If so, you are not alone. I used to hate them too!
People....it is time to stop your flower snobbery and consider this lowly flower.
As flowers go, you can’t find more affordable and long-lasting bloom...or one that come in such a wide array of fantastic colors. (NO....not the strange dyed colors....but the real ones)
If you want an upscaled look for carnations....you have to think beyond sticking one flower in a bud vase....
In fact.....there are ways to make carnations resemble expensive flowers like Hydrangeas and Peonies!
I bet that got your attention!
