In the dark month of January, nothing lifts the spirits quite like ebullient, colorful flowers.

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.
