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.
There are many different meanings of carnations. Pink carnations symbolize a mother’s love.
Yellow for disdain, purple for antipathy, striped for refusal.
White stands for pure and ardent love.
While red means “alas, my poor heart.”
While carnations are widely known as inexpensive flowers, they have a long vase life and add fluff to any arrangement.
Be sure to send all your friends with January Birthdays some carnations!
