Flowers of Christmas and their flower meanings
Lily – I chose the lily for its symbolism of Christ in his purity. Lilies are often mentioned as well in the Christian faith so I chose to include the lily in this coloring page.
Poinsettia – The poinsettia was considered a symbol of purity to the ancient Aztecs. These flowers naturally grow in South America and Mexico. And in modern day the shape of the petals symbolize the star of Bethlehem and the red color symbolize the blood of Christ. For these reasons the poinsetta (pronounced poin-setta with no “t” in the middle) is one of the most common Christmas flowers.
Holly – The holly is the birth flower of December. As the holly also stays green and the berries are red in the winter it is often used in décor and floral arrangements.
Conifer – Conifer cones or Pine cones are a staple decoration for Christmas with their stems or on their own. They have been made into crafts, painted or placed in vases for simple Christmas décor.
Christmas Cactus – The Christmas cactus is steadily becoming a common Christmas plant for gift giving. The fun part about this type of cactus is it only blooms at Christmas. There are also Thanksgiving cactus and Easter cactus as well that bloom at their own times.
Pine Stem – The pine stem is a symbolism of the Christmas tree, a long standing tradition of Christmas time. Pine trees symbolize Christmas with their ever green color and shape growing upward. Christmas pine trees are fresh or artificial and decorated with lights, bulbs, garlands, and more.
Rosemary – I included rosemary for its similar shape to the pine and smell. Rosemary is also often included in floral arrangements. I also thought it was fun to include rosemary as it is often associated with its flavoring of meats and the association to Christmas dinners.
Rose – Roses are often included in Christmas flower arrangements because of their red and white varieties. But I also love the symbolism of love and the love we give around the holiday season.
Chrysanthemum- Often called a mum, are present often during Thanksgiving and the birth flower of November. I chose to include it still because of its symbolism of devoted love and happiness.
