The Daffodil in March

Hi there, it’s Ken Bolt from Brant Florist and the birth flower for March is the daffodil, though in some cultures it’s the jonquil instead. The daffodil symbolizes love because the most common colour for the daffodil in the wild is bright yellow, symbolizing the sun of springtime and its warmth as well as the babies that so often come at this time of year in nature.I’m a huge fan of the daffodil. It’s sprightly, loves to “go large,” and is instantly recognized by just about everyone who sees it. Name a person who doesn’t know the meaning behind a daffodil and you’re naming someone who lives a dull life.

Many also see the jonquil as a flower for March, but in Western culture, it is often used in funerals as a conveyor of sympathy, which I feel is counter to the message of spring. Like many flowers, the jonquil has been misrepresented due to our cultural use of it, of course, but this does change its appeal regardless.

What is your favourite springtime flower? There are many of them.

Until next time,

Ken Bolt
