Dianthus caryophyllus 'Trailing Carnations Mixed'

Wild Carnation

Hardy Perennial

Travelling in the Alpine regions of Europe one is struck by the magnificent and visual impact of their window boxes, hanging baskets, pots, tubs etc. And then we realised that they make liberal use of pendulous carnations adding an extra slant in perspective and design. The colour range is mainly pink and red shades.

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.
