What could be the best sign of attention and an unforgettable gift for your loved and important people in your life? Flowers – of course! But the flowers are even better if you give them with meaning, meaning with the month when the recipient was born. Below, you will learn more about what the blooms represent for the people who were born in July.
There are two flowers for July. The first July birthday flower is a delphinium or a larkspur. The interesting thing is that in the Greek language – delphinium means dolphin because the blossoms look like dolphins. Delphiniums have tall stems with gorgeous flowers going around them. They have so many bright colors like blue, white, yellow, red, and pink. These colored blooms attract lots of bees and butterflies.
Larkspurs are a perfect addition to any flower arrangement with their long spikes coming out, they fill bouquets with a new summer look and delightfulness.
These summer blooms are a good combination to any flowers in bouquets. For example, if you use light blue delphinium in white flower arrangements, you will feel it’s like the ocean breeze coming out of the white sand.
Cut larkspurs could last almost for one week so you or your loved ones can enjoy them for 6-7 days just don’t forget to cut them and change the water in the vase every two days.
Be careful, delphiniums are poisonous for pets and humans, especially the young blooms and seeds. If you touch, for instance, the young blossoms, your skin could get irritated. Be careful!
The second July birthday flower is the water lily – the most gorgeous water flower. Think of the right moment to cut them because these blooms are open when the sun rises and close when the sun sets. When you find this moment, the water lily will last around 3 or 4 days with open buds. They are good for flower arrangements in vases, such as for floating arrangements on the water in wide shaped vases.
Water lilies represent balance and peace and are used in spiritual sessions to look at to balance your mind and body energy. Water lilies have lots of colors – yellow, pink, white or pastel.
To prolong life for these beautiful water flowers remember to make a fresh cut, always under water, and put them quickly in a vase with clean water. Also some stems are not stable and the buds are heavy so use the right length of vases to support the blooms or other flowers around them in flower arrangements.
Now you know about official July flowers but it does not mean that you can not use other flowers for July Birthday. There are so many flowers blooming in the middle of summer that you also could add to symbolic flowers, for example, gorgeous dahlias, fragrant lilies or puffy hydrangeas.
Dahlias start blooming in July and continue blooming until late fall. They have so many colors to use in different mono color bouquets or mixed colors. Their blossoms come in a variety of shapes from lilies in huge palm sizes to little round shaped buds.
Lilies with their unforgettable fragrance bloom once a year for 6-8 weeks, starting from June. So it’s a perfect time to use them in summer bouquets, especially for July birthdays.
And of course hydrangeas in any colors – white, pink, blue – will add volume to any bouquet.
So you have so many options to surprise your loved ones with a stunning bouquet with the flowers of July and blooming flowers. Make this day unforgettable!
