Description

These are the ones everyone loves. Carnations must have full sun, and rich soil with absolutely perfect drainage. Once established, they'll reward you with bouquet after bouquet.

Dianthus is the botanical name of a great group of flowers that includes wild Sweet William, the pinks, and of course, the carnations. Some of the pinks have been in gardens since Elizabethan times, and of today the carnation is a mainstay of the florist trade. Dianthus species are not at all hard to grow, and once they're happy in your garden, they'll return every year with more and more color and fragrance.

Seeds? Yes, we have the meadow favorite, Wild Sweet William (Dianthus barbatus) in our wildflower seed department. It's a favorite biennial that creates waves of magnificent colors (several colors and bi-colors) in wildflower meadows. And its a snap to grow.
