Another February birth month flower is the violet flower. Violets have beautiful, heart-shaped leaves which are perfect for the significance of Valentines Day falling on the 14th February. The rich, purple violet colour of a violet flower lends itself nicely to the purple amethyst, the birthstone for February.

The violet flower symbolises faithfulness, love and loyalty.

The Iris

Another beautiful purple flower, the iris flower symbolises protection and love.

The Primrose

The pretty little primrose flower, native to woodland areas, flowers in February in a carpet of purple. The Celts believed that large patches of primroses meant there was a gateway to fairy land and, that if you ate a primrose it would allow you to see a fairy.

The primrose flower offered protection, love and security.

Victorians, the era that embraced the language of flowers to their heart – indeed most families owned a ‘Language of the Flowers’ book, believed that by giving primrose flowers it meany young love and said, “I can’t live without you”.

In a ‘Midsummers Nights Dream’ Shakespeare wrote of young lovers meeting on “primrose beds”.
