A Flower For Every Season

Nov 24, 2007
Youre a romantic guy and you want to do something nice for that special lady in your life. So, you come up with an idea to give her a flower for every season throughout the year. Trouble is, you dont know what flower goes with what season, so here is a helpful guide.

Springs Best Bet: Cherry Blossoms this flower is a perfect fit for the love in your life. For the Chinese, this flower symbolizes feminine beauty, principle and love. Their rich, pink petals give them unmatched beauty.
Runner ups: Daffodils, Lillies, Lilacs and Tulips.

Summers Best Bet: Daisies Forgetting about HAL's creepy singing about a girl named Daisy as he was shut down in A Space Odyssey, these flowers are beautiful, so much so that they rank fifth in the world in terms of cut flowers. While they lack in color, usually only white with a black center, their beauty lies in their simplicity and ordinary grace.
Runner ups: Geraniums, Jacobs Ladder, Roses and Sunflowers.

Autums Best Bet: Chrysanthemums This hugely popular flower is one of the most cut in the world, ahead of even Daisies. So beautiful is this flower that in ancient Japan, the emperor adopted it as his official seal. Beyond its use as a beautiful gift, these flowers make an excellent tea, can reduce indoor air pollution and its seeds act as an effective insecticide. It is the official flower of Chicago and the official flower for the month of November, which is on the cusp of winter oddly.
Runner ups: Asters, Zinnias, Gerbera Daisies and Marigolds

Winters Best Bet: Forget-Me-Nots What other flower could be used for winter than the Forget-Me-Not, the state flower of Alaska, a place known for winter and snow. This flower, luckily for it, does not need sun but rather shade. Its blue petals and yellow center give it a beautiful aspect that clears the dreariness of the winter. The name comes from 15th-century Germany where the wearer of a Forget-Me-Not was believed to never forget the name of their lover.
Runner Ups: Jasmine, Orchids, Poinsettas and Hollies.

Of course, this is just a guide to the flowers and in reality, any flower you pick for that special lady in your life is going to be special. This guide just serves to provide some assistance for the man who wants to seem a bit more knowledgeable and romantic to his wife or girlfriend.
