THERE are two birth flowers for September — Asters­ and the Morning Glory.

Asters come in a great variety of colours, including red, white, orange and various shades of pink and purple, making them one of the most popular flowers for use in floral arrangements.

One popular myth attributes the origin of the aster flower to the Greek God Virgo who was saddened by the lack of stars in the sky. Upset, Virgo began to cry. As she cried, lovely aster flowers began to grow on each spot where her tears landed.

During the Victorian era, asters became very popular. Victorians were fascinated by floriography - the language of flowers - and would use the color, type and arrangement of various flowers to send secret coded messages to one another.

Asters conveyed feelings of love, devotion and daintiness and are associated with qualities of faith, wisdom and valor as well as powerful love and positive emotions.Pink flowers are a symbol of elegance and grace, symbolising subtleness, romance, beauty and femininity.

The Morning Glory is a flower that blooms in the morning hours however, by the time the sun has fallen, the flower has die. Each morning will give birth to a brand new flower on the plant.

Many species of Morning Glory have seeds that contain LSA, a drug that is up to 10% as potent as LSD.

To discourage the growing of Morning Glory specifically for drugs, the seeds are specially treated with a chemical that cannot be washed off and will cause vomiting and sickness if ingested.

Blue Morning Glory flowers are the most common and symbolise trust, responsibility, honor and loyalty whilst purple Morning Glory flowers symbolise affection, subtleness, romance and grace and the white flower symbolises religion, trust, kindness and goodness.
