Best Flowers for Each Zodiac Sign in Spring
Fiery & Enthusiastic: Aries (March 21 – April 20)
As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries are born leaders full of confidence and contagious energy. Being a fire sign, adventurous Aries are risk takers who love bold statements. They will adore a fiery bouquet of red roses. Stunning tiger lilies will also match the Arians’ enthusiasm and appeal to their love of unconventional things.
Headstrong & Earthy: Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
The mighty bull Taurus might be best known for being stubborn and practical, but there’s another side to this sign. Extremely romantic and sensuous, Taureans harbor an equally strong love for pleasure, comfort, and beauty. Cater to Taurus’s sensuous traits with flowers that appeal to their full range of senses. For instance, send a bouquet of sweet-scented lilies or long-lasting violets. Nature-loving Taureans will also enjoy an edible bouquet that appeals to their love of the tangible and practical.
Intellectual & Adaptable: Gemini (May 22 – June 21)
The zodiac sign of the twins, Geminis are the most dualistic personality. They are quick-witted, playful, and sociable when in their element. Outside their comfort zones, they can become the opposite, shy and waiting for a moment to shine. A bouquet that’s perfectly suited to multi-faceted Gemini is a mixed arrangement with carnations and chrysanthemums. They convey many sentiments and adapt to the most sophisticated or laid-back environments, just like their astrological counterparts. With the ability to convey a wide range of meanings depending on their color, roses are another match for the twins’ disposition.
Best Flowers for Each Zodiac Sign in Summer
Emotional & Nurturing: Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Tough on the outside, but gentle inside, Cancerians are true to their symbol, the crab. One of the most emotional signs, they are very family oriented and nurturing. They prefer the flowers that appeal to their sensitivity and romanticism. The delicate, long-lasting beauty of irises is sure to touch this zodiac sign’s sensitive side. Another way to melt your Cancer’s hard exterior is to spoil her with a spa gift basket for Women’s Day. You’ll deliver the right mix of practicality and thoughtfulness this sign appreciates so much.
Creative & Faithful: Leo (July 23 – August 22)
True to their symbol the Lion, Leos are majestic beings. They are often creative, passionate and faithful. Natural leaders, they prefer bold, flamboyant flowers which reflect their strength and dignity. A bouquet of bold sunflowers matches this fire sign’s generous personality like no other. With grand proportions and symbolism rooted in happiness and warmth, sunflowers capture Leo’s confidence and loving spirit. Orchids are also a good choice for these dramatic people who are happy to make a spectacle of any bouquet they receive.
Intellectual & Meticulous: Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Behind the reserved exterior of a Virgo, there hides a meticulous personality with an impressive intellect. Modest in nature, Virgos usually prefer subtle colors. A graceful arrangement of delicate tulips or airy hydrangea will delight this zodiac sign that has a tendency towards perfectionism and simplicity. Surprise this practical and serious earth sign, with a bouquet that appeals to their lighthearted side. Lush asters or playful chrysanthemums will incite Virgo’s imagination and appeal to their fun-loving side.
Best Flowers for Each Zodiac Sign in Fall
Charming & Harmonious: Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libras are naturally kind and charming and gentle. Associated with the scales of justice, they thrive on balance and harmony in all aspects of their lives. A lucky bamboo or a bonsai tree is a great Women’s Day gift for this classy lot who will not settle for less. Libras will also appreciate the expressiveness of exotic alstroemerias that bring warmth into any home, much like the charismatic zodiac sign. Complement your flower arrangement with a romantic candle with a subtle floral scent and your special Libran will be over the moon.
Powerful & Passionate: Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios are the boldest of all the zodiac signs. They’re passionate, focused, and possessive all at the same time. Flowers that have a strong magnetic pull while exuding power and elegance fit Scorpio’s intense personality. Red, passionate blooms reflect the nature of this zodiac sign and will make a great choice for any Women’s Day bouquet. Try a grand arrangement of lush bold peonies that embodies both a sense of romance and power. Also considered as a symbol of good fortune, peonies are exactly what the doctor ordered to match the Scorpio’s fierce potential. Bold and sweet gardenias with their intensely alluring fragrance also promise to make your recipient’s heart race, in a good way.
Positive & Easy-going: Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
The centaur (a half-human, half-horse from Greek mythology) is the symbol for this zodiac sign. Sagittarians are often gifted with it all: looks, brains, and brawn. Confident, with an easy-going and optimistic personality, they tend to be quite popular. Adventurous by nature, they will appreciate something unexpected. Capture the Sagittarian’s multidimensional personality with an edible bouquet – an equally multi-dimensional gift they’ll adore. If you want to give something symbolic, an arrangement of vibrant carnations will reflect your recipient’s strength and stamina while the unpretentious beauty of these flowers will appeal to the glass-half-full outlook of this loveable sign.
Best Flowers for Each Zodiac Sign in Winter
Ambitious & Practical: Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
The hard-working Capricorn is one of the most stable and serious of the zodiac signs. Although pragmatism and self-discipline are deeply rooted in their nature, Capricorns possess a great sense of humor and appreciate a little indulgence. The steady nature of Capricorns make them ideal caretakers, hence a potted plant will make the best gift choice for this zodiac sign. Consequently, long-lasting African violets, a symbol of faithfulness with just a hint of opulence and sensuality, may just be the Capricorn’s perfect match. They’re family-oriented, and enjoy spending time with their loved ones, especially at a good meal. So, if you really want to blow your recipient away, complement your flowers with a gourmet gift basket or wine, and this will be her best Women’s Day gift yet.
Independent & Loyal: Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
An air sign with an honest and intuitive nature, Aquarians are exceptionally committed and faithful. One of the most progressive and self-motivated, they have a taste for the unusual. Exotic flowers are best suited to tantalize the original Aquarius. The graceful beauty and artful form of orchids, with symbolism tied to love and strength, will resonate with this birth sign’s personality like no other, except, maybe, for passionate gladioli. Also, since Aquarians are aligned with the color blue, elegant irises are also a wonderful fit. To appeal to the Aquarius’s love of loyalty and adventure, give them a vibrant succulent garden.
Creative & Compassionate: Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Level-headed, affectionate, artistic, and dreamy is how you can describe a typical Piscean. Being a water sign makes them generous and compassionate souls who prefer to give rather than take. Pisceans like to keep things classy and can be uncomfortable with grand gestures and showy gifts. The sublime beauty of the calla lily is the perfect match for a Piscean’s refined taste. The long lines of the elegant white blossoms will remind the Pisces of the ways they are working towards creating more compassion in the world. Alstroemeria, with their delicate petals, capture just the right mix of lavish beauty and quiet splendor and will reignite sensuality within the thoughtful Pisces.
It might be easy to pick a luscious bouquet of roses as a gift for Women’s Day and be spot on. But now you can send flowers that actually suit your recipient’s zodiac traits. Next time you’re choosing a bouquet for a special someone in your life don’t forget this list of flowers for each zodiac sign!
