Carnations | Artificial Flowers
The wide range of colours and the versatility of artificial carnations (botanical name, dianthus) makes them a popular flower in floral design.
Did you know? These hardy, fragrant flowers are said to represent love, fascination and distinction but individual colours have individual meanings.
According to Christian legend, carnations first appeared on earth as Jesus carried the Cross. Carnations are said to have sprung up from where the Virgin Mary's tears fell as she cried over her son's plight.
