If you haven't noticed the picture in my heading is a bunch of carnations. Carnations or Dianthus Caryophyllus are the birth flower of January. A lot of people a not fans of carnations. They are thought of as cheap filler flower. I think they get a bad wrap. If you get a large bunch all the same color and put them in a simple pretty vase you be very pleased. Give carnations a chance the next time you need to buy flowers.
