Beautiful carnation, but flower was really small Review by Terri Glasscock - Harrington, DE
Posted on 2014-10-26 06:12:33

While I had lots of blooms on this first year flower, the carnations were so small you could hardly see them from 5 feet away.

The beauty and grace of the perennial Laced Romeo Carnation makes it one of the most popular garden and vase flowers decorating many summer yards. Unbelievably fragrant and showy, this low-maintenance garden carnation radiates with rich red hues delicately surrounded by a lace-like trim of pure white. Excellent for introducing beginning gardeners to the joys of cultivating flowers, carnation flowers like the Laced Romeo Carnation can be germinated within 20 days and reach their full height of two and a half feet by mid-summer. The best months to plant this type of garden carnation outside are April, June and July.

Fragrant flowers like the Laced Romeo Carnation will make your whole house smell fresh and delightful. Carnation flowers love to grow in full sun to partial shade environments as well as in fertile, well-drained soil. Using organic compost before planting your garden carnation seeds is optional. Make sure to water your carnations after you have planted them so that the soil is completely settled and then water weekly if rainfall is insufficient. Gardners can help promote the growth of new flowers by removing spent blooms regularly. To create cut flowers for decorative purposes, simply pinch off buds that appear on stem sides, leaving one bud at the top of primary stem.
