Carnation Seeds

Dianthus caryophyllus

Carnations are a species of Dianthus. Carnations require well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soil, and full sun. The formal name for carnation, dianthus, name given by the Greek botanist Theopharastus comes from Greek for "heavenly flower.  In Korea, carnations express admiration, love and gratitude.

Carnations do not naturally produce the pigment delphinidin, meaning that a blue carnation cannot occur by natural selection or traditional breeding. It shares this characteristic with other widely sold flowers like roses, lillies, tulips and gerveras.
