Plant of the Day: Carnation

Whether given as a sweetly fragrant sign of love, brewed into tea to reduce stress, or made into a moisturizing oil, the carnation (dianthus caryophyllus) is as varied in its uses as it is beautiful. Carnations are a great choice for cut flowers with the blooms lasting for days – as seen in the photo above of carnations in my kitchen this past week. Both annual and perennial varieties are available, so be sure to match the labeling to your purposes.
