Carnations have long been the classic go-to of florists looking for a flower to round out mixed arrangements or bouquets. The blooms were lovely and the stems long, straight and strong. Gorgeous in a vase, a little leggy for the home garden. Thanks to this specially developed compact cultivar, carnations can now be enjoyed in border plantings, containers and rock gardens. Plants bear an abundance of fluffy, fragrant, fully double blooms in an array of bright hues. Orange, pink, red, white or yellow flowers sit upright on moderate stems amid unique blue-green foliage. Butterflies love the blooms, gardeners love this mix's perennializing habit.
