The Rosary is a powerful prayer which combines meditation on the life of Jesus Christ together with spoken or mental prayer.
A rosary, or set of structured beads, can be 'told' or fingered in a particular pattern while you are praying.
The Rosary is a powerful tool of prayer against the devil and his followers.
The Rosary offers many graces to the person praying; and also to the family of the person praying.
The Rosary offers protection while travelling, and in dangerous situations.
The Rosary is often answered by great graces.

Amaryllis, or Amaryllis belladonna - or 'Beautiful lady'. Tradition tells us that the flower symbolizes Mary as 'Beautiful lady'

Amaryllis, or Hippeastrum hybrid - or 'St Joseph's Lily'.
  The legend is that when a suitable husband was being chosen for Mary, the suitor who made the most striking impression was Joseph.  
The reason was that when he arrived to meet Mary and her parents, he was carrying a long brown walking stick. At the upper end of the stick, a beautiful flower bloomed - the Amaryllis belladonna . . .

Baby's breath, or Gypsophila panicul - 'Lady's Veil'

Bachelor's buttons, or Centauria cyannis - 'Mary's Crown'

Begonia, or Begonia fuch rosa - 'Heart of Mary'

Bellflower, or Adenophera - 'Lady Bell'

Bleeding heart, or Dicentra spectabilis - 'Mary's Heart'

Blue Flag Iris, or Iris versicolor - share Mary's sorrows as we behold the purple blossoms and sword-like leaves of this herb and flower.
  The Iris was compared to the Virgin in mystic devotion.
The blade-shaped foliage denotes the sorrows which 'pierced her heart' as Simeon prophesied in the Temple during the Presentation of the Baby Jesus

Blue Phlox, or Phlox divericata - 'Lady's Wedding'

Bluets, or Houstonia caerul - 'Madonna's Eyes'

Buttercup, or Ranunculus acris - 'Lady's Our Bowl'

Camelia, or Camellia japonica - 'Purity'

Canna, or Canna generalis - 'Rosary beads'

Canterbury bells, or Campanula medium - 'Our Lady's Nightcap, Mary's Bells, Our Lady's Smock'
Carnation, or Dianthus caryophyllis - Mary's love of God.
  These flowers are said to have bloomed at Christ's Nativity, according to a German legend

Castilian roses [Damascus roses or Damask roses] or Rosa damascena  - The variety of roses found by Juan Diego after the heavenly visitation of Our Lady of Guadalupe
Christmas Rose, or Helleborus - said to have flowered on Christmas day to honour the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, Son of Mary

Chrysanthemum, or Chrysanthemum coronarium - 'All Saints Flower' . Chrysanthemum is believed to have been present as Christ was laid in His Tomb
Clematis, or Clematis virginiana- the Virgin's Bower

Clematis, or Clamatis flammula - 'Cross'

Columbine, or Aquilegia vulgaris; known as 'Our Lady's Shoes'
  Columbine is said to have sprung up wherever Mary's foot touched the earth when she was on her way to visit her cousin Elizabeth who was pregnant with her second cousin, John.
  Columbine's spurred flower is said to resemble a minute dove; and the flower came to symbolize the Holy Spirit of God.
  In England, doves were used to decorate the altar in Whitsun Week - the week following Pentecost Sunday - as people made connection between the dove, the Holy Spirit and Our Lady's Flower - the other name they had given the sweet columbine

Mary, how many miles you walked upon this earth!
  Your grace-filled being brought the Son of Man close to us.
Have we ever thanked you for the role you played?
  Let us follow your footprints; even better, teach us to walk in your shoes

Costmary,  or Chrystanthemum balsamita - 'Mary's Leaf'

Cowslip, or Primula veris - 'Our Lady's Keys'. In medieval times, St Mary was often referred to as 'Our Lady'

Daffodil, or Narcissus pseudonarc - 'Mary's Star'

Dog rose, or Rosa canina - 'Mary's Thorn'

Edelweiss, or Leontopodium alpinum - 'Purity'

