I and my brother often fight over petty issues. Yesterday we had a major tiff (again) over the TV remote.

Initially, I always wondered why he is always so fierce, but now I know that he is a Leo!

And being fierce, dominant, bold, crisp, sharp, passionate, and full of fire is what a Leo truly stands for. 

I was however wondering about resolving this fight early this time. It’s his birthday month after all.

I mean I can let him win sometimes, especially when his special day is soon to arrive. But what flowers should I gift him?

This question stayed with me for quite a long time as I had never seen him being fond of flowers before.

This is when I started studying Leo flowers. And oh, what a rewarding experience it was!

In this blog, I will share with you all the insights I have acquired about Leo flowers and what flowers you should gift to that special someone who is a Leo in your life.

But before we get to that, let’s first get a glimpse of what the Leo Zodiac Sign is all about!

Leo Zodiac Sign

The fifth sign in the zodiac, Leo is represented by the Lion!

Associated with fire and fire signs, Leos are the kings and queens of the starry maze.

They are very fierce and temperamental in nature. So don’t be mad at yourself if you see yourself getting wild most of the time!

They also are known to be extraordinarily loyal, passionate, and loving. Leos naturally possess leadership skills and artistic abilities.

And guess what I found to be the most related quality of Leos? Their love for drama and chaos.

Well, now I know why my brother is so difficult to deal with at times. However, it’s time to celebrate him and his desire to always bask in the spotlight with some energizing and refreshing flowers.

I will first take you through the birth flowers for Leo and then the other auspicious flowers for Leos.

How are they any different? Well, I’ll address that too. So there we go! 

Leo Birth Flowers

Flowers are mostly considered special for their beautiful, dazzling, and delicate form and appearance.

But let me tell you, they are a lot more than that. Every flower carries its unique energy.

Your zodiac sign can help decode and understand many secrets and mysteries about your life and your personality.

And the flowers that are associated with your zodiac are the most special ones! For a Leo, they are Sunflower and Marigold. 

1. Sunflower


Being symbolized by a Lion, the mane-like petals of a sunflower make them the perfect fit as a Leo birth flower.

The innate warmth, and the fresh yellow color reeking of brightness and growth, beautifully compliments the lively, fun-loving nature of Leos.

Being ruled by the Sun, sunflowers are a symbol of bliss, loyalty, optimism, good luck, and vitality.

These delicate yet powerful flowers face the sun and totally stand out in flower fields! 

2. Marigold


Often known as the “herb of the sun” marigold is yet another elegant birth flower for Leos.

Marigolds bloom in different colors that bring a diverse yet vibrant persona to the personality of Leos.

These gorgeous flowers magnify happiness and positive energy.

They symbolize the lion’s spirit and fire by reflecting these traits in the passionate Leos. The vibrations of marigolds are heavily influential.
