According to the
language of flowers, introduced to England in the early 18th century by Mary Wortley Montague, flowers had meanings. Each month has a symbolic flower whose characteristics may be "inherited" by anyone born in that month. Later authors have inspired by this tradition to create lists that associate a birthday flower with each day of the year.
