Birth Flower for November

Birth flowers are blossoms that are associated with each month of the year, and first were established in the 18th century.

These birth flowers are part of the language of flowers, known as floriography. Just like birthstones, birth flowers represent various meanings and characteristics that also apply to those born in the month.

While each month typically has two birth flowers, November only has one: the chrysanthemum.

What is the November Birthflower?

November Birthflower - Chrysanthemum

Chrysanthemums were first cultivated in China in the 15th century BC. There they were used as a remedy for headaches and inflammation.

Today, chrysanthemums are popular around the world and known for being bright and cheerful flowers. The National Chrysanthemum Society in America has come up with a classification system that lists different shapes of this flower, including spoon, spider, quilled, and pompom. How fun is that?

Popular Showy Blooms

Chrysanthemum, also known as "mums" or "chrysanths," is a popular and widely cultivated flower that is prized for its showy blooms and long blooming period. Chrysanthemums are native to Asia and are now widely grown throughout the world.

The flowers are available in a wide range of colors, including white, yellow, red, pink, and purple, and come in a variety of shapes, including single, semi-double, and fully double blooms. Chrysanthemums are a popular choice for cut flower arrangements and garden beds, and are also used in the creation of dried flower arrangements.

The plant itself is bushy and can grow to be several feet tall, with large, dark green leaves. The flowers are typically produced in late fall and early winter, making it a valuable addition to any garden. With their long blooming period and showy blooms, chrysanthemums are a popular choice for gardeners and flower enthusiasts alike.
