December’s flowers may be very different from each other—one being a bulb and the other an evergreen—but they both symbolize hope.
What Are the Flowers for the Month of December?
The December birth flowers are holly and narcissus (specifically, the paperwhite).
Holly symbolizes a wish for domestic happiness.
Although some animals and birds enjoy holly berries, they are semi-toxic to humans.
The good news is that deer tend to avoid eating holly due to their sharp leaves, which makes them a deer-resistant plant for gardens.
The Narcissus (Paperwhite)
Narcissus conveys that you want your beloved to stay just the way they are.
While there are many types of flowers in the genus Narcissus (including the daffodil), the paperwhite is the winter-growing variety and the birth flower for December.
