ‘the queen of flowers’, the rose!

If June is your birthday month, or a friend or loved one’s, then be sure to delight them (or yourself) with a gene-‘rose’ birthday gift. This blog will hopefully inspire you with amazing gifts ideas for them. After all, every birthday celebration calls for a rosy occasion!

The Symbolism Of The June Birth Flower

If you’ve been following our series of birth flower blogs then you’ll know by now that the origin of the birth flower is rooted in both Greek and Roman mythology. The ancient Romans were known to celebrate births and birthdays with seasonal flowers, and today this tradition still continues.

The symbolism of roses has for decades been that of love, romance, and beauty. In Greek mythology it was said that Aphrodite, the goddess of love, first created red roses when her tears combined with the blood of her injured lover Adonis (very ‘rose’-mantic!). And in the Victorian Era, lovers sent red roses to one another as a way of expressing their love. Thankfully, there are over 100 species of roses, each with their own spectacular range of colours! So, you don’t have to worry about ever sending the wrong message with your rose gift (unless it’s Valentine’s Day of course).

Red roses might symbolise love, passion, and desire, but pretty pink roses signify gratitude and admiration. Yellow roses capture feelings of joy, warmth, and friendship, whilst orange roses stand for energy and enthusiasm. Then there are wondrous white roses, that symbolise purity, eternity, and grace, and they are widely known as the bridal flower.

Whether you want to say ‘congrats, ‘thank you’, or ‘well done’, say it all with a radiant rose gift!
