About Carnation

This Dianthus orange variety is bi-colored bringing both orange and cream together to create a lovely sherbet-like appearance. This Carnation seed produces double, beautifully scented, fringed flowers that grow as a perennial in frost free zones. Carnation flowers can grow as annuals where winters are cold.

Grow carnation flower seeds in borders, planters, cottage gardens and rock gardens. For Carnation flowers the first year, start Dianthus seeds indoors 10 - 12 weeks before the last frost, planting 2 - 3 flower seeds per pot or cell. Cover the Carnation seeds with no more than 1/16 inch of soil and keep the seeds moist until germination.
