Forget all you knew about carnations!  

Nov 02

And please, no carnations!

You may have given us this instruction while ordering flowers, and we understand. Prominently featured in arrangements a few decades ago, Carnations have lost their appeal for many due to their visible knotty stems and their reputation of “cheap flowers”.

But the wheel of time keeps on turning, and while this was true only a few years back, new varieties of carnations have appeared that have changed the game once more. Forget all you knew about carnations: here is a guide to flowers that you have never seen!

These are the flowers that completely changed the floral world. Initially a step towards the creation of the elusive Blue Rose, purple carnations have taken a life or their own with colours that are still rare to find amongst blooms. From sweet violet to dark night purple, the tones of the so-called “Moon Series” carnations are more than just in style today: they are creating style.

As much as we all know that “classics never go out of style“, you might be skeptical as I tell you that the classic White Carnation has never been that popular. Beyond its pure white colour, which suits solemn occasions and bridal gowns alike, the reason for this rediscovered love is found in its clean, fresh fragrance. Discreet yet immediately noticeable, a single carnation on your table will make wonders on your mood, and they remain affordable and long-lasting.

Don’t take my word for it: see them for yourselves; touch them, smell their perfume, and fall under their spell… So will everyone around you!
