December’s Birthday Blossom is the beautiful Narcissus. This Birthday Blossom is promising, youthful and joyful.
The narcissus flower, whose scientific and common names are the same, is frequently linked to the Greek myth of Narcissus who became so obsessed with his own reflection in the water that he leaned over too far and drowned. Legend says that the narcissus plant sprang up where he died.
No one really knows if this is where the name came from, but we do know that the narcissus represents youth and joy.
On a cold, gray winter day, what better way to give the promise of the springtime to come. A gift of narcissus will warm the coldest winter day.
