Send your January birthday carnations with KaBloom fresh flower delivery!
Everyone with a January birthday gets to enjoy the Carnation as their birth flower. Carnations are considered gentle, attractive, and versatile. They sit well in floral arrangements, corsages, and boutonnieres.
The Carnation is a good flower to have as a birth flower because of its impressive symbolism. The simple Carnation stands for affection, deep love, distinction, fascination, happiness, and lasting fidelity.
The Carnation is a perennial that grows as high as 80 centimeters. It is native to the Mediterranean region and has been cultivated for the last 2,000 years. Carnations come in various colors, including red, pink, and white. Each color has its own symbolism. Pink is a symbol of a mother's love (making it the ideal gift for Mother's Day), white stands for true and pure love, and red denotes worldly desires and approval.
Carnations can also be found in purple, which stands for capriciousness, or green, making it a popular flowerfor St. Patrick's Day celebrations.
These January birth flowers also have the unique ability to display color within the veins of their petals, making it easy to use dye to add your color of choice. To change the color of a Carnation, all you do is place a white Carnation in colored water. The flower will absorb the dye as it drinks the water, leaving colored rivulets all over its petals.
The alternate birth flower for January is the Snowdrop. The Snowdrop is a white flower with three small petals that form a tight center. Three large petals then form a circle around them. The Snowdrop blooms at the beginning of the year, making it the ideal January birthday flower.
