What is old is new again. Some folks find carnations to be a thing of the past, but personally, we love, love, love them! Homegrown carnations bring the most delightful scent to your arrangements; the scent is infinitely better than any store-bought carnation you've ever encountered, trust us!
Carnations come in such wonderful, nuanced colours that we cannot help but love them. And they smell of cinnamon and cloves to boot! The picotee mix may include colors such as rose, wine, cream, white, pink and peach colors.
