Flower of the month for March is Daffodil, which is also known as narcissus, is a sure sign of spring. The daffodil is also a symbol of rebirth, new beginnings, and future prosperity. Their reemergence each spring reminds us that something beautiful can follow the coldest winter of the most difficult troubles.
