July Birth Flower: Larkspur and Water Lily

Celebrating a July birthday comes with many advantages: beautiful weather, fresh food, and plenty of outdoor activities. Whether it’s your own birthday or you’re celebrating for one of your closest friends or family members, you may consider gifting an arrangement of flowers specific to the month of their birth.

But what is the birth flower of July? Larkspur and Water Lily are the two July flower options that represent the beauty and sweetness of this special summer month. Read on to learn more about these flowers and ways you can incorporate them into a July birthday celebration:


These tall, gorgeous flowers can overtake a large, lush field, offering a gorgeous gaze of pink, purple, deep blue, mauve or white when surrounded by greenery. Pink larkspur is the symbol of fickle love, purple larkspur represents first love, and white larkspur is the emblem of happiness. You may choose which color to gift based on the relationship you have with your loved one, or you can simply pick up an arrangement based on the gorgeous hue itself. This July birth flower makes a great gift no matter what.

Water Lily

Also known as the lotus flower, the water lily is the other July birth flower. It represents a pure, open heart, much like the way its blossom opens almost effortlessly on a lily pad. While it’s not common to be able to buy a water lily arrangement, you can gift a water lily for someone to grow in their backyard. These flowers are as tough as they are beautiful so they can grow in a pond or tub on a patio. Check your local gardening store for this July birth flower!
