March Birth Flower
March brings us sunny days and the first burst of spring near the end of the month. Animals come out of hibernation, March Madness takes over our TV screens, and it brings us the first full moon of the year. March also brings us St. Patrick’s Day, International Women’s Day, and a variety of religious observances. To quote Lewis Grizzard, “Springtime is the land awakening. The March winds are the morning yawn.” The shifting of the seasons in March is a signal of new beginnings and hope.
What is the Birth Flower for March?
March’s birth flower is the daffodil. Most commonly recognized as a symbol of spring, the daffodil represents hope, joy, and rebirth. Daffodils have been around since ancient Egypt and Pompeii. The daffodil is recognized by different countries in different ways. In China, daffodils are significant as signs of prosperity and good luck. The daffodil is even the national flower of Wales!

Daffodils: Of the genus Narcissus, daffodils are a spring perennial flower. There are approximately 50 different species in this particular genus and is native to meadows and woods in southern Europe and North Africa.
