Who knew you could pick flowers by zodiac sign? We all (well, majority of people) love a big bunch of flowers to brighten the room, especially this year when we’re spending more time in the house. It can be calming and cosy to have some fresh blooms nearby.
But according to online florist Serenata Flowers, there’s a certain type of flower that’s best suited to each star sign. So whether it’s a gift, or just a mid-week treat, you can now pick the flowers by zodiac sign.
Flowers by zodiac sign
Aries (March 21 - April 20): Honeysuckle
Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac, which means it’s a symbol of new beginnings. They're known for being assertive, and this is reflected by their birth flowers – thistles and honeysuckle – because they bloom in "bold colours during the early spring,” according to Serenata Flowers.
Taurus (April 21 - May 21): Lilies
Those with the Taurus star sign tend to laugh a lot and enjoy life to the full. They enjoy being "overwhelmed with love", which is why their birth flower is the heavily flagrant lily.
Gemini (May 22 - June 21) Lavender
Playful and artistic, Geminis will love a bouquet that matches those characteristics. This is why lavender flowers should be your go-to for a Gemini. "Its vivid purple colour and attractive smell synergises with Gemini’s natural charisma and irresistible charm", they say.
Cancer (June 22 - July 22): White roses
Warm, friendly and sweet and often traits seen in those with a Cancer star sign.
"Moon-child Cancer will feel a sense of serenity with white flowers - especially white roses. The delicate white petals are symbolic of Cancer’s inner sensitivity. White is a significant colour for Cancer as it offers a blank canvas that allows Cancer’s creativity to flourish and bloom."
Leo (July 23 - August 23): Sunflowers
According to the flower experts, Leos are partial to sunflowers because of their outgoing and outlandish personality. "Enjoy a burst of sunlight from these bright flowers that will remind admirers of Leo’s happy demeanour."
Virgo (August 24 - September 22): Chrysanthemums
Virgos are known for being perfectionists who have an eye for detail, which is "petite flowers such a chrysanthemums" are the perfect choice for them. These can be mixed with larger blooms for the perfect bouquet.
Libra (September 23 - October 23): Roses
"Libras have a clear sense of right and wrong, and are often incredibly balanced, much like a perfectly composed rose. The colour blue also holds special meaning for Libras so why not give a rose bouquet, interlaced with smaller blue buds, as a gift for your Libra loved one."
Libras are sociable, gentle with a hint of seduction, according to Serenata.
Scorpio (October 24 - November 22): Geraniums
Passionate, intellectual and filled with mystery, Scorpios are known for being dark horses, and feel "a connection to dark red flowers such as geraniums".
Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21): Carnations
"Lovable Sagittarius feels most connected to popular carnations. Pretty and uncomplicated, carnations are sure to add a feminine touch to any home and put a smile on a Sagittarius’ face. Carnations are most commonly associated with wedding flowers, which corresponds perfectly with Sagittarius’ love of love."
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): Pansies
Pansies correspond to "tenacious Capricorns", as they often return year after year and spread larger with each season. Like "determined and hardworking Capricorns", pansies seem to only get better with age.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): Orchids
Those with an Aquarius sign are both kind and spontaneous. They enjoy embarking on new adventures, are highly affected by their surroundings, becoming "energetic when they are in the comfort of friends" - much like delicate orchids.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20): Water lilies
With the Pisces Zodiac symbol connection to water (with their symbol being a fish and all), it shouldn't come as a surprise that their flower also has an aquatic connection. Like Pisces, water lilies are artistic and whimsical in their approach to life. "They often find themselves floating along, enjoying the ride and they share this sense of fun with everyone they meet", the flower experts say.
