Send Carnations with FREE Next-day Delivery!

Carnations are one of the most popular flowers around. They're versatile, remarkably durable, and they actually last longer when they are cut. A carnation bouquet is a flower fiend's dream come true!

Carnations are native to the Mediterranean region in Europe, or so we think — they've been grown in captivity for so long now that it's hard to tell when their cultivation began! Carnation Flowers are said to express several traditional meanings. The main emotions associated with carnations are love, fascination, and distinction, though there are many variations dependent on the colour of the petals.

The carnation's formal name, dianthus, comes from Greek for 'heavenly flower', or the flower of Jove. Jove, also known as Jupiter, was the Roman equivalent of the Greek God Zeus - known for his curly beard and thunderbolts! Thankfully the carnation doesn't carry these properties over - it's a far more calming, enchanting flower than that!
