My earliest memory of Carnations was back in high school. They were at the center of every homecoming and prom corsage and boutonnière. I always viewed them as the cheap flower that you can dye by dipping its stem in a mixture of water and food coloring. As of recent, this sweet flower is making a come back...you'll even find them in high-end wedding bouquets. They mean fascination, distinction and love and you will love how long they last in a vase.
