February is a month that all about romance. As the official Summer season draws to an end, we are celebrating love in all its forms, and those born in February know how to do that well. Sure, there’s something special about receiving flowers in February for Valentine’s Day, but receiving your birth flower in the same month, now that's a whole other level of special.
February's Birth Flower is the Iris. It is the symbolic flower of the Greek goddess Iris, who was also the messenger of love, it seems fitting as those born in February ooze a romantic elegance. Wearing the Iris symbolises eloquence, faith, wisdom and hope.
The Iris also has many practical purposes, with a long history of use in herbal medicine.
While the meaning behind the gift of Irises can change depending on the colour, generally they symbolise hope, wisdom and compliments.
Flowers have always been a gentle substitute for words, conveying emotions, thoughts, and moods with floral beauty, so maybe it’s time to spoil yourself or someone you love with a special flower that lasts a lifetime.
