Did you know every birth month has its own flower? Each of those flowers has its own dedicated meaning, as well. It’s believed that the Romans began this tradition, and the Victorian era also brought floriography, the language of flowers. Charming ruffled petals and a wide array of colors have made the January birth flower: carnation, popular all over the world. Known for its delicate powdery fragrance and long-lasting bloom life, carnations symbolize genuine affection, admiration, true love, purity and devotion.
