December is a special month as it host two very special flowers as December’s birth flowers – the Poinsettia and the Narcissus.

The Poinsettia equates celebration, success, reassurance, and good cheer when gifted. The Poinsettia is known for its striking red displays at Christmas time and is often used as a floral Christmas decoration because of its festive colors.

Native to southern Mexico and Central America, the Poinsettia is known to reach heights of sixteen feet. They got their name from the first United States Ambassador to Mexico – Joel Roberts Poinsett who introduced the plant in the U.S. in 1825.

The Narcissus equates formality, sweetness, formality, respect, modesty and faithfulness when gifted. During the Victorian Era it is said that gifting Narcissus meant that the receiver was the ‘One and Only”. In Wales, it is traditional to wear a daffodil on Saint David’s Day (March 1st).

Narcissus is the Latin name for a group of hardy bulbous plant having erect linear leaves and showy yellow or white flowers. Narcissus is also called the Daffodil. There are several Narcissus species that bloom in the autumn but mostly are spring blooming. They are mostly native to the Mediterranean region, but a few species are found through central Asia to China. Common colors of Narcissus are white, yellow, and orange.

Narcissus and Poinsettia are a couple of the more common flowers used to celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year’s Eve and make for a perfect gift for that December birthday person, or as a holiday gift.
