Asters – Birth Flower for September

Asters are the birth flower for September; they are known as having magical love and are symbolic of elegance. In September the colours of the landscape change into beautiful fall tones of reds, oranges and yellows.   Asters are great birthday flowers to send someone who has a birthday in September, choose from an assortment of fall coloured vase or basket arrangements.

Asters are a popular perennial that come in many varieties (there are more than 600), they grow in a bush like shape with star shaped flowers that have lance like leaves. Aster comes from the Greek word for “star”. They have a texture that is very lush with deep rich colours and fit in with the beauty of wildflowers. They are a tough reliable perennial, and make great cut flowers that are long lasting. One of the loveliest aspects of having a garden full of flowers is the attraction for butterflies. Asters with their multiple amounts of flowers are known for attracting butterflies. Butterflies will be attracted to your garden if you have nectar plants for adult butterflies and host plants for their larvae. Asters are plants that provide nectar and pollen.

In past ancient history the aster was believed to drive away evil spirits by burning the leaves of asters which gave off a perfume. Asters are flowers that bloom in late summer and early fall. They have daisy like flowers that bloom in colours of pink, rosy – lilac, deep purple, bronze, yellow and rusts, they are often favourites with fall and autumn flower arrangements as their colour tones of oranges and bronze fit the perfect colour schemes of fall flower arrangements. Thanksgiving decorations usually include the fall colour tones of asters, as they bloom in September and October.

Orchid Plants – Types of Orchids

Here is some orchid trivia: Did you know that vanilla comes from orchid plants? The vanilla “bean” is actually a pod that is produced from the vanilla orchid plant known as vanilla planifolia which is a species of vanilla orchid.

The vanilla planifolia is found in the West Indies and Central America.   It prefers tropical climates that are wet and hot. The flowers of vanilla orchid plants are greenish-yellow and they only last for one day. If fruit is desired from the plant the flowers must be pollinated manually during the morning. To produce fruit the flowers must be hand pollinated as there is less than 1% chance that the flowers will pollinate on their own. Fruits are long pods that are produced only on mature plants. The pods will mature after five months at which time they are harvested and cured. The curing process ferments and dries the pods with minimizing the loss of essential oils. Vanilla extract is obtained from this part of the plant.

There are several different types of orchids and at All flowers and gifts we have beautiful phalaenopsis orchid plants that are great gifts for all occasions. Phalaenopsis orchids are thick leaved plants with arching sprays of elegant blooms. They range in colours from white, yellow and pink /purple tones.

T98-2A - Teleflora's Opulent Orchids

Opulent Orchids – White Phalaenopsis Orchids Are Elegant & Beautiful

Growing orchids is not difficult; here are some steps on how to grow orchids:

  • Light – phalaenopsis orchids like low light and can thrive in an east window or a shaded west or south facing exposure. Orchid plants do not like direct sunlight.
  • Water – the phalaenopsis orchid grows from a single stem and does not have a large water storing capability and as such has a low tolerance for drought. During the growth season water the plant when you see the exposed roots turning silvery white which would be usually weekly. During this stage try to keep the potting media slightly damp. When the flowering stage starts decrease the watering to every other week. In higher the humidity it is important to maintain a good air flow around the roots and leaves.
  • Fertilizer – During the growing stage, fertilize the orchid plants weekly with an orchid fertilizer. Decrease the frequency to once a month during the winter and flowering stage.
  • Temperature – the phalaenopsis orchid likes temperatures between 75 – 85 degrees during the active growth stage, but they can adapt well to house temperatures of 65 – 70 degrees.
  • Blooming – Phalaenopsis orchids bloom typically in the late winter and early spring. They have long lasting flowers that are held on arching branches. The flowers of Phalaenopsis orchids can last for many weeks.

December Birth Month Flower – Narcissus

The birth month flower for December is the Narcissus. There are several meanings for Narcissus which include conceit and self love. The narcissus or commonly called daffodil is a tall standing single stemmed flower that can grow up to 24 inches tall. It has slender flat strap like leaves that can be 3 inches to 20 inches tall. The narcissus is a late winter to early spring bloomer.  The flowers can range in style from single or double trumpet shaped and come in a variety of colors such as orange, peach, pink, red, white, yellow and bicoloured. They can do well in Zones 4-9 hardy. Soil type should be sandy loam with high average moisture, good drainage and high – medium fertility such as 5.5 – 6.5 pH.

The Narcissus does well in garden beds, borders, containers, and slopes. They look great in cottage, shade and woodland gardens. They are excellent cutting flowers and are popular in early spring arrangements. They also have a resistance to deer, rodents and diseases.   They are easy to grow.

Daffodil Dreams

Narcissus are bulbs, and can be divided easily, these bulbs produce offsets which can be carefully separated from the mother bulb. Bulbs are ready to lift after they flower and the foliage dies back.  Remove the bulbs from the ground with a spade fork and discard bulbs that are damaged. Shake any soil from the bulbs and have them dry out for a few days on a wire rack in a dry, warm and well – ventilated area. Dust the narcissus bulbs with a fungicide to prevent any mold developing and store them in a dry garden peat moss or cleaned, washed and dried sand. The best area to store the bulbs would be with humidity of 25 percent or less and temperatures of 45 to 50 degrees F (7 – 10 C), such as in an attached garage or cool basement.

November Birth Month Flowers – Chrysanthemums

The birth month flower for November is the Chrysanthemum. They are perennial flowering plants that come in a variety of colors and are native to northeastern Europe and Asia. Florists often refer to them as mums. They are very hardy and are often used in floral designs. With the variety of colors that are available they can be used year round for all seasonal flower arrangements. Chrysanthemums are bush like in composition and have dark evergreen leaves. Their stems comprise of multiple blooms clustered on one stem. If you have them in an outdoor garden they will bloom from summer to autumn.

The Chrysanthemum name comes from two Greek words – gold (Chrysos) and flower (anthemon). Their meaning symbolizes cheerfulness and optimism. In relation to Feng Shui chrysanthemums bring happiness and laughter in the house.

Chrysanthemums are very popular flowers that are often combined with other flowers to make lovely flower arrangements. These flowers are great for birthday gifts. As seen with country chrysanthemums this arrangement is a perfect birthday flower gift for anyone who has a November birthday, the beautiful fall color tones can be seen here with the combination of a variety of mums.

Thanksgiving Flowers

Canadian Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October, and this year it will be celebrated on Monday October 13, 2014. This holiday celebration began back in 1957. Family gatherings are a large part of the celebration which usually includes a special Thanksgiving Dinner. Tables are decorated with fall colours and table centerpieces of fresh flowers are enjoyed. A common Thanksgiving floral centerpiece is that of the cornucopia or “horn of plenty” that is filled with lovely fall coloured flowers. Front door entrances are also often decorated with items such as door wreaths.

Marigolds are used extensively with autumn floral design, there rich colour tones are very representative of October. Marigolds are also the birth month flower for October.
