September’s Birthday Blossom is the lovely Aster. This Birthday Blossom is patient, elegant and dainty.
The scientific name asteraceae and the common name aster both come from the Greek word for star. The aster’s star-like flowers can be found in a variety of colors such as white, red, pink, purple, lavender and blue, with mostly yellow centers.
In ancient times, it was thought that the perfume from the aster’s leaves could drive away evil serpents. Today they are known as a talisman of love and a symbol of patience.
Asters perfectly capture the beautiful gifts of color nature faithfully gives us every fall. A gift of asters is the perfect way to share fall’s vibrant colors or bring a touch of elegance to any room.
