One of the most magnificent flowering plants prized for its vibrant blossoms is the carnation. Its graceful blossoming adds a striking feature and can enhance the charm of your outdoor area.
The family Caryophyllaceae includes the herbaceous perennial plant known as the carnation (Dianthus caryophyllus). The blooms are produced single or up to five combined, and the leaves range in colour from glaucous greyish green to blue-green. Carnations are ideal for instantly bringing colour to any space! Fresh bouquets of cut flowers survive a long time and are excellent gifts.
Feed the Carnation once a month with organic fertiliser throughout the main growing season. To enable the plant to absorb nutrients and moisture more readily, loosen the dirt without upsetting the plant’s roots.
