June Birth Flowers

June is National Rose Month, and also one of the June birth flowers! Rose, or Rosa, has so many meanings stemming from their endless hues. Hundreds of species and thousands of cultivars make up this obscenely popular shrub. Roses appeal to nearly everyone - most landscapes include a rose bush, commercial perfumeries use them to create scents, their fruit (known as hips) is used to manufacture vitamin C in products as well as pressed for the oil to use in skin care products. Some flower colors indicate love, admiration, enthusiasm, innocence, and joy.


Honeysuckle, or Lonicera, is also a June Birth Flower, which is very much associated with June and summertime. They are bright, refreshing, and deliciously scented. Hummingbirds love the flowers but be wary of the invasive species such as L. japonica, L. maackii, L. morrowii, and L. tatarica.
