Carnations: More Than Just a Flower
Carnations are among the world’s oldest cultivated flowers. They originated in Eurasia and were used in garlands by the Greeks and Romans over 2,000 years ago! They were grown not just for decorations, however. They also were used as flavoring for wine, liquor and beer. Since the carnation is edible, their sweet petals and bitter stems offered great sugar and spice substitutes.
Carnations are known as “The Flowers of God.” This is because their scientific name “Dianthus” comes from two Greek words: “Dios,” meaning Zeus, and “ants,” meaning flower.
Christian lore tells a story that carnations grew where the Virgin Mary’s tears fell as she wept over Jesus on the cross. This may be why pink carnations represent motherly love and are often found in Mother’s Day floral arrangements.
These flowers are often found in floral arrangements since they have a ton of color variety and they are among the longest living flowers after being cut. The popularity of these flowers are beginning to surpass even roses! Their usefulness has gone beyond funerals and prom boutonnieres. They are elegant in a single vase for your wedding tables or bundled together for your bride’s maids bouquets.
