March is the month that paves the way for the coming of spring. This is the time where flowers start to bloom in a warmer weather. Fresh from winter, a lot of flower varieties start to bloom in March as they welcome spring, the most awaited part of the season.

The Birth Flower

Just like stones, flowers also play a significant role in the months of the year. As the stone of the month has a meaning behind it, the flower of the month also symbolizes relevance. Often times, the flowers symbolize feelings and affections, especially the feelings that are not easy to express and show.

Daffodil as the Birth Flower of March

The birth flower of the month of March is the daffodil. The daffodil symbolizes unequaled love for someone. May it be an unequaled love for someone special such as a lover, a partner, or a spouse, or the unequaled love of a parent to a child and vice versa, the daffodil flower has the best role in expressing it. The daffodil flower also symbolizes domestic happiness, and whether given to the mother, to the father, or the children, daffodil gives out the meaning “you are an angel to me.” Giving daffodil has also an underlying meaning of desire for affection from someone. It also conveys sympathy, concern, and care.

The Characteristics of Daffodil

The daffodil flower is also commonly known in the names Jonquil and Narcissus which makes its scientific name Narcissus jonquilla. This type of flower has three shades—white, orange, and yellow. Though there are also varieties that have a hint of pink and lime green. The most common daffodil is the yellow variety, which makes it popular among the varieties of daffodil. Though it is the birth flower of March, daffodils usually bloom in the early February and lasts up until the latter part of May. It has six petals that all together resemble an interesting trumpet-like shape. What make its stems unique are its being leafless all throughout, as well as its ability to hold from one to twenty fully-bloomed daffodils.

Daffodils and History

The daffodils played a huge, but a bit funny, role in history. For one, the Romans brought daffodils to Britain, thinking that these flowers had healing powers. The Arabs, on the other hand, used the daffodil juice as their means of curing baldness—to no avail. For its more relevant roles in history, the daffodil was used as the emblem of Wales and was worn every March 1 in the celebration of St. David's Day. History has it that poisonous daffodils were brought by Roman soldiers to make them die faster shall they be heavily wounded during the battle.

Other Flowers that Grow in March

Apart from daffodils, the flowers that bloom in March also include most varieties of orchids, bird of paradise, peach blossom, sweet pea, poppy, heather or heath, hyacinth, gardenia, corn flower, camellia, crocus, some lilies such as casa blanca and gloriosa, stargazer, lilac, rose, and apple blossom.