English daisy, or Bellis perennis - 'Mary-love'

Fern, or Asplenium ruta-mur - 'Lady's Hair'

Field Bindweed, or Convolvulus arvensis - 'Our Lady's Little Glass', after a symbolic story in which Our Lady assisted a waggoner to set his cart free after she plucked the flower and gave it to him

Forget-Me-Not, or Myostis scorpoides, Myostis sylvatica- 'Our Lady's Eyes'

Foxglove - 'Our Lady's Gloves'

Fuschia, or Fuschia magellanica and hybrida - 'Our Lady's Ear-drop'.
  The gently drooping flowers of the lovely fuschia resemble pendant earrings or ear-drops. It is said that Jesus may have playfully hung flower jewels of amethyst and ruby colors on his mother's ears.
  Another tradition is that the blossoms were named Our Lady's Ear-drops as a way of paying tribute to Mary, who through her ears 'heard the Word of God, and kept it'

A baby's fascinated play - tugging at his mother's ear, playing with her face and hair, brings a smile to those who watch.
  Little ones cherish their moms, tucking fallen flowers in her hair and bringing her wildflower bouquets to bring her joy.
  Mary, nourish my love for you and Jesus.

Heartsease - known as 'Herb Trinity' because of its white, yellow and purple coloring. Common in medieval paintings of Mary

Holy Hay

Juniper, or Juniperis - 'The Madonna's Juniper Bush'.
  In Sicily it is said that the juniper bush saved both Mary and the infant Jesus life as they fled into Egypt.
  They were being pursued by soldiers, and the Holy Family fled through fields of flax and peas and various shrub thickets.
  The trusty juniper bush opened up its thick branches to enclose the Holy Family, hiding them until the searching soldiers had gone.
  The inside of the large bush became a soft bed, sheltering the fleeing family.
  The needles on the outside of the bush became as prickly as spears, thus protecting the Family within.

  Our garden of life includes both blessing and despair. Mary's life embraced both.
  Mary, you, Joseph and child lived in Egypt, toiling for years to build a good life.
  Sometimes I wonder how you managed to live your life so untouched by bitterness or harshness of spirit. Please teach me.

Lavender - Our Lady's Drying Plant

Lily of the Valley, or Convalleria majalis - 'Our Lady's Tears'.
  It was said that when Mary wept at the foot of the Cross, her tears fell to the ground and turned into the tiny fragrant blossoms of the Lily of the Valley.
  This flower was a symbol of the Virgin Mary because of its pure flowers, sweet scent and humble appearance.
  It was held to symbolize the Immaculate Conception of Mary, and to represent the purity of body and soul by which Mary found favor with God.
  Lily of the Valley is one of the flowers used to decorate the Lady Chapels of Churches. 
  In his paintings, the famous early Netherlandish painter Jan van Eyck portrayed the flower in the grass beneath Mary's feet.

The sacred text does not speak of your tears, Mary, as our legend does. It tells us instead that you stood by the cross and you were not alone.
  Other women and John were also there. We wonder at the sorrow, the pain of this little community standing by.
  Fragrant tiny white lily-bells, a thousand quiet tears bowing before the still-cold winter winds, teach me of springtime and the Resurrection just beyond the stone-cold tomb.

Lungwort - 'Mary's tears' - The white spots on the leaves were held to be Mary's tearstains; and the changing color of the flowers from pink to blue represent blue eyes reddened with weeping.
  Lungwort is also known as 'Mary and Joseph'

Madonna Lily - said to have been carried by the Angel Gabriel when he visited Mary to tell her God had chosen her to be the Mother of the Savior.
  The Venerable Bede, 8th-century chronicler of the English people and church, claimed that the color of the flower represented her purity, and the golden anthers the radiant light of her soul

Marigolds - Mary's Gold. The flowers were used as a gold-colored dye for wool, and may have been thought to symbolize Mary's simplicity and domesticity of life

