Carnations express love, fascination and distinction; and, historically, they are known to have been used for the first time by Greeks and Romans in garlands. Carnations are still one of the most popular flowers, partially due to their long life of 2-3 weeks, even after they are cut. They are perennials, so have high availability all year long. The sweetly scented flowers come in the original pinkish-purple but also in red, white yellow, orange, hot pink, antique and green. Get beautiful flowers delivered to your door with Flowerbx.
