Violet - February's Beautiful Birth Flower!

February is here and there is love in the air, as Valentine's Day is only a few weeks away. With so much focus on one of the year's biggest holidays, the rose is the flower that has gained most of the popularity during this month. However, it isn't the only beautiful flower to use for your occasions and events beyond celebrating Valentine's in February.

The violet is one of February's Birth Flowers and is one of the most well-known flowers in the world. The name "violet" is derived from the word 'vias', which means 'wayside'. The flower symbolizes faithfulness, humility and chastity. The history of the violet lies within the origin of the traditions of the Roman Empire, which had birthday celebrations for family and friends. At the gatherings, they would give gifts, including gemstone jewelry, such as the Amethyst and flowers.

During the Victorian era, the Victorians were strongly restricted by the rules of etiquette, when it was considered inappropriate to express feelings of love or affection. The language of flowers, therefore, messages were assigned to specific flowers. The result was a lover could now send flowers to convey a hidden romantic meaning. The white violet would communicate to take a chance with someone. The color violet would mean that that person would always be true.

The violet comes in other colors as well, including blue, yellow, cream, and mauve/violet. It is always delightful to have a flower that has a wide range of colors that you can choose that will be specific to your occasion or event. The violet also has several species, also known as pansies. The sweet-scented violet appears at the end of February and finishes blooming by the end of April also. There are 400 species throughout different areas of the world of this beautiful flower.
