What is the Birth Month Flower for October?

October has two birth flowers: the Marigold and Cosmos. 

Marigolds, shaped like daisies, come in shades of yellow, orange, gold, crimson, and sometimes white or two-toned blooms. Marigolds range from a mere 6-inches size to a potential 2-3 feet tall, depending on their origin. Once known for symbolizing despair and grief, marigolds are now known to be symbolic of optimism and prosperity.

The Cosmos flower, also known as a daisy-like flower, grows to between 3 to 5 inches in diameter and comes in various colors and sizes. Popular colors include orange, purple, pink, and white. Cosmos represent order, peace, and serenity.

Botanical Background of the Marigold and Cosmos

The Marigold: Marigolds are members of the Tagetes family. The Tagetes family includes many annual and perennial plants, such as the marigolds. They are also part of the Asteraceae family. Carl Linnaeus first described the genus in 1753. They are native to the Americas, though some species have been naturalized worldwide.

The Cosmos: Cosmos is a genus of flowering plants in the sunflower family. Most cosmos species are native to Mexico’s scrub and meadowland regions. In the U.S., some varieties can be found as far north as Washington. However, the range also extends south to Central America and South America.
