January flowers for you to enjoy

During the winter months, you might find that your surroundings are a little bland and boring. Of course, you can still brighten up your surroundings by bringing some beautiful January flowers into your home. Creating the right environment in your home at this time is very important because we can easily feel a bit low after the holiday season. So, here are some ideas to consider when choosing blooms for your home.

Top choices

There are three main types of flowers in any bouquet. Focal flowers will be the main attraction while mass flowers give the bouquet more body. Filler flowers and foliage are used to fill in the gaps in between. You can use all three or you can choose to just use focal flowers with some fillers if you prefer. You could even stick to focal flowers without anything else. It just depends on the type of January flowers you choose. Here are some of the most popular options.

  • Acacia
  • Amaryllis
  • Anthurium
  • Alstroemeria
  • Aster
  • Bouvardia
  • Calla Lily
  • Calendula
  • Carnation
  • Chrysanthemum
  • Delphinium
  • Gerbera
  • Freesia
  • Hyacinth
  • Helleborus (also known as the Christmas Rose)
  • Iris
  • Liatris
  • Narcissus
  • Rose (a staple in any flower shop)
  • Protea
  • Tulip
  • Waxflower

Pick the perfect spot

Once you have taken your pick from these January flowers and you have placed your flower order, all you need to do is find the perfect spot for your bouquet. The cold weather can make your windows particularly icy. You should make sure that you do not set your vase too close to windows or other cold surfaces. If petals or leaves come into contact with very cold surfaces, it can cause them to perish prematurely. Similarly, you should keep your blooms away from any source of heat since this can dry them out.

Remember, while these January flowers may not all bloom during this time of the year, many florists will either import them or buy them from a grower who cultivates them in greenhouses. These two options mean that you can enjoy just about any type of bloom during any time of the year. That said, they might be more expensive per stem if they are not in season.
