What is the Flower for the Month of January?

The January birth flowers are the carnation and the snowdrop

January Birth Month Flower: The Carnation

The carnation comes in several different colors to convey different meanings, much like roses. A pink carnation means affection, while a red carnation means ‘I love you.’

White carnations mean pure love, striped carnations means regret that a love is not shared, and yellow means rejection or disappointment. 

January Birth Month Flower: The Snowdrop

The snowdrop used to be considered bad luck because it always seemed to appear to grow in graveyards, but nowadays this delicate flower signifies hope and beauty.
