Flower of the Month

September- Aster

The Aster means, "star" in Latin. Asters are the birth flower for September and the herb goddess Venus. Ancient people believed that the odor of the leaves of the aster when burnt drove away serpents. Asters were laid on the graves of French soldiers to symbolize the wish that things had turned out differently. One myth tells that the asters were created from stardust when Virgo looked down from the heavens and wept.

Asters colors means afterthought or a wish that things were different -- except in china where the color signifies fidelity.
