What are traditional birthday flowers for people born in January?
According to The Old Farmer's Almanac, the traditional birthday flowers associated with the month of January are spicily fragrant carnations and delicate snowdrops. The botanical name of carnations, Dianthus caryophyllus, roughly translates to mean “flower of love” and anyone who receives carnations as birthday flowers in Greensboro is bound to agree. Native to the Mediterranean, carnations are now cultivated around the world and remain one of the most widely available commercial blooms. Oil derived from carnation blossoms may be used to add fragrance to perfumes, candles, and body butters. As if there weren't enough wonderful things to say about carnations, they are also one of the longest-lasting bouquet flowers and can stay fresh and lovely for up to three weeks with proper care. Snowdrops, while lovely, are not as long-lasting, but they make a nice gift to celebrate a January birthday. Because they one of the first flowers to bloom after winter, snowdrops signify hope and new beginnings, says The Old Farmer's Almanac.
