March Names of Flowers


March 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.)

March flowers span two interesting ends of the hardiness spectrum. English calendars celebrate March with tender violets which can whither and fade if kissed by frost. China, on the other hand, celebrates with tree peonies which have been recorded as living for well over a hundred years. Japan devotes March to cherry blossoms, harbingers of delicious fruit later on in the spring.

English Calendar = Violet

Chinese Calendar = Tree Peony(Mu Tan) symbol of Love and Affection
