You don’t have to be a 'flower person’ to like flowers or appreciate their beauty. Whether you’re a rose kind of gal purely for the romantic vibes, or a guy who’s secretly partial to daisies because of a late relative who used to garden alongside you when you were little, flowers resonate with each of us in some way, especially when you consider your birth month.
From the most delicate to the bloom-where-planted type, here are the flowers that connect best with you based on your zodiac sign.
Aries - Daffodils
(March 21 – April 20)
Known for their bright colors and spring bloom, daffodils are often considered to represent rebirth or new beginnings—perfect for the Aries—born between late March through April. These easy-blooming flowers are a great match with the sign who is just as bright and full of energy.
Taurus: Canna Lilies
(April 21 – May 21)
Canna lilies take a bit to grow, waiting for the perfect temperatures and soil before calling a place home. This is similar to the Taurus, who is drawn to stability and often bides time before fully committing. After these flowers have established themselves, they bloom into beautiful and intense flowers. Like the Taurus, canna lilies are adaptable and bold once they’ve taken root.
(May 22 – June 21)
Like the Gemini, who loves to be the center of attention, carnations are bright and cheerful flowers often chosen to be staple items in weddings and special occasions. These blooms are romantic and social, modeling the traits of the Gemini who loves to be around others and create a brightness in every situation or event.
(June 22 – July 22)
Roses are a symbol of dedication but are varied in their colors and designs in order to perfectly match the emotion of the giver, or the personality of the receiver. Like the Cancer, roses embody a fierce loyalty. Their lighter hues are gentle and nurturing, and their bold colors symbolize strength and protectiveness—all traits of the moody, romantic Cancer.
(July 23 – August 22)
Leos are proud and bold—so naturally, the flower that matches their personality best is the amaranth/amaranthus which grows anywhere from 18 inches to up to six feet tall. Much like the Leo, this attention-grabbing flower thrives on the adoration of others but does not do well with change or re-potting. Finding (and keeping) comfort and stability is important.
Virgo: Morning Glories
(August 23 – September 22)
Virgos are reflective and thoughtful, often keeping to themselves and moving through their own cycle independently. Morning glories symbolize affection and rebirth, embodying all that the Virgo is—mild on the surface, selfless and complex within, and continually shifting and growing.
(September 23 – October 22)
Daisies have strong, thick stems and soft, fluffy flowers—a balance of opposites that is so fitting with the Libra who craves order and peace. Daisies symbolize sincerity and gratefulness which is very representative of the Libra’s selfless and inherently gentle nature.
Scorpio: Oriental Lilies
(October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios are independent water signs; they feel emotion deeply and are content to be by themselves as they experience life. Oriental lilies, similarly, are low maintenance and thrive with the simple things: light and soil. These flowers evoke emotion with their rich colors and alluring fragrance, much like the Scorpio who often brings people in and soothes them with a calm demeanor.
(November 22 – December 21)
Hibiscus flowers are vibrant and bold, coming in a variety of colors. Like the Sagittarius, these flowers are filled with life and thrive on socialization—hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies alike flock to their petals. Hibiscus flowers are constantly soaking up water and energy from everything around them, just as the Sagittarius is always being filled by the adventure and thrill of the outside world.
(December 22 – January 20)
Ivy symbolizes faithfulness and fidelity; as such, these flowers won’t easily let go of what they’ve clung to. This is similar to the Capricorn, stubborn and driven in nature. This sign is a leader and dedicated to those (s)he cares for. Ivy perfectly embodies this vigor and passion.
(January 21 – February 19)
Orchids are loved by all and celebrated for their natural grace, loyalty, and independence. Don’t be fooled by the orchid’s self-surviving nature, though. Much like the Aquarius, these flowers are delicate and thrive on closeness and connection with others to truly bloom.
(February 20 – March 20)
Born in the spring, lilacs embody the newness and rebirth of this water sign. Like the Pisces, lilacs display serenity with their calm, yet rich purple and white hues. However, for the flower and sign alike, hiding right below the surface is this vibrant fiercely passionate nature.
