The symbolism of the May birth flower
Most birth flower origins are from Greek mythology and May is no exception. May is named after Maia, the goddess of spring, who resembles growth as most flowers bloom during this month. The May birth flower, lily of the valley, is a flowering plant with dainty tiny blooms grouped together. It has a mesmerising scent which symbolises a sweet personality. It has adorable bell-shaped petals that sprout facing downwards, which symbolises humility. Its precious and pristine white petals symbolise purity, which is why they’re commonly used in bridal bouquets at weddings too!
While this flower may be popular in other parts of the world, it doesn’t mean you can’t share the joy in South Africa! Lilies are truly remarkable and versatile flowers. They are rich in symbolic meaning and are available in many forms, colours and arrangements. The most popular lily colours are white, pink, yellow and orange. Pink lilies represent wealth and prosperity. The yellow lilies represent good health and healing and the orange stands for happiness and warmth. So, your birthday wishes to a May baby can include wholesome messages like good health and happiness!
