Official Flowers of June

June’s birth month flowers are among the most fragrant of all, the rose and the honeysuckle. Learn more about the meaning of these colorful beauties.


The Rose

There’s a reason that roses have inspired poets and painters for centuries. And if you only know about “grocery store” roses, think again.

There are roses for every imaginable taste, from climbing roses and shrubs to long-stemmed roses.

Symbolically, the rose has more meanings than one can count!

  • A pink rose means perfect happiness, while a red rose means “I
    love you.”
  • A white rose signifies innocence, purity, and
    new beginnings.
  • A yellow rose conveys jealousy.

A bouquet of roses means sincere gratitude, whereas a single rose amplifies the meaning of the color (a single red rose means “I REALLY love you”).


Birthday Flowers: Roses

Do you want to send roses as a gift but not too sure how to get the best ones?
Here’s the key: pick fresh roses. But how? Here’s a quick guide that’s worth noting.

  • Avoid making a mistake of buying roses that have been at the flower shop for so long.
    Pick the ones with crisp and firm petals, as these are a good indication of freshness.
  • Do not pick roses in full bloom. As much as possible, select roses with buds that
    have not opened yet and mix them with opened buds. Doing so will ensure different bloom phases.
  • Pick roses with strong, long stems and green, healthy leaves. These roses are long-lasting.

Roses typically last at least a week in a vase, and could even last longer with proper cut flower care and maintenance. Using flower food, changing out the water regularly, cutting the stems, and pruning are some of the ways to prolong a rose flower’s vase life.


The other June flower is honeysuckle, which is a strong symbol for the everlasting bonds of love.

Honeysuckle flowers are magnets for hummingbirds! Honeysuckle flowers and vines also suit bouquets and floral arrangements. The flowers have different colors, which vary from white to yellow, pink, and red. They are fragrant and attract pollinators such as butterflies and hummingbirds.
