June Birthday Flowers

Order two dozen white roses for your June birthday friend or loved one and really make the day special

Long considered the month of love, June's birth flower is the rose. It is said people born in June are similarly known for their passion.

The rose is considered a flower of passion. It has many significant meanings, most of which depend on the color of the rose being given and the number of blooms in a bouquet. In Victorian times, each flower color and type had its own secret meaning. No matter what the color, though, all roses symbolize love and appreciation.

According to Greek legend, Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, gave a rose to Eros, the God of Love. Since then, roses have been the ultimate symbol of true love, passion, and feelings of intensity.

Nowadays, roses are one of the most recognizable blooms on earth. It comes in a huge variety of colors, though the most common ones are pink, red, and white. Red roses stand for heated passion and love, while pink roses mean a gentler type of love. Light pink roses can mean both admiration and sympathy. White roses stand for purity, innocence, friendship, and secrecy.

Yellow is also a common color, and stands for undying affection or committed friendship. You may also see green roses, which bring a sense of calm, or purple roses, which stand for protection.

Roses are ideal as a birth month flower for June babies, as most rose bushes flower throughout the month. Roses are perennial shrubs that grow in a huge variety of climates. Most species are native to Asia, though a few species of roses come from Europe and Africa.