Mantle - Our Lady's Mantle. The leaves are covered with fine silky hairs on which raindrops can settle without wetting the leaf.              
  Possibly because of this the plant was likened to a cloak for the Blessed Virgin

Our Lady's Bedstraw

Ox-eye Daisy, or Chrysanthemum leucanthemum - 'Mary's Star'. Symbolic of purity and simplicity, the daisy is widely portrayed in the flower meadows of medieval paintings.
The legend tells that on the night that Jesus was born, the Magi were praying on a mountainside.
  They saw a star appear in the form of a fair child who told them to go to Jerusalem, where they would find a newborn infant.
  The Wise Men followed the Star and reached Bethlehem village. They searched for a further sign; and King Melchior saw a white and gold flower that looked like the star that had led them to Bethlehem.
  Melchior bent to pick the sweet flower, and, as he did so, a stable door opened and they saw the Holy Family.

The Office of the Star - a mystery play and a pageant about the visit of the Magi on the Feast of the Epiphany, began as a part of the 11th century liturgical service. It probably originated in France.
  The play was later replaced by Feast of the Star, performed partly in church, and partly outdoors.

Things, persons and events are prophets pointing the way to God; inspiring people to praise God. 
  Did you learn, Mary, to discern God's graces long before Bethlehem and the coming of your Child?
  If only I could share your wisdom, as did the Wise Men who knelt down before the Child in your arms

Peony - gloriously rich medieval flower which featured in many tapestries and paintings

Periwinkle - 'The Virgin's Flower', probably because of its blue, star-like flowers. Mary was often referred to as Stella Maris, meaning 'Star of the Sea'

Petunia - sing Mary's praise

Pinks - also known as the 'Gilly flower'; they are considered a symbol of the Virgin Mary

Primrose - was used to decorate church altars in May, which is called 'the month of Mary'

Rose - symbolizes Mary herself, known as the 'Mystic Rose'.
  Two of the roses associated with Mary are the antique Rosa Gallica [the 'apothecary's rose] and Rosa Alba.
  The Gallica is reputed to be the oldest cultivated rose and the ancestor of all European medieval roses

Snowdrop - 'Our Lady's Bells'. Snowdrops flower at the Feast of the Presentation of Christ in the Temple - also known as Candlemas - or The Purification of Saint Mary the Virgin.
  This beautiful feast falls on February 2nd

Star of Bethlehem - this flower is a reminder of the birth of Jesus Christ at Christmas

Violet - 'Our Lady's Modesty'. This flower symbolizes the humility of Mary.
  The violet's delicacy, color, sweet scent and characteristic heart-shaped leaves refer to Mary's innocence, modesty and constancy

Wild Strawberry - designated as the fruit of the Virgin Mary and of blessed souls in heaven.
  In his paintings, Jan Van Eyck depicted wild strawberries growing in the grass beneath Mary's feet.


  Villagers tending their plots; herbalists cutting medicinal herbs and cloistered nuns on their knees planting flowers and herbs gave honor and praise to the Mother of the Divine as they carried out their humble tasks.
'Flower of flowers' 
  Medieval people were devoted to Mary, and decorated altars with flowers on her feast days. Violets were symbols of her humility; lilies symbolised her purity, and vibrant roses her glory.
  They named Mary 'Flower of Flowers' and named plants after her.

Mary's life 
 There are more than thirty herbs and flowers which bear touching legends about Mary's life.
  You might wish to grow a Mary Garden dedicated to Mary; many people have a Marian garden, in which they grow plants associated with her name.
  An image of Mary resides in the Marian garden.
These statues can be easily obtained. [See [1] for one link].
  The Marian garden is a wonderful place to spend time in, increase your serenity and turn your heart and mind to God in prayer.

  St Benedict had a rose garden ['rosary'] at his monastery in the 4th century.
  The first garden we know of which was specifically dedicated to Mary was that of the Irish St Fiacre in the 7th century.
  The earliest record of a Mary Garden is that of a fifteenth century monastic accounting of records for the purchase of plants for 'S. Mary's Garden'.
  This record was made by the Norwich Priory Sacristan in England.

