December Names of Flowers

December names of flowers according to traditional English, Chinese and Japanese calendars.

(In the illustration the traditional English flower is closest to the bottom, the traditional Chinese flower is closest to the middle and the traditional Japanese flower is at the top.)

Flowers and plants representing December shine in festive colors, from the glossy berries and shiny leaves of Holly and the crepe-paper look of Poppies to the trumpet-clusters found on Paulownias. Though the sentiments attached to them may not reflect their beauty (the Chinese call Poppies the emblem of evil and dissipation at this time of year), the flowers still brighten this deep winter month.

English Calendar = Holly

Chinese Calendar = Poppy (A Fu Jung) Emblem of Evil and Dissipation

Japanese Calendar = Paulownia (Kiri)
