Flower Spotlight: Carnations

For this month’s flower spotlight, we’d like to give credit where credit is due to an unsung hero of the floral industry, carnations. They get a bad rap and are always being passed over but we think they deserve better! We have a few reasons why we think Carnations deserve a comeback!

  1. Affordability. You can’t beat their affordability. There aren’t many other flowers that can boast such a wonderful price point. When making a larger centerpiece, carnations and their low price point can be very handy as a filler. Mini carnations also make a wonderful filler flower and at such an inexpensive cost.
  • Color. Besides roses, carnations offer one of the largest arrays of colors in the industry. The increasingly popular burgundy and peach carnations have become a staple in many shops giving an illusion of a small peony. Here at main we also offer moon carnations in stunning shades of purple. Everything from lavender to deep, dark, almost black. These come at a slightly higher price point but are still much more affordable than many of their counterparts.
  • Versatility. The carnation has long been used in many different styles of arrangements and events. We have seen it in its heyday being used in black-tie soirees along side roses, lisianthus and spray roses. It also lends itself to a rustic, wildflower feel in many of the shades it comes in. The burgundy, orange and yellow are perfect for a fall themed arrangement. White and red make a beautiful winter time bouquet. Spring and summer boast beautiful pinks, peach, lavender, and the soft green.

Carnations have so many wonderful qualities and personally we would love to see them get more recognition and use! With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we know they will getting lots of love!
