February Flower - Violet

The flower for the month of February is the Violet - the Viola species are small perennial plants (some are annuals or small shrubs).

Often grown for their ornamental flowers, they are a beautiful, delicate flower with a scent that is called "flirty", as it comes and goes.

The flower of St. Valentine is actually the Violet, not the Rose. Persecuted by a Roman emperor, and in prison, this Christian priest continued his good works by crushing the violet blossoms growing outside his cell to make ink with which to write on leaves; a dove delivered the notes to his friends.

Violets, linked to faithfulness, and romantic love, remain a symbol of St. Valentine and is a beautiful offering between lovers.

What a lovely gift for those having been born in the month of February!
