About Bulk Carnations

The perpetual flowering carnation, which may have been developed through hybridization between border carnations and cottage pink (D. plumarius), grows to a height of up to one metre (three feet), has a stockier build, and bears larger flowers than its border carnation ancestor; additionally, it flowers almost nonstop in the greenhouse. In addition, the florist industry requires miniature (baby) and spray varieties of the perennial carnation. These are grown commercially.

 

The use of carnations in floral arrangements, corsages, and boutonnieres makes them one of the most popular types of cut flowers sold in commercial settings. Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is credited with choosing the pink carnation to represent Mother’s Day in 1907. In the past, carnations were traditionally used to bring down high temperatures in Europe. In Elizabethan times, it was also used as a substitute for the more expensive clove when flavouring wine and ale. This practise continued well into the early modern period.

Even knowledgeable people in the field of flowers, such as ourselves, are clueless about where the name “carnation” came from. However, one thing that we are aware of is that the name “dianthus caryophyllus” that is used in scientific circles originated from the all-powerful Greek god Zeus. Because the word for flower in Greek is anthos and the Greek word for Zeus is dios, they combined their names to create the word “dianthus.” Carnations are revered as the “flower of the gods” for a number of reasons, one of which is as follows:

How to press carnations?

If you want to preserve a flower that was given to you by a special someone or that was given to you on a special occasion, pressing a carnation or any other type of flower is a great way to do so. Flower pressing can also be used as a method for the creation of artwork, greeting cards, and other types of crafts, which can be done as a hobby or as a home-based business. Because carnations have so many petals and such a full bloom, pressing them can be a bit of a challenge, but the finished product is absolutely stunning due to the wide range of colours and the delicate outline of the flower.

Cut the stem of the carnation flower to the appropriate length. Because you do not want to press just a portion of the flower, you will need to trim it so that it can be placed entirely between the pages of the book that you are using. Use scissors that are sharp and cut it so that it is neat and clean. To prevent the carnation from rotting, remove any surface moisture from its surface using paper towel.
