Flower Spotlight: Daffodils

Spring marks the rebirth of nature! It is the season in which we see bright colored blooms, like daffodils, come to life once again. Let’s start the season by learning more about the beautiful flower of March!

Origins and Symbolism
Daffodils are native to North America, the Middle East and the Mediterranean region. They are some of the first flowers to bloom in spring, therefore symbolize “rebirth.” Other meanings are uncertainty, respect, unrequited love, regard, chivalry, modesty and faithfulness.

There is a Greek myth that talks about a beautiful boy named Narcissus. As you may know or for those who don’t, narcissus is another name widely used for this flower instead of daffodil. The myth says that this boy was so in love with himself that he just didn’t care about anyone else, he was indifferent to their emotions. The rejection to connect with people angered the gods, so they cursed him to one day fall in love and not have that love returned. The curse was fulfilled when one day, Narcissus, walked by a pool and unexpectedly saw an image looking back at him. It was his own reflection he saw but failed to recognize it. Lost in grief for not being able to fulfill his love, it’s been said, Narcissus laid next to the pool and “disappeared into the underworld.” People looked for him but all they found was a yellow flower, a daffodil, next to the pool where he last laid.

To Consider
The ASPCA says that daffodils are toxic to dogs, cats and horses. According to them the bulbs are the most poisonous part. If ingested by any of your pets they could cause vomit, diarrhea, low blood pressure and even convulsions.

Daffodils are most commonly found in the color yellow, other varieties have accents in colors white, lime green, pink and orange. They make beautiful hand-tied bouquets! Put some daffodils in a clear glass vase with other “spring looking” flowers to make a beautiful arrangement to brighten your home. The narcissus bloom usually grows from March to May, take advantage of the season and get your hands on this beauty!

Visit your local florist, you will find not only daffodils but many more astonishing blooms! If undecided as to what arrangement or flower to gift, ask for advice! The best part of dealing with your local florist is the personalized attention.  Check out our Bloomin’ Blog for more tips and ideas!

Flower Spotlight: Carnations

Today we will focus on January’s flower. You will learn about the origins of carnations, their meaning and other important facts about this beautiful bloom. Ready to fall in love with this flower? Keep on reading…

Origins & Symbolism

Dianthus Caryophyllus, better known as Carnation, has been cultivated for over 2,000 years in Europe and Asia. The name carnation derives from the words “coronation” or “corone” in reference to floral garlands used in ancient Greek ceremonial events. Greek botanist Theophrastus named the flower “Dianthus” meaning “flower of the gods.”

Carnation is the official Mother’s Day bloom. Anna Marie Jarvis, founder of this holiday, selected the flower in tribute to her own mother. They often symbolize fascination and distinction, but depending on the color of the bloom, it takes different meanings. Red means admiration and love, dark red shows deep love and affection, white equals purity and good luck, pink symbolizes gratitude and when striped they often signify refusal.

To Consider

There are over 300 species of carnations known to date, most of which bloom in full sunlight and well-drained soil. According to The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), carnations can be toxic to cats and dogs. If at all possible, try to keep your four-legged friends away from this astonishing flower. If they accidentally ingest this bloom, contact your local veterinary facility.


Carnations can be found in almost every color of the rainbow! They are classified as edible flowers, for humans, and are a popular choice for decorating cakes and other pastries. Make sure, if you will be eating this or any other flower classified as edible, to use only organically grown blooms. This is to prevent pesticides or any other harmful products from entering your system. Not too sure about eating the petals of carnations? Add this delicate flower in combination with other blooms, or by itself, to a desired vase. Perfect for weddings, birthdays and other events. You will see that carnations create beautiful arrangements, centerpieces and other decorative pieces!
