Along with their beauty, fragrance, and color, these zodiac flowers bring a sense of balance and harmony into the lives of your friends and loved ones. Let’s take a look at the special flowers for each sign of the zodiac, along with some gift suggestions that will surely be appreciated all the more because of their symbolic meanings.
Fiery Aries is all about enthusiasm and new beginnings. It is well matched with honeysuckle, which flowers early in the summer. The sweet smell of the pink and white flowers goes well with the cheerful self-confidence that the typical Aries exudes. An Aries also is determined to see things through, similar to their zodiac flower, which takes us from late spring to high summer.
This dependable earth sign produces people who are strong, serious, and kind. Colorful and hardy poppies channel the Taurean love of beauty, as well as their resilience in all kinds of challenging conditions.
There’s nothing shy or commonplace about Geminis, and the flamboyant flowers and scent of lavender are the perfect gift for this sign. The twins’ famous dual personality is matched by the many uses of the flowers, which are full of beauty and scent, whether fresh or dried and preserved.
It’s not always easy to find fresh lavender flowers, but you can gift lavender sachets or lavender-based fragrances and oils.
Subtle, imaginative, emotional, and a little prickly, shy Cancerians match their zodiac flower, the white rose, perfectly. The classic look and scent appeal to the sign’s fondness for the known and familiar, with strong undertones of nostalgia.
The Buttercream makes the perfect floral gift for a Cancerian, with their signature white vanilla roses mixed with lisianthus and snapdragons for a dreamy, romantic, and fragrant bouquet.
You probably guessed this one. The bright, confident, and affectionate nature of Leos is expressed in the happy golden color of sunflowers growing tall on a summer’s day. Like their zodiac flower, Leos love the limelight and have a strong loyalty to those they love.
The ideal gift for a sunny and flamboyant Leo is The Sonny, with a colorful splash of sunflowers, baby’s breath, and Ruscus that will brighten up the whole house.
Shy beauty is the common note for Virgos and their zodiac flower, the golden buttercup. The Virgo’s passion for neatness, precision, and beauty is reflected in the elegant design of the flowers, whose wildness symbolizes the hidden fun-loving side of this sign.
Libra is all about balance, which makes the classic roses their perfect zodiac flower. Both inspire love and respect universally, and roses also reflect the sign’s warmth and passion for justice. Like the rose, Libras fit into any setting as if it were made for them.
The intense color and scent of geraniums align with the magnetic Scorpio personality. Likewise, the bunched clusters of symmetrical flowers symbolize the sign’s tendency to mystery and secretiveness, as well as the unexpected side that Scorpios share only with those closest to them.
Cheerful, generous, and adventurous, Sagittarians are a fire sign well symbolized by carnations with their bright colors and strong fragrance. They will always stand out but remain approachable and even goofy, just like the carnations that appear everywhere, especially at weddings.
Capricorns are the steady, hardy, dependable ones, like their zodiac flower, which can survive in the cold, and even in freezing temperatures, with beauty and grace. They are hard-working warriors who don’t mind showing off the results of their labors!
The orchid is the perfect flower for Aquarius, the dreamers and visionaries of the zodiac. Its exotic appeal matches the Aquarian taste for adventure and eccentricity, and the hardy blooms belie their fragile appearance. Aquarians, too, have a dreamy personality that hides the core of persistence and diligence that gets things done.
This is another match-up that’s easy to guess, as this gentle, amiable water sign goes with the flow just like water lilies with their somewhat unearthly beauty. They’re highly affectionate and imaginative and love the quieter spots out of the limelight, like the shallows and edges of lakes and streams where water lilies are found.
Once you have your friend's and family’s zodiac signs matched up to their flowers, you’ll be able to pick the best gifts for them. Their zodiac flowers will delight and inspire them for a long time after the holidays have become a happy memory.
