December is always associated with holiday celebrations such as Christmas and the coming of the New Year. December, being a winter month, is an excellent time of the year to plant, grow, find, and cut winter flowers. Similarly, this is the time where the birth flower if December, the narcissus, is abundant.
The flower narcissus is the flower that represents the month of December, the same way the gem stone turquoise represents this month. The meaning behind the narcissus flower is respect and faithfulness, as well as humility and modesty.
During the ancient times, expressing one's feelings was totally prohibited. The culture then did not allow one to show the feelings and affection to the other, and it was at this time where giving of flowers was done to express ones feelings. By giving narcissus flower, it was the giver's way of expressing to the recipient ''you are the one'', or ''I have found you'', or ''I have found my true love in you.'' Suffice it to say, giving narcissus flowers means a love found.
The Narcissus flower comes in a variety of colours, and the most common ones are the varieties of white, yellow, and orange. This flower is native to the Mediterranean region and in some parts of Asia, particularly the country China. Over the years, it has increased the areas where it can grow. The US, for instance, is abundant with the narcissus flowers.
This flower has about 500 varieties. It is also known by the name Golden Shower Tree. This flower is a native to the Indian subcontinent and can be found as well in the south-eastern part of Asia. Through the years, it has broadened its area of cultivation, and now, it can even be seen in different parts of the US. In India, the flower cassia plays an important role in their traditional and cultural events.
This flower serves as a house plant and its beauty can instantly liven up any area of the house. The winter temperate benefits this plant, and so it is also excellent to grow outdoors. Despite its ability to grow in the month of December, high humidity is important when growing this flower. The most common shades of cyclamen are pink, white, and red.
One of the famous varieties of daisy flower, the Gerbera is also one of the flowers that can grow in the month of December. Though gerberas are always seen in pots, in floral arrangements, and in lovely bouquets, blooming gerberas in the garden can also be very pleasing to the eyes. However, one must be very keen on getting rid of caterpillars, one of the insects that get attracted with Gerbera.
If the weather is not too cold, winter camellias bloom during the early days of the cold months. Protecting winter camellias from strong winds is actually one of the challenges a gardener faces when maintaining winter camellias.
