Countries select flowers to represent the months of the year based upon history, literature, folklore, and custom. There is no universal floral calendar.
Therefore, while there are many variations, The Botanical Emporium has assembled a calendar of flowers that are popular choices for each month.
For the birthstones, several gems are possible for each month. The suggestions noted below are by the International Colored Gemstone Association and the Gemological Institute of America.
Flowers and gemstones are beautiful. You select the most appropriate for your gift.
