What Are September’s Birth Flowers?

Asters are another birth flower for September

Those born in the month of September are blessed with two birth flowers—morning glories and asters.

Morning glories have distinct heart-shaped leaves and trumpet-shaped flowers that blossom in colorful sprays of magenta, purple, blue, pink and white. Morning glories typically bloom from early summer to the start of fall, right around September. They’re also one of the fastest-growing annual flowers, which is good news for any procrastinating gardeners. Not only will these speedy blooms add bright pops of color to the garden, they also attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

Late season butterflies and hummingbirds are also attracted to aster flowers—September’s other birth flower. Asters, which bloom in late summer and fall, have star-shaped flowers that resemble daisies. Available in a range of colors, the most common asters available in the U.S. are the New England and New York asters.

Don’t miss these other annual flowers that attract hummingbirds.

What Are the Meanings of September’s Birth Flowers?

Morning glories in bloom

The meaning of both September birth flowers is rooted in love. Morning glories are symbols of love and affection. Aster flowers symbolize love, wisdom and faith. The aster flower’s star-shaped blooms inspired its name. Aster comes from the Ancient Greek word “aster” meaning “star.” Other star-related words, like asteroid and asterisk, are derived from the same word.

Now that you know more about September’s birth flowers, we’ve got the perfect gifts for everyone on your September birthday list—from luxuriously soft robes and custom stationary to flower seeds packs and everything in between.
