Birth Flower for January

According to the language of flowers, also known as floriography, birth flowers are flowers which have been designated to different months of the year.

Like birthstones, a birth flower is a particular flower that directly correlates with the month that an individual is born in. 

The month of January has two birth flowers - snowdrop and carnation.

January Birthflower - Snowdrop

One of the birthflowers of January is the snowdrop. While snowdrops are not as widely recognised as the carnation, they are captivatingly white and elegant.

Snowdrops typically bloom during winter and early spring, symbolising hope and rebirth.  This stems from the story in the Garden of Eden, where God sent snow after casting Eve from the Garden.

As the Earth was cold and bare, an angel breathed upon a snowflake, creating a snowdrop flower.  As these snowdrops only bloom in white, they also symbolise purity — like other white flowers. Their petals are oblong and bent on the stem, giving off a mild scent.

Carnation - Birth Flower January

The other birthflower of January is the carnation. Carnations are typically found in the Mediterranean area and give off a “spicy” fragrance.

This flower is also used in the flower industry as part of bouquets. These carnations come in various colours, including red, purple and white. Their bright colours symbolise admiration and distinction. They are a flower often used in Mothers Day gift bouquets.
