April Birth Flowers: The Daisy and The Sweet Pea

Much like gemstones and zodiac signs, your birth month is linked to a specific flower, and you might be wondering, “what is April’s birth flower?” Well, April showers bring two birth flowers! Those who celebrate their special day this month can commemorate the occasion with not one but two gorgeous blooms: daisies and sweet peas. Here’s everything you need to know about the birth flowers of April: 

What is April’s Birth Flower Meaning? 

Known for their delicate white petals and bright golden yellow center, daisies symbolize innocence, purity, fertility and transformation. They further epitomize the childlike joy and playfulness that springtime breezes and blooms inspire. While the most common daisies are white, you can also find them in red, yellow and purple. A fun fact about this cheerful bloom: Daisy flowers open toward the sun during the day and close at night.

On the other side of the garden, sweet peas symbolize gratitude and pleasure. With their richly colored, delicate petals, these blissful blooms have an elegant aesthetic that pairs well with their sweet fragrance. Sweet peas grow in several shades, including purple, blue, red, pink, white and peach. Some cultivators even breed these blooms with multicolor swirls, stripes and streaks. However, the one color you’ll never see in a sweet pea is yellow.
