Everyone loves flowers, and we have another reason for you to get your hands on more beautiful Bouqs this year. It’s your birthday! Happy Birthday, January girl! Have you met the January birth flower yet? Why don’t we explore this enchanting and powerful flower a little more?
History and Traits of the Carnation
The carnation is the official January birth month flower. It’s also known as Dianthus Caryophyllus, which translates into “Flower of Love.” Just like you, these ruffled beauties add a bit of distinction to any room they appear in. Another trait that you share with the January birth flower is vitality. The carnation continues to endure over the centuries and in its environment, plus it’s deep-seated in history. In Christianity, it is believed that the very first carnation bloomed at the feet of Mary when her tears fell for Jesus, while the Greeks saw this lovely plant as a “Flower of God.”
Just like the vibrant personalities known to be found in the January girl (or guy!), carnations appear in such captivating hues that are certain to please even the most discerning eyes. Here’s what some of the colors mean:
- Light Red – This delicate shade brings about warm feelings of admiration and gratitude
- Deep Red– Ah, the color of Romance! These luxurious flowers symbolize deep love and affection.
- White– These flowers give quite the lovely vibe of purity and luck.
- Pink– Give these pretty blooms to tell someone you’re grateful for them.

Some TLC For your Carnation Bouq
Once you lay your eyes on your gorgeous carnation Bouq, you’ll want to keep them blooming prettily around your sitting room for as long as possible. Here are some great tips to follow when it comes to caring for your January birth flower:
- Pick a spot that receives ample sunlight.
- Place your carnations in distilled water, at room temperature.
- Replace the vase with clean water at least every other day.
- Be sure to keep these flowers away from heat or drafts, or else they won’t be able to breathe.
- On day three (or if you see the vase water becoming cloudy) recut your stems and change the water.
- Don’t forget to watch out for any dead leaves or blooms. You can go ahead and cut those away to keep your Bouq looking fresh.
