What is the September Birthflower?

September Birthflower - Aster

September’s birth flower is the Aster. Asters come in bright colours with long, thin petals around a bright yellow centre.

Asters typically bloom in the fall and appear in clusters. The name for this flower, aster, comes from a Greek word for“star.” In ancient times, this flower was also thought to have magical powers.

All about Asters

Aster is a beautiful and versatile flower that is widely cultivated for its showy blooms and long blooming period. Asters belong to the daisy family and are native to the Northern Hemisphere, where they are often found in meadows and wildflower gardens.

The flowers are typically composed of many small, daisy-like blooms that are surrounded by ray petals, and come in a range of colors, including pink, purple, blue, and white. Asters 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 hardy and easy to grow, and typically blooms in late summer to early fall, making it a valuable addition to any garden.

The leaves of the aster are typically long and narrow, and the plant can grow to be several feet tall. With their long blooming period and ability to attract pollinators, asters are a popular choice for gardeners and flower enthusiasts alike.

Celebrate your birth month with this pretty September birthflower necklace featuring an aster petal pendant and agate birthstone.

The Aster stands for love, faith and wisdom.
