The rose is the June birthflower. Rose is known as the flower of passion as the ancient Greeks believed that Aphrodite the goddess of love gave a rose to Eros the god of love.
Carnations have been cultivated for the last 2,000 years. Originally from the East, these fragrant flowers symbolise pride, beauty, fascination, love and distinction. They are now associated with January as the month's birth flower.
Freesias are symbolic of innocence. They are one of the most loved and elegantly scented flowers. The one-sided sprigs carried on a single slim stem give them a certain delicacy, which is common to both the single and double flowered varieties.
