Need A Cool Birthday Gift This March?
[caption id="attachment_2257" align="alignright" width="125" caption="Potted Daffodils Are Great Birthday Gifts"][/caption]
It says a lot about you when the flower that you're holding seems to reach out to hug you. Perhaps I just love flowers and want the favor returned, but this is exactly the image that I'm presented with when gazing upon daffodils.
"Daffodils" is the term associated with flowers of the Narcissus genus, while jonquils are the commonplace term for the specific species, Narcissus jonquilla. Jonquils (Narcissus jonquilla) actually refers to the seventh division of daffodils. Divisions for this flower are based mostly on their different flower forms. Whatever the reason for this extra specificity, jonquils share the title for the birth month flower of March.
With both daffodils and jonquils taking center stage this month, I figured that this would be a great chance to talk up the pretty blooms.
Whatever term is used, daffodils are (mostly) bright yellow flowers that seem to exude sunshine. Thick and sturdy stems support the colorful portion of the daffodil as there is just too much greatness for a wimpy stem to hold. An uprising "cup" in the center leaves one wondering why ranunculus bears the name "buttercup" instead. It is a truly beautiful flower that is gaining widespread popularity, especially during the spring and summer months.
It's hard not to take inspiration from this amazing flower. Why would you want a pocket full of posies when you could have a pocket full of sunshine? Potted daffodils make a great addition to any home or office. With March birthdays aplenty, consider potted daffodils as your next big gift idea. It's also a fun idea to talk with your local florist about using daffodils or flowers that have a similar characteristic that you like. Your florist can create an amazing bouquet based off of your ideas; your great idea taken from the birth month flower of March. See why it's so easy to love?
