"Birth Flowers" is a term that describes the flower or flowers related to one's month of birth. Not only it represents what flowers bloom for the month, it also signifies and symbolizes different attitudes, features, and characteristics associated with that month.
In British setting, the January flowers symbolize love, beauty, pride, distinction, purity, fascination and loyalty. When it comes to English setting, January flowers mean love, fascination, and purity. Though January is an extremely cold season, nature has its own way to make flowers bloom in this time of the year, making these flowers a symbol of strength, passion, and determination.
The most popular flower for the month of January is the carnation. Just like most flowers, carnation comes in different varieties bearing different colours, shapes and sizes. The white carnations mean pure love. Due to what the white carnation represents, it is often used as one of the flowers in the bridal bouquet. The red ones mean true love. That is why red carnation is the flower for mothers who show true love to her children. The pink variety means deep affection which makes it an ideal flower gift for a special someone. Yellow, on the other hand, represents the feeling of disappointment, and the striped ones mean regret.
Another flower that is associated with the month of January is the snowdrop. Centuries ago, snowdrops were regarded flowers that bring bad luck because these were often seen in graveyards. But over the years, it was able to change its reputation and in contemporary times, snowdrops represent the feeling of beauty and hope.
This flower is able to withstand the harsh cold season of January. What is amazing about this flower is that it becomes dormant for the rest of the year and would only be in bloom during the winter season. They look lovely, have a resemblance to lilies, and look exotic. It has shades of white and deep red. They actually bloom seven weeks or longer.
Also known as rum lily, trumpet lily, and Pig lily, the calla lilies are one of the most beautiful flowers that grow in the month of January. This type of flower comes in different shades such as green, pink, purple, orange, and yellow, but the most common and the most famous is the white variety. Calla lily is not hard to grow, and in fact, very low in maintenance. It is often used to grace intimate occasions such as weddings and anniversaries.
Belonging to the daisy family, the Gerbera becomes popular due to its vivid shades and wonderful shapes. They can be an excellent addition to the garden, especially that its bright shade can instantly draw attention. Gerberas are often used in floral designs and arrangements because of its ability to delight the eyes and give cheer to the recipient of the flower. Growing in the cold month of January, gerberas are treated as annuals. Gerbera flowers thrive best in slightly sandy but well-drained soil.
