November Birth Flowers and Meanings

You might be curious about the birth flowers for November: The Chrysanthemum and the Peony.



Why Are There Two Birth Flowers in November?



In November, there are two birth flowers to give people more options to pick a flower that feels right for their birth month. This tradition of matching flowers with months goes way back in history, with different cultures having their lists of flowers for each month. As time passed, these lists mixed and changed, leading to multiple flowers being linked to each month nowadays. For November, the two birth flowers are Chrysanthemum and Peony. Having two options lets folks select the flower they like best or connect with more, whether it's because of how it looks, what it means, or its symbolism.



November Birth Flower Meaning



After roses and lilies, chrysanthemums are among the world's top choices for cut flowers. In contrast, peonies have gathered a dedicated group of enthusiasts because they only bloom briefly in late spring and early summer. Now, let's delve into the significance of each November birth flower.



First November birth flower: Chrysanthemum



Chrysanthemums originally come from Asia, and their name comes from Greek words: "chrysos" means "gold," and "anthemon" means "flower." At first, chrysanthemums were gold, but people changed them through careful growing. They come in many colours, like yellow, orange, white, purple, pink, and red. These flowers belong to the daisy family, and they are grown worldwide because they're so popular.


Chrysanthemum Meanings



1. Chrysanthemums have special meanings, like loyalty, friendship, and happiness. However, the meaning can change based on the flower's colour. For instance, red means real love, white stands for purity and honesty, and yellow represents a heart hurt or love overlooked.

2. In general, chrysanthemums represent living a long life, being hopeful, and feeling happy.

3. In China and Japan, they see chrysanthemums as a symbol of being young. They thought it could help you live a longer, healthier life. In old stories, it was believed that putting one chrysanthemum petal at the bottom of a glass of wine would help you live longer.



Meanings of Other Chrysanthemum Colors



1. Green Chrysanthemum: Green chrysanthemums mean good luck, new beginnings, and health. Give them to someone to remind them of their bright future.
2. pink chrysanthemums: Like pink roses and tulips, they represent friendship and affection.
3. Purple Chrysanthemum: They show thoughtfulness and care. They're also a great choice to wish someone get well soon.



History of Chrysanthemum Flower



Chrysanthemums were first grown in China way back in the 15th Century B.C. People saw them as unique because they were like magical plants that gave life.
1. Boiled the roots for headaches
2. Eating the young sprouts and petals in salads
3. Brewed the leaves for drinks
In China, they called it "Chu," and there's even a city called "Chrysanthemum City" to honour it.

Around the 8th century A.D., chrysanthemums made their way to Japan, and the Japanese loved them. They liked them so much that they made a chrysanthemum flower symbolising their Emperor. Chrysanthemums in Japan also represent having a long and happy life. September 9th is celebrated as National Chrysanthemum Day in Japan. They've been celebrating this festival since way back in 910 A.D. It's also called "The Festival of Happiness."

In Australia, they're the flower of Mother's Day because they shorten the name to "mums." Besides being one of the birth flowers for November, chrysanthemums are also the traditional flower for celebrating a 13th wedding anniversary.



Second November Birth: Peony



Peonies are famous for their big, frilly petals and gentle colours. People give them to show deep care, romantic emotions, and happy thoughts. And if you have loved ones born in November, you can provide them peonies to celebrate birthdays! They belong to the Paeonia family and are famous for their big, colourful blooms in shades like white, pink, red, and yellow. There are two main types of peonies: one kind, called herbaceous peonies, and tree peonies, which have woody solid stems.


Peony Meanings


Peonies carry different meanings that have changed and vary in different cultures. Generally, they stand for good luck, happiness, and success. They're also linked to love, romance, and kindness.

In China, people think of peonies as the "king of flowers" and a symbol of honour, wealth, and high status. During the Tang Dynasty, they even grew peonies in the emperor's gardens, representing the ruling class. In Japan, peonies signify good luck, courage, and respect.



The various colours of peony flowers have their unique meanings



1. White peonies symbolise purity, innocence, and humility.

2. Pink peonies symbolise romance, love, and happiness.

3. Red peonies signify honour, respect, and passion.

4. Yellow peonies represent wealth, prosperity, and good fortune

 

History of peonies

 


Peonies, often called "The King of Flowers," have more than 4000 years of history. They first popped up in Asia around 700 A.D., but it was in the 1800s that they made their way to Europe. European artists found them inspiring.

In Japan, peonies were grown in many gardens because they symbolised honour and good fortune. Nowadays, Japan is a significant supplier of these lovely birth flowers, but the Netherlands is the world's biggest producer.

There are some interesting myths about peonies. In Greek mythology, the name "peony" comes from Paeon, a doctor of the Greek Gods. He got on the wrong side of Asclepius, the God of medicine, by curing Pluto, the God of wealth, with a peony root.