Rich tradition 
  Prior to the Second Vatican Council of the early 1960's, a rich tradition of honoring Mary with flowers flourished.
  May crownings of Marian statues with flowers were carried out.
  Home altars with an image of Mary were often decorated by home-grown flowers.
  After the Council, the medieval customs faded somewhat; but in a post-Conciliar revival, the Mary Garden has made a strong comeback.
  In medieval times, legends about flowers and herbs were used to instruct the faithful, as well as to entertain them.
  As those striving to know more about the gospel values gazed at violets, they thought of Mary's humility. They would then try to practise her humility in their daily lives.
  Medieval men and women sang Mary's praises when they passed petunias; and thought of Mary's sorrows during her life as they saw the purple blossoms and sword-like leaves of the blue flag iris.

Popes and poets 
 Popes and poets praised Mary in hymns, such as in this 15th-century Ave Maria:
     Heil be touch, Marie, that aff flour of all
     As roose in eerbir so reed.

If you wish to make a Mary garden, remember it is very simple to create; it is a small sacred garden enclosing a statue or shrine of the Virgin Mary.
  You can plant flowers that remind you of Mary. Read through the lists of flowers and herbs we will provide, and which can be easily grown in your own Mary garden.

Make your own Mary garden
  A Mary Garden is a garden dedicated to Mary, the Mother of God.
In a Mary Garden, which can be as small as a clay pot or as large as a park, a statue of Mary is surrounded by herbs and flowers which have special significance for her, through legends or naming.
  If you have a garden or backyard, why not plant your Mary garden there?
  Otherwise plant your garden in a pot on your windowsill, on a patio or on an indoor table. 

Virtual Mary garden
   If you are sick and bedbound, or a child with no garden of your own, you can make a picture of a Mary garden and place it next to your bed.
  Looking at the picture will immediately give you a virtual Mary's garden where you can connect with the Mother of the Divine.

Pilgrimage to Mary gardens
  Should you wish to make a pilgrimage in Mary's honor, you may find these herbs and flowers in Mary gardens throughout the world.
  Five large Mary Gardens, each with a statue of the holy Madonna and all connected with religious institutions, are located east of the Mississippi River.

  •   The Garden of Our Lady, across Millfield Street from St Joseph Church in Woods Hole on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

  •   The Mary Garden at St Mary's Church Annapolis, Maryland, is located behind the church in the quadrangle formed by the church, rectory and Carroll House on Duke of Gloucester Street in old Annapolis.

  •   The Mary Garden at the Shrine at Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto at Mount Saint John is located near Dayton, Ohio. The grotto is a model of the Massabielle Lourdes Grotto of France.

  •   Mary's Garden at St Catherine of Siena Church in Portage, Michigan.

  •   The Mary Garden at the Episcopal Convent of the Transfiguration on the grounds of the convent in the Cincinnati, Ohio, suburb of Glendale.

  •   Mary Gardens at the Knock Shrine, County Mayo, Ireland.

  •   Artane Oratory of the Resurrection, Dublin Ireland.


  •   Cloister of Lincoln Cathedral, Lincoln, England.

  • Our Lady's Parish, Wangaratta, Victoria, Australia.
  • The Church of Our Lady of Akita, Akita, Japan.

Remember O most gracious Virgin Mary
That never was it known
That anyone who came to thy protection,
Implored thy help, or sought thy intercession
Was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee
O Virgin of virgins, my mother,
To thee do I come,
Before thee I stand,
Sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
Despise not my petitions
But in thy mercy hear and grant my prayer.

Gentlest of the gentle

Still as on we journey
Help our weak endeavour
Till with thee and Jesus

Father, Son and Spirit,
One same glory be.

Turn then, O most gracious advocate,
Thine eyes of mercy towards us,
And after this, our exile, show unto us
The Blessed Fruit of thy womb, Jesus,
O clement, o loving, O sweet Virgin Mary,
Pray for us o most holy Mother of God
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ, thy Son.

