“Maybe because I'm a Taurus, I like to watch plants grow.” — Bill Kreutzmann
Did you know that there are different types of flowers associated with each horoscope? Flowers make the perfect gift for every occasion, and one way to create an intimate and heartfelt connection with the recipient is to personalize the floral arrangement according to their horoscope.
There are 12 (technically 13) unique zodiac signs, each with its own special elements, symbols, and compatibilities. The month of May has been synonymous with flowers throughout history, and many cultures celebrate May Day. As you ponder Mother's Day or birthday gift ideas this May, we suggest sending a special arrangement that celebrates the beauty of the season and the uniqueness of the Taurus in your life.
Best Flowers for the Taurus Zodiac Sign
Ruled by Venus, the Taurus horoscope is closely associated with love and caring. The Taurus zodiac, which includes those born between April 21 and May 21, has many different flowers associated with its cycle, including poppies, foxglove flowers, and roses. Although the sign is known for its bullish energy, at their core, those born under the Taurus sign are considered warm-hearted and romantic.
Lilies, often associated with purity and fertility, are considered to be the May birth flower, but they don’t quite deliver the same message as roses, which are a more universal symbol of love and affection, making them appealing to the romantic nature of the Taurus.
Roses also represent many of the most admirable qualities of this zodiac sign, such as loyalty, generosity, and simplicity. These common traits of the Taurus horoscope are also important characteristics associated with motherhood, which always falls within Taurus season, making roses ideally suited for the Taurus mother.
Which Flowers Suit a Taurus?
Representing an affinity for beauty and nature, the Taurus sign has a strong connection to plants and gardening. Flowers are a time-tested gift that appeals to their sense of commitment. We suggest three options that should be given priority.
Taurus’ main birth flower is the poppy. These tenacious flowers span a large number of species and are known to reseed themselves. In the tradition of honoring past and present veterans, commemorative red poppies usually show up around Memorial Day, but they’re also popular on Mother’s Day.
Roses are another flower strongly associated with this star sign. Roses symbolize passion, beauty, and romance, but their thorns offer a warning to handle them with care and respect; the same principle applies to a Taurus.
The last option is foxglove flowers. Known for their towering blooms, these sleek, gorgeous plants are common in many private gardens. However, they can be quite toxic to pets or small children, so be careful when gifting them.
Not surprisingly, due to their affinity for gardening and association with Venus, green is an important color to the Taurus. With roses, green symbolizes richness, abundance, and bounty and can be a perfect expression of your affection to the recipient.
"But you could not have a green rose. But perhaps somewhere in the world you could." — James Joyce
