CARNATIONS- The Best Sellers

Also known as the Dianthus caryophyllus, Carnations are one of the most versatile flowers known worldwide. A carnation bouquet is full of significance. Carnation flowers aren’t just the national flower of Monaco, Spain and Colombia; they also have many meanings. Carnations have been around for over hundreds of years. In the Victorian era, Carnations were used by young ladies to respond to secret admirers or suitors. While a striped carnation signalled “regretfully no,” yellow represented “no” and a solid colour represented “yes”.

Carnation bouquets have many fascinating tales associated with them, but one of the most widespread reasons for which people choose carnations is their unparalleled beauty and bewildering palette of colours. At Prince’s Flower Shop, the gorgeous full blooms of Carnations are popular for their subtle, sweet scent, and their wide range of colours make the carnation bouquets a delight for all senses.

History of Carnations

Carnations are one of the world’s oldest cultivated flowers, according to Wikipedia. What an incredible feat! They were found by Theophrastus, one of the earliest known botanists, in the Ancient Greek and Roman periods.

Carnations were widely utilised in art, decor, wreaths, and perfumes, and were mostly grown in Europe and Asia. They also had some significant health benefits! Brewing a delicious carnation tea would aid to lift those feelings and offer them a nice huge surge of energy for people who were stressed. In addition, they were utilized to cure stomach aches, fevers, wrinkles, and other skin problems. It’s no surprise they’re called the “flower of the gods”!

How The Carnation Got Its Name

So, where did the name “carnation” come from? There are a lot of hypotheses and legends around this. According to popular folklore and legends, the word ‘coronation’ came from the flower’s use in Greek ceremonial crowns. Others believe that ‘carnis’ means flesh which means flesh because the first carnations were mostly pink.

The truth is that no one, including flower experts like us, actually understands where the word “carnation” comes from. But we do know that the scientific name ‘dianthus caryophyllus’ was given to it by the god Zeus. The Greek word for Zeus is ‘Dios,’ and the word for flower is ‘anthos,’ so ‘dianthus’ was formed! Carnations are also known as the “flower of the gods” for another reason.

Still, unsure about getting a carnation bouquet for your loved ones? Well, let us guide you through the reasons.

Carnation Flower Meaning by Color

Typically, Carnations carry the meaning of “a woman’s love”, which is why they are one of the most popular flowers to gift on Mother’s Day. However, you need to understand that their exact meanings rely on their colour.

For example, the red carnations symbolize love and affection, whereas the white carnations embody luck and purity. The defining part of Carnation bouquets is their versatile colour. The day flowers are available in a wide range of colours ranging from purple, yellow and pink to white and gradients of red.

When the Carnations were originally discovered, they were only found in a few hues of pink. However, just like humans, Carnations have also evolved. Now they include an extensive spectrum of colours, each with its own unique meaning.

  • Gratitude is Symbolised by Pink Carnations.

The most common colour of carnation is pink, which symbolises gratitude. Mother’s Day is often associated with pink carnations. Carnations are the official Mother’s Day flower in the United States.