Let us pray;
Almighty, everlasting God, Who by the co-operation
of the Holy Spirit didst prepare the body and soul
of the glorious Virgin Mother Mary 
to become a dwelling place for thy Son;
grant that as we rejoice in her commemoration,
so by her fervent intercession we may be
delivered from present evils and everlasting death.
Through the same Christ, our Lord.

'And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; He shall crush your head, and you will bruise His Heel'

The Old Testament prophesies of Mary;
Jeremiah 31;22; 'The LORD will create a new thing on earth - a woman shall encompass a man'

Isaiah 7;14; 'Therefore the LORD Himself will give you a sign.The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel'

Psalm 22;9-10 'Yet you brought me out of the womb;
you made me trust in you, even at my mother's breast.
From birth I was cast on you;
from my mother's womb you have been my God'

Micah 5;2-3 'But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
though you are small among the clans of Judah,
out of you will come for me
one who will be ruler over Israel,
whose origins are from of old,
from ancient times'

Mary in the New Testament
Matthew 1;16; '...and Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, and Mary was the mother of Jesus Who is called the Messiah'

Luke 1;26-56. God sent the Archangel Gabriel to Mary in Nazareth. He named Mary blessed, and told her the news that she would become pregnant with the Son of the Most High, Jesus.
Jesus would receive the throne of King David, his ancestor; His rule would be an eternal one.
Mary went to visit her pregnant cousin Elizabeth, and spoke the prophetic words of Mary's song. Particularly poignant and true of Our Blessed Lady is when she proclaimed, 'From now on all generations will call me blessed' [Luke 1;48].

Luke Chapter 2; Mary went with Joseph to Bethlehem to be registered in the census. It was there that Jesus was born.
  When the time for the purification of Mary and the presentation and circumcision of Jesus, they went up to Jerusalem.
  Thereafter Jesus was presented in the Temple, and acclaimed by Simeon and Anna - prophets in the Temple.
  Naturally Jesus was in the arms and the care of his parents, Joseph and Mary. Mary his natural mother, Joseph his earthly stepfather.

Matthew 2;13-14 tells of the Angel's warning to Joseph to flee with Jesus and His mother Mary, to Egypt; thus saving their lives from the assassination plot of the then King, Herod.

Mary is spoken of again in Luke 2;41-51; when she and Joseph searched anxiously for Jesus who had - unknown to them - stayed behind at the Temple in Jerusalem.
  He was discussing theology with the teachers at the Temple. Mary discussed other things with them - such as obedience to His parents.
  Jesus had discovered His true paternity - and, as always happens, familial differences led to the ruffling of the waters of family harmony.
  Mary treasured all these occurrences in her heart - she knew her Son was destined for great things.
  She had received warning from Simeon that a sword of sorrow would pierce her soul - as occurred later at the execution of her Son.

Mary is mentioned in Luke 8;19, when she came to visit Jesus while He was at public ministry.

The people of Nazareth speak of Mary, when they question; 'Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not his mother called Mary?' in Matthew 13;55.

A woman in the crowd praised Mary as blessed to have borne Him. Luke 11;27-28.

The crowds in Capernaum mention Mary, in John 6;42. 'And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know?'

Mary stood by Jesus throughout his suffering and death.
She stood at the foot of the cross on which He was crucified.
Jesus entrusted Mary into the care of His beloved disciple, John.
  From then on, Mary's home was with John. [John Chapter 19].

Mary supported the disciples of the Early Church. They were all at prayer in the Upper Room when the Holy Spirit of God came down, as Jesus had promised. [Acts 1;14]

Paul spoke of Mary in the Letter to the Galatians, 4;4. 'But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law.'

The Book of Revelation speaks of Mary's symbolic appearance as Empress of Heaven, conqueror with her Son over the dragon. She wears a crown of twelve stars, and is a wonder in Heaven. [Revelation 12;1-17].
