Flower of the Month: Carnation

There are over 300 species of carnations with hundreds of varieties. They are available in an enormous array of shades and colors. Some may even be bi-colored. The most common colors are red, pink, white, and burgundy. They are easy to dye to match whatever color you desire.mixed-carnations.jpg

There are many different meanings of carnations. Pink carnations symbolize a mother’s love.flwrmuse_110426-9.jpg
