What Is June’s Birth Flower?

June’s birth month flower is the rose. Not any rose in particular, which is a good thing because there are well over 30,000 varieties of roses worldwide!
Generally, roses are categorized into three main types: wild roses (or species roses), old garden roses and modern garden roses. Wild roses go way, way, back. They are thought to be 35 million years old and are the source of all other rose varieties. Their flowers often have only a simple row of petals. Old roses, sometimes called heritage or historic roses, are roses bred before 1867. Last, but certainly not least, modern roses come in a variety of sizes, colors, and new forms like mini and landscape roses. Did you know roses are also the national flower?
Roses not only look many different ways, they also come in a multitude of scents ranging from classic rose to spicy—and even fruity. Check out these fragrant roses you can add to your garden.
What Are the Meanings of June’s Birth Flower?
The rose is generally known to represent love, beauty and devotion. But roses have the unique power to carry their own special meanings based on their individual color. Red roses, which are a popular gift on anniversaries and holidays like Valentine’s Day, are the symbol of love and romance. Yellow roses symbolize friendship. And white roses mean innocence, purity or sympathy. Learn more about the many rose color meanings.

The honeysuckle is the other June birth flower. A symbol of happiness and affection, this plant produces colorful trumpet-shaped flowers that have a sweet scent that’s especially strong during the evening. Many types of honeysuckle are invasive—but the trumpet honeysuckle is one exception. Not only is a gorgeous addition to any garden, the trumpet honeysuckle is a favorite for hummingbirds.
