Birth Flowers Guide. January

Have you ever thought that every month has a birth flower and that each one has a special meaning? Like people, birth flowers are distinctive – filled with significance and wonderful stories. So whether you’re looking for a creative gift for someone’s birthday, or just want to add a personal touch to a flower arrangement for any occasion, our Birth Flower Guide will help you find out which flower is uniquely theirs.

JANUARY: CARNATION

Carnation represents pride, beauty, admiration and gratitude, the carnation’s multilayered, feathery soft petals conceal a hardy core – an appropriate paradox for this first-month-of-the-year flower. Originally from Asia, where they’ve been cultivated for the last 2,000 years, today this winter birth flower is a richly colorful and fragrant gem.

For the most part, carnations express love, fascination, and distinction, though there are many variations dependent on colour:

Light red carnations represent admiration

Dark red denote deep love and affection

White carnations indicate pure love and good luck

Striped symbolise a regret that a love cannot be shared.
