What Roses are Given in June?

For the month of June and for anyone who has a birthday, you can choose any shade under the sun for your gift. Yellow roses are a particularly popular offering for June birthdays since they symbolize happiness and joy, which are beautiful sentiments for a birthday gift.

One of the fun features is the variety of colors available. If you know someone’s favorite color, there’s probably a rose to match! Maybe your mom loves purple. Imagine an arrangement of pastel hydrangeas surrounding some delicate purple roses.

You can also give any number of roses for your birthday gift. If you have a dear friend at work that you’ve known for years, a small arrangement of twilight roses would be a lovely addition to her desk. If you’ve been married for many years, a beautifully large display of 24 red roses would be a gorgeous and exquisite gift.

Why Do We Give Roses in June?

As one of the most popular flowers for gifts, roses are lovely at any time of the year, but they’re very special during the month of June since they’re the official flower. One of the reasons they were chosen as the official flower for June was because they were in bloom during the month which meant they were easier to find for gifts and decorating.

However, it wasn’t until quite recently that they were widely available for everyone to enjoy. Just a few hundred years ago, they were rare and cultivated only by the very rich. Roses were considered so valuable at one time that they were actually used as currency!

Whether you show up at the door with a bouquet of flowers, or you send them across the country, roses are a fun and elegant birthday gift. If you know someone with a June birthday, make gift shopping easy by giving them a beautiful bouquet.
