The Larkspur and Water Lily


July's birth flowers—the larkspur and water lily—are dramatic head-turners, with one being the star of water features and the other capable of growing a towering spike of flowers!

The Larkspur

Each color variation of the larkspur has a different meaning:

  • Pink means fickleness
  • White conveys a happy nature
  • Purple normally represents a first love
  • Blue signifies grace

Generally, larkspur indicates strong bonds of love.


The Water Lily

The other July birth flower is the water lily, which symbolizes purity and majesty.

Aside from being lovely in their own right, water lilies are often used in ponds to deter the growth of algae and to shade and cool the water for resident fish and frogs.

Hey, I really like your website and page, but I think you have a delphinium instead of larkspur (Consolida). Are delphiniums a July flower as well, or was it a mistake?
