What is the birth month flower for January?
The carnation and the snowdrop are the birth flowers for January. Carnations are a staple in almost flower shop you may visit. They often represent love and remembrance, but individual colors will have different meanings. Snowdrops typically represent optimism, innocence, or hope, but they may be used to embody compassion in times of crisis.
Botanical Background of Carnations and Snowdrops
The Carnation: The carnations are herbaceous perennial plants, otherwise known as the dianthus caryophyllus. Carnations demand full sun and well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soil. Carnations are often used in floral arrangements, corsages, and boutonnieres and are one of the most popular commercial cut flowers.
The Snowdrop: From the genus Galanthus, snowdrops are little perennial plants with linear leaves at the base. They are the first garden flowers to bloom in late winter or early spring, sometimes even while there is still snow on the ground.
