JULY BIRTH FLOWER

Birth flowers

Did you know you have birth flowers, depending on the period in which you were born? These are the two birth flowers most often compared with July.

Larkspur

Larkspur is the common name given to continuing species of Delphinium and seasonal species of Consolida. Delphinium, in turn, comes from the Latin word for dolphin and refers to the fitness of the nectary, the nectar-filled spur of the flower. And larkspur? That’s because it follows the bird’s long hind claw.

 

The larkspur

 

is the perfect cottage garden plant, fine at the back of a mixed border. It does well in Britain’s relatively cool vacations and may struggle in the course. This is a member of the buttercup family – you’ll see the resemblance if you look exactly at the leaves. It hardly seems reasonable, but these tall, graceful spikes of blue, purple, pink, or white flowers are highly toxic.

No wallflower, this. The larkspur is the good looking, showily dressed party guest who reaches the middle of the room and sows the limelight.

Given as a birth flower for July, the larkspur imports love and joy.

Water lily

Water lily

The water lily family, Nymphaeaceae, is native to torrid and temperate regions of the world, including the UK. British natives such as Nymphaea alba look exotic, yet remain surprisingly strong, flower for six months a year, and cover up to nine square meters of water.

There are also little species, with teacup-sized flowers that will grow in a small bowl and make a great tabletop or porch water feature.

At the opposite end of the scale is the amazing giant Victoria, the world’s largest water lily. This resident of the Amazon region has tea tray-like flowers up to three meters in diameter and caused a huge stir when it made its public debut in Britain.

architect and member of parliament Joseph Paxton was the first to bring it to flower and later used its ribbed leaves as the inspiration for the Crystal Palace.

As one of the two birth shoots for July, the water flower is full of symbolic importance in many cultures. It is particularly associated with rebirth and wisdom.
