Humans are social animals. Flowers have been the most acceptable and warming gifts in all the socio-cultural gatherings. Carnation is the most beautiful and eye-catching flower, which is also a symbol of love and affection. With the lush green stems, topped with pretty soulful blooms, they always stand out in the flower vases.
Dianthus caryophyllus, popularly known as Carnations or clove pink is found in the Mediterranean region. Dated back to 2000 years ago, it was first mentioned in the Greek literature and has been extensively cultivated after that. The story behind the name “Dianthus Caryophyllus”, was that Diana the Goddess came upon a shepherd boy and took a liking to him. The boy turned her down, so out of rage, the Goddess ripped out his eyes and threw them on the soil from which they sprouted into the dianthus flower.
The carnation is a herbaceous perennial plant and the leaf varies from greyish green to blue-green. They are produced singly or in a bunch of up to five together in a cyme and have a sweet fragrance. Carnations vary widely in colors. They are available in white shades and then go down the line of soft pastel shades. Cultivators have also developed other colors as well such as red, white, yellow and green. These flowers require well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soil and plenty of sunlight to bloom completely. They are also used for medical purposes, such as an upset stomach and fever. And their fragrance was historically used for wine, beer, vinegar, sauces, and salads.
